Alaska Mining Stocks

My kids recently expressed their frustration that we don't own any shares of mines in Alaska. My single gold mining stock hasn't performed nearly as well as my silver mining stocks, so I've been looking to diversify. Here's a list of some publicly-traded Alaska miners:

Teck (TCK - Red Dog)
Barrick Gold Corporation (ABX - Donlin Creek)
Novagold Resources (NG - Donlin Creek, Rock Creek)
Anglo American (AAUKY - Pebble)
Northern Dynasty Minerals (NAK - Pebble)
Hecla Mining Company (HL - Greens Creek)
Kinross (KGC - Fort Knox)
Sumitomo Metal Mining Co (STMNF - Pogo)
Fire River Gold (FVGCF - Nixon Fork)
Niblack Mineral Development (NIBMF - Niblack)
Heatherdale Resources (HTRRF - Niblack)
Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation (CDE - Kensington)
Freegold Ventures (FGOVF - three projects in Alaska)
BHP Billiton (BHP - Western Arctic coal)
Rubicon Minerals (RBY - exploration in Alaska)
Kiska Metals (KSKTF - three projects in Alaska)
International Tower Hill Mines (THM - Livengood project)
Tri-Valley Corporation (TIV - two projects in Alaska)
Full Metal Minerals (FLMTF- seven or more projects in Alaska)

I'll try to post a brief profile of each of these as I decide which one(s) to invest in.

Disclosure: I do not directly own shares of any of the stocks mentioned, but plan to purchase one or more of them within the next two months. I do own Rubicon and International Tower Hill indirectly through the Market Vectors Junior Miners ETF (GDXJ), but have no plans to sell in the foreseeable future.

Update (4/11/11): Added Full Metal Minerals, who were doing all the work at Lucky Shot in Hatcher Pass, a few miles from my house.
Update (5/16/11): The ticker symbol for Full Metal Minerals was incorrect.
