United States

In the United States, we are evaluating and searching across continental United States and in Alaska for quality exploration and mine development opportunities. Our 2018 exploration budget of $9.8 million is principally focused on outside exploration opportunities largely in the western United States and Alaska.

Delta: In 2018 we plan to evaluate select areas on our 100%-owned Delta project in Alaska to identify targets for resource expansion drilling in 2019.

Helm Bay: Agnico Eagle generated the Helm Bay target by compilation, and acquired the property by staking. It is in an area where there was small-scale mining of a narrow, high-grade gold vein in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In 2018 we plan to conduct surface sampling and geophysical surveys across our 100%-owned Helm Bay property in southeast Alaska to identify targets for drilling planned for 2019.
