Fairhaven Project

The Fairhaven Project is a regional reconnaissance mapping and sampling program that seeks to tie together the historic Placer operations in the area to identity prospective areas for continued exploration efforts. Soil sampling methodologies were adapted to account for the presence of permafrost. Field crews worked at 4 distinct, but proximally located, historically active placer gold mining areas. Geologic mapping and soil sampling was conducted along with prospect examinations

Chuchuna Minerals

Chuchuna Mineral’s Groundhog property lies immediately northeast of the Pebble deposit in southwest Alaska near the town of Nondalton. Alaska Earth Sciences (AES) continues to carry out all the project management and technical staff for geologic and baseline study field programs as well as actively engaging the community through regular informational meetings and providing opportunities for local employment. In 2017, Alaska Earth Sciences completed the first drill holes on the property with significant personnel support from the nearby community

Graphite Creek

Graphite One Resources Inc.

Graphite Creek located 60 km north of Nome, AK is the largest known large-flake graphite deposit in the United States and the project is quickly approaching the pre-feasibility stage. Graphite One utilizes Alaska Earth Sciences (AES) for their geologic and project management skills by hiring AES to provide project managers, camp managers, camp support, geologists, and logistics in the field. AES provides GIS and 3D modelling services to the project. AES also serves as the qualified person overseeing the quality assurance and quality control of the project, and an updated NI 43-101 Technical Report.
