IAMGOLD

IAMGOLD, a mid-tier gold mining company operating in three regions globally: North America, South America, and West Africa, is developing Côté Gold – an open pit gold mining project in northern Ontario. The Project is a joint venture between IAMGOLD Corporation and Sumitomo Metal Mining. Côté Gold is located in Treaty 9 territory, on the traditional lands of Mattagami First Nation, Flying Post First Nation and is within the traditional harvesting territory of the Métis Nation of Ontario, Region 3.
