Abstract Fairbanks Gold Mining Incorporated (FGMI) began construction of the Fort Knox hardrock gold mine in March 1995. The mine is located in the headwaters of the Fish Creek drainage about 25 km northeast of Fairbanks, Alaska. The project includes an open-pit mine, mill, tailing impoundment, water supply reservoir (WSR), and related facilities. Construction of the WSR dam and Spillway was completed in July 1996. In 2007, state and federal permits were issued for the construction, operation, and closure of a valley fill heap leach facility located in Walter Creek upstream of the tailing pond. Work continued throughout 2012 on the Walter Creek valley fill heap leach facility.
