Restore the Site

Abandoned after decades of mining, the Stibnite area needs repair. Through mining and economic investment, the Stibnite Gold Project will restore the water quality, landscape, fisheries and natural habitat of the area.

We are committed to creating a project that will leave the environment in better condition than we found it. And while we restore the site, the Stibnite Gold Project will contribute millions of dollars to the local and state economies and provide hundreds of high-paying jobs to Idahoans.

Planning for the future also means saving for the future. Before mining begins, we will set aside the funds necessary to complete the environmental reclamation of the area.

Environment, Social Responsibility and Good Governance

We are taking steps to more formally define these aspects of the company, demonstrate these commitments through our actions and report on them regularly.

Mining & the environment can work together

For us, “Restore the Site” means breathing new life into a historic mining district.

The Stibnite Gold Project is unlike any other mining project. With our plan, we can improve an area damaged by 100 years of mining while also helping to grow Idaho’s economy.

We can correct the damage of the past.

The Stibnite Gold Project site has a long history of mining.  A lot has changed since the first miners found the site more than a century ago and began the extraction of minerals critical to our national interests. Today, we understand the environmental sensitivities of the area and have increasingly high standards guiding our work. This area will not recover on its own. With restoration as our goal, we can use mining to rewrite the site’s legacy.

We are committed to sustainable operations from the start. Each year, we track our work and report our efforts to lower our ecological footprint, be a meaningful member of our community and a valued economic partner.
