$618M plan for Port of Nome

A $618 million expansion proposal for the Port of Nome would roughly double the length of the port’s west causeway, seen here with a vessel moored, and add a nearly 1,400-foot breakwater with three large vessel docks in deep water. The project is a step closer toward happening after the Corps of Engineers approved the plan on June 1. (Photo/Courtesy/US Army Corps of Engineers)

The 2020 American Water Infrastructure Act passed out of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee May 11 containing language directing Corps leaders to expedite approval of the Nome project.

Graphite One

Graphite One plans to execute a 2021 Drilling Program at its Graphite Creek Property located near Nome, Alaska.

The drill program follows Graphite One’s Preliminary Feasibility Study (“PFS”), scheduled for completion in the 4th Quarter of 2021. Approximately 3,000 meters of HQ core drilling is planned for the program to in-fill and expand the Measured and Indicated resources of graphitic carbon for the Feasibility Study (“FS”).

Additional geotechnical drilling is planned for open pit mine design and to advance the understanding of ground conditions in proposed infrastructure sites. In addition to the proposed 2021 Drilling Program, site visits and field work by the engineering team will be completed, additional environmental baseline data will be collected, and community outreach activities will continue during the 2021 field season. The Drilling Program and other field work are expected to begin in July.

The United States remains 100% reliant on foreign supply of natural graphite, despite the U.S. Government listing the resource as one of the 35 critical minerals and metals vital to the United States’ security and economic prosperity1. Graphite One’s deposit in western Alaska remains the largest known source of natural graphite in the United States. According to the World Bank, global graphite demand for clean energy applications alone – primarily electric vehicle batteries and energy storage systems — is expected to rise by 494% between now and 2050.

Clean your light bulbs!

What? Who does that? Well, smart people. A dirty bulb emits 30% less light than a clean one. Dust off both the bulb and fixture, and you might be able to cut back on the number or brightness of lights in each room without noticing any difference.

And replace any older bulbs with LED bulbs…….By replacing just five of your most-used incandescent bulbs with uber-efficient light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs, you could save $75 a year on your energy bill.

And LEDs last 15-20 times longer than incandescents, so you won’t have to replace them nearly as often.
