  1. Receive and distribute information on Donlin Gold’s plans, operations and monitoring activities.
  2. Communicate information of local subsistence activities and traditional knowledge as it relates to information shared by Donlin.
  3. Provide a forum for stakeholders to discuss potential issues of concern related to Donlin Gold’s plans, operations or monitoring activities on subsistence activities, wildlife or habitat.
