Flying Post Celebration

September 30, 2022

Building close partnerships with our host communities and the Indigenous communities impacted by our activities is an integral part of IAMGOLD’s commitment to accountable mining and sustainable development. The support and insight we receive from our community partners is crucial in ensuring we can maximize the benefits of our mining activities for all involved.

This summer, along with Sumitomo Metal Mining, our joint venture partner, we gathered in Nipigon with Flying Post First Nation for a day of activities and a shared a community feast at their newly constructed administration office.  Our partnership supports tangible and long-term benefits for the community as together we build the Côté Gold mine in Ontario.

Our meeting was an opportunity to celebrate our partnership. We would like to thank Flying Post First Nation for their trust, many contributions and willingness to find common ground as we continue to develop and grow our relationship. 

Flying Post First Nation is one of three Indigenous partners on our Côté Gold project, along with Mattagami First Nation and the Métis Nation of Ontario, Region 3.
