A judge of the Federal District of Alaska is expected to render a decision soon in a dispute regarding the development of a 340-kilometre, east-west-running controlled industrial access road that would provide access to the Ambler Mining District in northwestern Alaska.

In its first-quarter financial report released on Wednesday, Trilogy Metals (TSX: TMQ; NYSE American: TMQ) revealed that the U.S. Department of the Interior’s (DOI) Bureau of Land Management (BLM) had on April 5 filed a response to court briefs lodged on March 22 by the so-called intervenor defendants, including Ambler Metals, the Aboriginal-owned NANA Regional Corporation (NANA), the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) and the State of Alaska.
