The Tongass National Forest issued a decision to allow a limited expansion of Hecla Greens Creek Mining Company’s (GCM) tailings facility in Admiralty Island National Monument (ANM).
Tongass National Forest Supervisor Forrest Cole selected a modified Alternative D from the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), with those modifications described in the Record of Decision (ROD). The primary modification is not to authorize construction of a second tailings disposal facility in the Fowler Creek watershed as described in Alternatives C and D of the Final EIS.
The Tongass National Forest has issued its Record of Decision (ROD) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Big Thorne Project. The decision allows for the harvest of 148.9 million board feet from approximately 6,186 acres of old-growth and 2,299 acres of young-growth near Thorne Bay and Coffman Cove on Prince of Wales Island within the Thorne Bay Ranger District.
The Forest Service believes the action could help stabilize the timber industry in Southeast Alaska as the Tongass makes a shift toward young growth timber harvests in the future.
