NovaGold Update (above picture is property of NovaGold)

March 17, 2011

NovaGold (NG) -- Novagold rejected a buyout from Barrick Gold (ABX) for $16 a share several years ago and it has been all downhill for Novagold since then. The company's two flagship properties are still many years away from operations, and progress on them is proceeding at a snail's pace, while the company's once-promising Rock Creek mine has been written off the balance sheet entirely after environmental problems and a fatal accident ruined that mine's utility.

As best as I can tell, shares have rebounded from less than 50 cents to more than $12 largely due to a slick press relations campaign combined with the investment of several noted investors such as George Soros, who bought in at prices of less than half what Novagold trades for today. The company still is woefully underfinanced and cannot build either its Donlin Creek or Galore Creek mines without selling itself out entirely or diluting itself beyond recognition.

Summer (June thru August) Recycling In Georgetown

March 1, 2011

Happy New Year! Everyone.  We would like to introduce a new recycling program in Georgetown, beginning June 2011 thru August 2011.  The program will be for “Georgetown Tribal Members” located in the Georgetown area to recycle their aluminum cans, glass, and batteries.

Recycling areas will be clearly marked with signs on both sides of the River, old Georgetown Site and New Georgetown site.   So members, if you are in Georgetown this summer, please recycle your cans, glass, and batteries at the designated areas.  Also, No Trash is allowed in the recycling bins.  Recycling is a community wide project to help keep our Georgetown looking great.

If you would like further information or have any comments, questions, or suggestions regarding the recycling program , please contact environmental coordinator Helen Traylor at

We need your help ensuring the success of your Georgetown’s environmental programs, plus it helps us provide programs that you want and need for
