NOMINATION OF KEVIN MCARTHUR TO NOVAGOLD’S BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 

Kevin McArthur has been nominated to join the Board of NOVAGOLD. His extensive professional career encompasses over 40 years of diverse experience in the mining industry, which includes executive tenures with some of the most successful companies in our business. From 2006 to 2008, he served as CEO of Goldcorp Inc. and from 1999 to 2006, of Glamis Gold Ltd. Between 2009 and 2019, he served as CEO, and then as Executive Chair, of Tahoe Resources Inc., which was subsequently acquired by Pan American Silver Corporation. He currently serves as a nonexecutive director of Royal Gold, Inc. and of First Quantum Minerals Ltd. Earlier in his career, he held progressively responsible operating positions with major companies, such as BP Minerals and Homestake Mining Company. Mr. McArthur holds a Mining Engineering degree from the University of Nevada.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Board has determined that Mr. McArthur’s broad experience in the mining industry will be particularly valuable to NOVAGOLD as it continues to advance its 50%-owned Donlin Gold project up the value chain, toward feasibility study update and, subsequently, toward design, construction and mine start-up. The remainder of the slate of director nominees is comprised of the current members of NOVAGOLD’s Board.
