Fact Matrix in Response to May 28, 2020 JCAP Report

Sentence Statement Response Factual Support
1 (2)1 For the last 15 years, NovaGold’s management team has systematically misled investors with subjective presentation of information about a deposit so remote and technically challenging that the mine will never be built.  False and Misleading
  • The information presented was objective and factual, not subjective, based on reliable information available at the time.
  • It is false and misleading to conflate two eras of management over the past fifteen years into one.  The present management team has been leading NOVAGOLD for the past eight years.
  • It is common in the gold mining industry to deal with remote properties.  Donlin Gold, however, is not so remote or technically challenging that the mine could not be built.  The feasibility of the Donlin Gold project is documented in the publicly-available Donlin Creek Gold Project Alaska, USA, NI 43-101 Technical Report on Second Updated Feasibility Study,” effective November 18, 2011, amended January 20, 2012 (“FSU2”).
  • The FSU2 details the extensive technical, environmental, and social studies that were conducted by reputable firms with Donlin Gold’s Native Corporation partners and local stakeholders to ensure the longevity and viable development of such an important deposit in the Yukon-Kuskokwim region. 
  • The pipeline design and analysis are detailed in  NOVAGOLD’s FSU2 and Donlin Gold’s  “Natural Gas Pipeline Plan of Development Donlin Gold, Revision 1”, December 2013, prepared by SRK Consulting, Inc., “Supplemental Information for the Donlin Gold Natural Gas Pipeline State Pipeline Right-of-Way Lease Application (ADL 231908)”, December 2017, prepared by Donlin Gold, and ”Natural Gas Pipeline Project Design Basis Memorandum Revision 2, April 2018, prepared by Michael Baker International.
