If the proposed exchange were to occur, Doyon would receive free title to approximately 108,028 acres of Refuge lands and approximately 93,800 acres of leasable mineral estate that may hold developable oil and gas resources. In exchange, the US Fish and Wildlife Service (Government of the United States) would receive free title lands of equal value currently owned by Doyon, including quality wetland habitats, within the Refuge boundary. Once approved, the appraisals will provide decision makers a basis to consummate and/or reconfigure the land exchange. This significant exchange is complex and likely to draw controversy.
