Donlin Gold has suspended its drilling program and plans to remove most of its employees from its remote work camp in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta starting April 9.
Tribes, organizations, and communities have begun opposing the mine development and organizing.
Donlin Gold promised to hire local workers for its proposed gold mine. To fulfill that promise, the company knows that it has to start now. And it has to start young.
Donlin Gold wants to build one of the biggest gold mines in the world in the Y-K Delta. The company promises to employ hundreds of local people to build and operate it.
