Is it open to mining?

This link to a description of the history is really interesting reading.

Wow, I had no idea. Its scary to think about the things we don't know about today. That article kinda puts the whole "health care" plan in a new perspective. I wonder whats in the fine print.

Re: what is "mental health land"?

Hi,

Wow, the Wikipedia entry makes it sound so evil! A communist plot!!

From the website geowizard references:

The Trust Land Office (TLO) manages about 1 million acres of Alaska Mental Health Trust land on behalf of the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, which the TLO consults with on a regular basis. Maps of Trust land can be viewed online.

Resource categories managed by the TLO include coal, gas, materials, minerals, oil, real estate and timber. The TLO generates revenues from Trust land through a variety of methods including sales, long-term leases and short-term land use licenses. Trust land transactions are competitive, unless it is clearly in the best interest of the Trust to engage in negotiated transactions. Revenues generated from Trust land management are used by the Trust Authority to improve the lives and circumstance of Trust beneficiaries throughout the state of Alaska.

Most Trust mineral lands are located in Interior and Southeast Alaska, with active exploration and mining taking place in Interior Alaska. The massive Fort Knox Mine, where about 1,000 ounces of gold is produced daily, is located on Trust land north of Fairbanks. Recent exploration in the Livengood area will lead to additional exploration on 9,000 acres of Trust land in that area. The Trust hopes interest will be renewed in an 180,000 block of Trust land in the Salcha area, northwest of the significant mine development activities near Delta Junction (the Pogo mine). Finally, the TLO is encouraging renewed interest in Trust land in the McGrath and Haines areas.

While many State of Alaska mining claims exist on Trust land, new mining claim staking is not allowed on Trust land. Instead, Trust minerals, like other Trust resources, are disposed of on a competitive basis, unless the best interest of the Trust indicates otherwise.

Trust material sales (sand, gravel, rock, and stone) currently take place near Southeast Alaska communities (e.g. Petersburg and Wrangell) and in Interior Alaska, with increasing interest in unique materials available at the Fort Knox mine site.

MTH lands do come up lease and sale. You just have to keep an eye on their website.
