The Northern Miner (Feb 11-17, 2013) now describes Donlin Creek as a MONSTER GOLD DEPOSIT with more than 43 million ounces of gold! To get some concept of how big this deposit is, we must compare to one of the more extraordinary gold deposits in history - the Homestake mine in South Dakota. The Homestake operated over 123 years, making it one of the longest lived gold mines in history. Production began in 1878 and ceased in 2001 after the mine produced 39.8 million ounces of gold. The Homestake was one of the longest listed stocks on the NYSE in history!
The Northern Miner reports that the Donlin Creek is a the largest undeveloped gold deposit in the world!
