Trilogy faces Arctic road block

Trilogy Metals has received another setback on the development of the Ambler Access Project (AAP) for its Arctic copper project in Alaska, USA which it is looking to develop with South32 as the US Department of the Interior (DOI) filed a motion to remand the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) and suspend the right-of-way permits issued to its local development partner the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA). The DOI said the suspension will allow it to carry out additional supplemental work on the environmental impact statement.

The DOI motion also indicated that it requested that the lawsuits filed against it by a coalition of national and Alaska environmental non-government organisations be suspended.
