NovaGold Endorses Barrick's Position on the Donlin Gold Project - "We are very encouraged by the position taken by Barrick Gold regarding the advancement of Donlin Gold," said Greg Lang, NovaGold's President and Chief Executive Officer. "With the annual expenditures at Donlin Gold through the permitting process expected to be a modest $40 million on a 100% basis over several years, the co-owners of the Project have an incredible opportunity to optimize capital and operating costs and yet take full advantage of Donlin Gold's significant leverage to the price of gold in an environment of what the Company strongly believes is a secular bull market in gold. We cannot over-emphasize our belief that, in an era increasingly defined by asset scarcity and resource nationalism, this exceptionally large, high-grade, long-life and geopolitically safe gold project provides its stakeholders with a unique opportunity for substantial wealth generation for many years to come. Furthermore, with its strong and time-honored relationship with Calista Corporation and The Kuskokwim Corporation, who own the mineral and surface rights to Donlin Gold, our Project team can continue strengthening its well-established track record of social engagement and environmental stewardship in the community."
