↓ What makes Midas a modern mining company?

We believe mining and the environment can work together.  In the case of the Stibnite Gold Project, we can use mining to improve the existing environmental conditions at site.

We are a company of scientists, engineers, environmentalists and community leaders. We are driven by our belief that we can build a mining project that helps the environment, creates economic opportunity and benefits the surrounding community. These values drive us in everything we do. They are what make us a modern mining company.

↓ When will Midas Gold begin mining?

It will be several years before we start any mining at the Stibnite Gold Project site. Our next step is to submit a Plan of Operations to the U.S. Forest Service. We will continue to gather feedback from the public as we work with state and federal regulators. View our timeline.

↓ What does the project site look like today?

There is significant environmental damage at Stibnite. For nearly 100 years, people have mined the area for gold, antimony, silver and tungsten. Old mining practices left the area littered with open pits, tailings and piles of waste.

Since those early days, mining standards and practices have changed dramatically. While some environmental clean-up has taken place, much of the area has not been reclaimed or remediated to modern standards. Please visit our Environment page to learn more about current conditions.

↓ How can Midas Gold help the environment?

We are designing our Stibnite Gold Project to clean up areas on site that are currently affecting water quality, blocking fish passage and impacting the area’s natural habitat. Through mining we can restore the site and leave it better than we found it.

↓ When will Midas Gold make the environment better?

We are already making Stibnite’s environment better today. From planting trees, to powering our operations through solar power — our positive impact has already started.

Most of the environmental repair will happen before construction begins and reclamation will continue alongside mining.

↓ What is Midas Gold doing now?

Right now, we are planning for the future. We have completed much of our exploration work and are in the design and planning phase of the Stibnite Gold Project. We are focused on completing environmental studies, gathering feedback from the public and designing the mining and restoration plan.

↓ What type of jobs can Valley County count on for the future?

In the future, we will need hundreds of people to create and manage the Stibnite Gold Project. Positions will include construction workers, mining experts, environmental specialists along with many other jobs. We are committed to looking to Idaho first for employment and vendors. For now, our team includes a talented group of people committed to the idea that modern mining can leave a lasting positive impact on the environment, economy and people of Idaho.
