Abstract
This U.S. Bureau of Mines publication presents a case study of the processes used in permitting the Nome Offshore Placer Project, a gold mining project offshore Nome, Alaska, which operated from 1985 through 1990. The mining project, developed by Western Gold Exploration and Mining Company, limited partnership (West Gold), used the BIMA, which was at the time the largest bucketline mining vessel in the world, to dredge gold from the ocean floor.
