|Riding the Queen trench at the Donlin Creek giant gold deposit (1988).|
Comparing Donlin Creek to the Homestake gold mine in South Dakota. The Homestake was discovered in 1876 and mining began in 1878 ending 123 years later in 2001, only after the Homestake had produced 39.8 million ounces of gold. The Homestake was one of the longest listed stocks on the NYSE in history!
The Northern Miner (2013) now reports that the Donlin Creek property is a Monster Gold deposit that was discovered in Alaska in 1988. The property is classified as the largest undeveloped gold deposit in the world - with 43 million ounces identified to date.
