Official opening of Nunavut’s Doris Gold Mine
In June, TMAC Resources Inc. (TSE: TMR), operator of the Hope Bay property in the Kitikmeot, held its Doris Gold Mine opening celebrations. The celebration included words from the Kitikmeot Inuit Association and Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated, and a passage from Senator Dennis Patterson was read.

It was very moving to have Doris Kallak, the daughter of Noel Avadluk, and the first (Inuk) prospector at Hope Bay, present for the mine opening. In the 1960s, when Doris was five years old, Noel named the lake for his daughter – and the mine was subsequently named for the lake.

Commercial production was achieved at Doris Mine on May 15, 2017. The mine plan calls for the Doris deposit to be mined first. Madrid and Boston properties are expected to commence production in 2020 and 2022, respectively.

TMAC has a 100% interest in the 1,101 sq. km Hope Bay property. Hope Bay is a high-grade gold deposit with proven and probable reserves totalling approximately 3.5 million ounces of gold. Total measured and indicated resources are 4.5 million ounces of gold.
