The Unalakleet River is located in the northwestern part of Alaska and drains into Norton Sound. The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of December 2, 1980, established the upper portion of the Unalakleet River as a component of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System to be administered by BLM. Approximately 65 miles have been designated as a "wild" river pursuant to the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act and is protected by a "corridor" of BLM managed land. Land within the protective river corridor which is located within one half mile of the upper portions of the Unalakleet River is withdrawn, subject to valid existing rights, from all forms of appropriation under the mining laws and the mineral leasing laws.
