Community

WORKING TOGETHER

At Perpetua Resources, we recognize we are stronger when we work together. We want community voices to help shape the Stibnite Gold Project. It is one of the many reasons why our team members are so engaged in the local community and why our team regularly holds office hours and events (both virtual and in-person). It is also why we worked with cities and counties throughout the West Central Mountains to develop a community agreement. This agreement creates a collaborative environment for us to work together with local communities throughout the life of the project and provides a venue for cities and counties to address concerns and opportunities directly with the Perpetua Resources team.

If you want to learn more about the community agreement, please visit the Stibnite Advisory Council’s website.

Giving Back

We are actively engaged in our community. We feel it is important to give back by supporting local organizations and caring for the people and environment in our area.

Our employees also support the community through countless volunteer hours. From visiting classrooms to teach students about rocks to providing assistance on search and rescue efforts in the backcountry, our employees put the community first.

Perpetua Resources relies on community feedback and support. As we work on designing the Stibnite Gold Project, we know the most important voice is yours. We welcome everyone’s input. We have formed community advisory groups so we can get direct feedback from the community. To get involved, please contact us.

  • Great organization with great people working for it. I want to see sustainable fish habitat restored, historic tailings cleaned up and reprocessed, and surface and ground water cleaned up. Midas' project can do all these things. Chris Haynes

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR IDAHO

Our team has carefully designed the Stibnite Gold Project so it benefits the environment and our local community. Mining the remaining mineral deposits at Stibnite will finance the much-needed environmental restoration of the site, so it can finally receive the attention it deserves. Our project will also inject hundreds of millions of dollars into Idaho’s economy, bring hundreds of jobs into the state and contribute significant local and state tax revenue. We have been, and will remain, committed to hiring and purchasing locally. By looking to Idaho first, we have spent more than $78 million in the state since exploration of the Stibnite Gold Project area started in 2009.

Perpetua Resources is prepared to invest $1.1 billion in Idaho just to construct the Stibnite Gold Project. An economic impact study estimates we will spend a little more than $232 million each year we are in operation. The impacts of our investment would be felt far beyond Stibnite. We will generate millions of new revenues for Idaho through state and local taxes and our employees will help contribute additional money for schools and local governments through local property taxes.

The natural resource industry, and mining in particular, provides high paying jobs with solid benefits. In Idaho, more than 3,000 people are currently employed in mining and another 5,700 supporting jobs are generated indirectly. Over the 20-year life span of the Stibnite Gold Project, we will invest more than $1.1 billion and directly employ more than 500 people. As we plan for the future, we look forward to continuing to be a partner in growing Idaho’s economy.
