Donlin Gold Overview

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 Andy Cole, a former Executive Director of Barrick who has extensive experience in the mining industry, and staffed by a wide range of scientists, engineers and laborers. In several years, after the project completes the permitting process, we will expand our crew for construction, then operation, of the mine.

We have been conducting environmental studies of the region and planning the engineering of this project for more than 20 years. At Donlin Gold, we are 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 Alaska company that is owned by NOVAGOLD Resources Alaska Inc., an Alaska company and subsidiary of NOVAGOLD RESOURCES Inc., and Barrick Gold U.S. Inc., a California company and subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corporation.
