The Kinross Gold
Ore Transportation Route
The mining plan being presented for approval to the Alaska Department of Transportation and Alaska’s elected leaders will have as many as 96 double tractor-trailered ore hauling trucks on our highways traveling between Tetlin and Cleary Summit and back. They travel along the Alaska Highway, Richardson Highway, Mitchell Expressway, Peger Road, Johansen Expressway and Steese Highway. The trucks will rumble through Tok, Dot Lake, Delta Junction, Salcha, North Pole, Fairbanks and Fox on their way to the Ft. Knox mill, where they will each deliver their individual payloads totaling 10 million pounds every day. Each ore hauler will be 120 feet long and weigh up to 80 tons.
