Gravel and Rock Material Sales

BBNC collaborates with Bristol Bay’s village corporations and municipalities to identify and develop local sources of gravel or rock for infrastructure projects in the Bristol Bay region and elsewhere.

  • We regularly partner with companies, educational institutions, federal and state agencies, and other organizations to study our lands and their potential.
  • We partnered with Choggiung Limited to redevelop the Snake Lake Quarry outside of Dillingham, providing an additional source of high-quality rock to western Bristol Bay, and are working with Igiugig Village Council to develop a quarry at Diamond Point on Cook Inlet that will be capable of delivering rock to projects in Kenai Peninsula and southcentral Alaska.
  • Bristol Bay communities can request donations of up to 1,000 cubic yards of sand, gravel, or rock for their community projects each year.

BBNC opposes the proposed Pebble mine project as well as offshore oil and gas leasing in the North Aleutian Basin.

Alaska Native Land Allotments for Veterans

When the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) became law in 1971, it repealed the 1906 Native Allotment program—with a provision that all pending claims could be processed. Some Alaska Natives had missed the opportunity to apply, however, because they were serving in the Armed Forces during the years leading up to 1971. The John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act, passed in March 2019, gives those services members and their heirs an opportunity to apply for allotments until Dec. 27, 2025.
