Last week, we announced agreements to acquire 70% of the Peak Gold project in Alaska from Royal Gold and Contango ORE. The agreement is expected to benefit local communities, in particular the Upper Tanana Athabascan Village of Tetlin.
Over the course of several months, Kinross held productive meetings with leaders of the Village of Tetlin, who indicated their support of the project development plan, and working towards a mutually beneficial partnership with the Company. Kinross plans to rename the project in consultation with the Village.
Captured above, Kinross representatives in one of several socially distanced meetings with members of the village council upon signing the agreement on September 29th.
