Environmental Stewardship Is Our Priority

Alaskans cherish their State, it’s clean air, water, wildlife and outdoor lifestyle.  Tower Hill Mines shares these values and is committed to using modern mining practices and technologies to protect the environment while creating high paying, environmentally responsible jobs for generations of Alaskans.

At  Tower Hill, we share the desire to protect the environment because we also are people of Alaska. Our senior staff in Alaska are 100% long term residents. We share the Alaskan values and ethic to protect the environment in the same way as our neighbors in the Alaska communities where we live and work and are raising our families

As Alaskans and Tower Hill employees, we are committed to not just building the Livengood Mine– we are going to build it right!  The Livengood Mine is located in an historic mining district where mining dates back to the early 1900s.  Today, modern mines are subject to strict environmental controls to protect the environment, including the air, water, fishery and wildlife resources and their habitats.  Stringent environmental and reclamation controls implemented through a rigorous permitting process assure the protection of Alaskan lands and resources. Since 2008, we have been conducting environmental studies to characterize environmental conditions, including extensive research to understand:

  • Rock Characterization.
  • Geohydrology.
  • Surface Water & Hydrology.
  • Meteorology & Air Quality.
  • Wetlands & Vegetation.
  • Aquatic Studies.
  • Wildlife & Habitat Studies.
  • Cultural Resources.

With this information, working together with the regulators and stakeholders, we will plan and construct a mine that will employ Alaskans for years to come and protect this beautiful land we call home.
