Kisimigiuktuk Hill – This site is located approximately 7 miles north of Kivalina at Section 19, T28N, R25W KRM.  GPS coordinates are N67º48.723, W164º24.081.  It contains grey-weathering, grey-to light tan, fine to medium grained crystalline limestone.  Like Asaqpa, this potential site is not accessible by road.

 

Other – There are other unnamed gravel sources along the Kivalina and Wulik rivers.  Clasts include limestone, sandstone, argillite, black chert and occassionally quartzite.  Some sites along the river may be state-owned, with adjacent NANA-owned gravel.  Both the DOT&PF (see Obtaining Gravel from State Resources page) and NANA should be contacted to determine material ownership.
