Donlin Gold is working with NOVAGOLD Resources, Barrick Gold Corporation, The Kuskokwim Corporation and Calista Corporation to build a gold-mining project near Donlin Creek in the Yukon Kuskokwim region.
The project will last an estimated 27 years, providing jobs to thousands of people and many millions of dollars in taxes to the State of Alaska. Read more about the project here.
Donlin Gold is led by General Manager Dan Graham. Dan was promoted to General Manager of Donlin Gold LLC in June of 2020. He led the permit efforts for Donlin for 3 years prior to that. He is a professional Mining Engineer and graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks mining engineering program. He has worked in the Alaska mining industry for over 36 years.
The timeline to develop a gold mine in Alaska is lengthy. Permitting, environmental reviews and community consultation is extensive. The next step is to complete the State of Alaska Dam Safety permitting process. Once the project reaches the construction phase, many jobs will become available. Donlin Gold is committed to and required by a legal agreement with Calista Corporation to ensure shareholder and local hire for construction, then operation, of the mine.
Donlin Gold has been conducting environmental studies of the region and planning the engineering of this project for more than 20 years. Donlin Gold is determined to be the industry leader in safety and the example of the right way to develop Alaska’s resources.
Donlin Gold LLC is an Alaskan operated company that is owned by NOVAGOLD Resources Alaska Inc., a subsidiary of NOVAGOLD RESOURCES Inc., and Barrick Gold U.S. Inc., a subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corporation.
