Sustainability Factsheet Highlights

  • U.S. GoldMining is committed to advancing the Whistler Gold-Copper Project (“Whistler” or the “Project”), Alaska
    • As Whistler advances through exploration and potentially enters into development and production in the future, Alaska would stand to benefit from subsequent direct and downstream economic growth and job creation.
    • Whistler has the potential to contribute to the U.S. domestic supply of copper in the future, a critical metal as defined by the U.S. Department of Energy, which is essential to the clean energy transition. 
  • U.S. GoldMining spent approximately US$4.3M in 2023 with local Alaskan suppliers and contractors, demonstrating the Company’s commitment to bring economic opportunities and jobs to Alaska. 
    • Key contracts awarded to local businesses include drilling, camp services and maintenance, aviation, expediting and supply of fuel and other consumables. 
  • U.S. GoldMining's commitment to supporting local community causes and events is exemplified by donations in excess of US$60,000 over the past year to, among others, local Alaskan non-government organizations and to support sporting and community events.
  • U.S. GoldMining's steadfast commitment to health and safety management included providing 192 hours of health and safety training to our personnel and contractors, and 2,070 hours of health and safety initiatives and management activities.
  • U.S. GoldMining’s policy on diversity and inclusion resulted in 50% female representation on the Company’s Board of Directors. 

Tim Smith, Chief Executive Officer of U.S. GoldMining, commented: “I am extremely proud of the efforts we have made as a new organization in our first year of operation, to have developed and implemented a sustainability program including rollout of environmental baseline studies, health and safety management systems and processes, and stakeholder engagement programs. We aspire to be stewards of the environment while advancing the Whistler Gold-Copper Project. As we look ahead to another exciting exploration season this coming summer, we remain committed to the safety of our people and contractors, continuing respectful community consultation and maintaining environmental sustainability, ahead of all other objectives.”
