NOVAGOLD’s Commitment to People

At NOVAGOLD, our core values revolve around empowering each employee to reach their full potential, providing opportunities for every individual to make a meaningful impact, and ensuring that every voice is heard.


At Donlin Gold, commitment to supporting local Alaska Native communities is demonstrated through various initiatives. This includes prioritizing local hiring preferences, fostering employment opportunities, providing assistance to business enterprises, promoting economic diversification, preserving subsistence lifestyles, and offering preferential contract considerations for suppliers owned by Native individuals or entities. These efforts align with specific Alaska Native employment and contracting requirements outlined in life-of-mine agreements with Calista and TKC. Our focus as the project advances remains unwavering on developing programs that benefit local communities. These programs encompass enhancements to infrastructure, support for education and health services, preservation of cultural heritage, creation of employment and business prospects, generation of income through the mining lease and surface use agreements with Calista and TKC, respectively, and a commitment to environmental restoration and protection.
