Y-K Delta villages discuss potential threats of upriver gold mine

Talk of the proposed Donlin Creek Gold Mine consumed almost all the time at the Association of Village Council Presidents’ (AVCP) annual convention held last week in Bethel. AVCP is the nonprofit organization representing 56 tribal villages in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. The proposed mine site is upriver from almost every AVCP village on the Kuskokwim.
