United States

In the United States, we are evaluating and searching across the continental United States and in Alaska for quality exploration and mine development opportunities. Our 2021 exploration activities were principally focused on internal exploration properties largely in the western United States and Alaska, and we continue to evaluate external opportunities.

Delta: We continue to evaluate select areas on our 100%-owned Delta project in Alaska to identify targets for future resource expansion drilling.

Helm Bay: Agnico Eagle acquired a 100% interest in the Helm Bay property in southeastern Alaska by staking. The Helm Bay area was the site of small-scale mining during the late 1800s and early 1900s of numerous high-grade gold quartz veins.

Gryphon Gold: In 2018, Agnico Eagle entered into a joint venture option agreement to earn a 75% interest in the 10,000-hectare Gryphon Gold property in central Nevada. Extensive geological mapping, and geochemical and geophysical surveys have been conducted to better define the existing sediment-hosted gold targets and to generate additional opportunities at this project.
