Alaska Mental Health Trust is planning on leasing 11,000 acres (over 18 square miles) of subsurface coal leases in Chickaloon (see Map).
This is an URGENT call to action.
The Alaska Mental Health Land Trust is once again planning to lease lands in and around Chickaloon for coal development. According to the Trust Land Office, they have received unsolicited inquiries from multiple mining companies about the lands in Chickaloon. They are considering conducting a competitive lease offering for these lands.
At a two day Board of Trustees meeting May 10-11 in Anchorage, they may decide to lease Chickaloon coal again!
Things to comment on:
The Board meeting is two days, May 10-11. The Chickaloon leases may be voted on either day.
