NovaGold's 2011 Annual Integrated Report
NovaGold's 2011 Annual Integrated Report covers a transformational period in NovaGold's 15-year history. Across the entire arc of its asset base, the Company's projects were de-risked by the following positive developments:
- Donlin Gold, NovaGold's flagship project, successfully passed feasibility and has emerged as perhaps the most important gold development asset in the world today;
- Galore Creek, a major copper/gold asset, successfully passed pre-feasibility and has been shown to have the potential to be Canada's largest copper mine;
- Ambler is a copper-rich district now owned by NovaCopper Inc. (an independent publicly traded company), which was spun out from NovaGold earlier this month. One of its deposits, called Arctic, was the subject of a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment. In addition, significant high-grade intersections were obtained from drill results on the Bornite deposit, also located in the Ambler district, which is emerging as one of the industry's most exciting copper exploration plays.
"Armed with these exceptional results, our management team and Board of Directors recognized the need, and devised a strategic plan, to unlock the value of the Company's world-class mining development and exploration assets,” said Gregory A. Lang, NovaGold's President and Chief Executive Officer. "With the successful execution of this strategy, and now also being in the fortunate position of having a robust balance sheet, we have created, quite possibly, the most significant de-risked development-stage company in our sector.”
