Donlin Gold is a world-class gold deposit owned by Indigenous Alaska Native landowners, Calista Corporation and The Kuskokwim Corporation. Located in Western Alaska in the Yukon-Kuskokwim region, the Donlin Gold deposit ranks fourth in the world with probable gold deposits estimated at 33.8 million ounces.
In partnership with NOVAGOLD Resources, Barrick Gold Corporation, The Kuskokwim Corporation and Calista Corporation, Donlin Gold is advancing the project; all federal permits are in hand and only a few state permits are yet to be received. The proposed mine will provide thousands of jobs during construction, which is estimated to take three to four years. In addition to hundreds if not thousands employment opportunities during mine operation, the project will have an estimated at a 27-year mine life.
Preservation of subsistence ways of life and meaningful benefits to Yukon-Kuskokwim Alaska Native shareholders are a top priority for Donlin Gold.
