About Perpetua Resources

Perpetua Favicon

WELCOME TO OUR NEXT CHAPTER

We are proud to announce Midas Gold has changed its name to Perpetua Resources to better reflect who we are and what we do.

The name Perpetua Resources was inspired by our state seal, which displays lady justice and a miner surrounded by a bounty of resources. Above them reads Esto Perpetua, translated to mean Let it be Perpetual. To our team, the seal is a mandate to be stewards of Idaho’s vast resources. We know through balance and care our resources can sustain and Idaho can prosper.

The name Perpetua Resources better reflects our plan to restore an abandoned mining site, to responsibly develop the critical resources our country needs for a more secure and sustainable future and to be guided by a commitment to Idaho’s resources and people.

While our name is new, our people, our commitments and our project remain unchanged.

In her free time, Alyssa can be found horseback riding, snowboarding, reading, paddle boarding or on the water at her family’s cabin on Warm Lake.

Tracey has over 25 years of experience in finance. She is an essential member of the Perpetua Resources team as she is responsible for handling the daily duties of the Donnelley office. She provides HR assistance to the HR manager and administrative support to the rest of the company. Mining is woven within the history of Tracey’s family and she loves that Perpetua allows her the opportunity to continue her family’s legacy. She is also proud to work for a mining company that is setting the standard for future mining projects through their strong stance on reclamation before, during and after mining -- leaving the site in a better position than how they found it.
