Donlin Gold would like to thank its employees, contractors and service providers for their diligence and discipline this past year as we all learned to navigate extremely dynamic health and safety requirements. As a result of the dedication and discipline by each and every member of the Donlin Gold extended family, there were ZERO COVID-19 cases at our remote western Alaska project site. In partnership with Tribal Councils, local governments, Ryan Air, Alaska Air Transit and families of our employees from seventeen (17) Yukon-Kuskokwim (Y-K) region villages, we were able to transport our people to and from work in a safe and COVID-responsible manner. Thank you all!
As we all welcome a new year, and the hope of widespread vaccination, Donlin Gold is focused on the 2022 drilling program and the aggressive goals we will work hard to accomplish. With special recognition to our Alaska Native partners and landowners, Calista Corporation and The Kuskokwim Corporation, we look forward to a safe and productive 2022 drilling season.
