Western Editor Matthew Keevil visits Goldcorp’s (TSX: G; NYSE:GG) recently-acquired Coffee gold project 130 km south of Dawson City in the Yukon Territory. We meet up with Goldcorp’s executive vice-president of corporate affairs and sustainability, Brent Bergeron, to talk about plans for the project, social license issues, and natural resource investment in Canada.
Previous owner Kaminak Resources tabled a feasibility study for Coffee that envisioned $317 million in preproduction capital to build a mine that would produce 193,000 oz. gold annually over a 10-year mine life at all-in sustaining costs of US$550 per oz. gold. But Goldcorp has a much bigger operation in mind.
