IAMGOLD wins Discovery of the Year Award for Nelligan Project

Exploration XPLOR Award Best Discovery

Congratulations to IAMGOLD’s Exploration team for winning the Discovery of the Year award at the Mining Exploration Association of Quebec’s XPLOR 2019 Awards Gala on October 23 for the Nelligan Project, an IAMGOLD-Vanstar Resources joint venture in Quebec, Canada! “The discovery of the Nelligan deposit - which hosts 3.2 million ounces as declared from a recently completed maiden resource estimate - is the result of taking a chance and boldly committing our precious human and financial efforts. The team worked hard to achieve this outstanding result and to successfully advance the project to the completion of a first 43-101 compliant resource,” says Marie-France Bugnon, General Manager, Exploration, IAMGOLD.

The Discovery of the Year award highlights the importance of a recent mineral discovery that has produced a significant ripple effect on exploration activities, on the property itself or in the immediate area. IAMGOLD takes pride in the dedication and hard work of its Exploration team and appreciates our talented partners who enabled this extraordinary discovery.
