Creation of Galore Creek Mining Corporation

The Galore Creek Mining Corporation was created in 2007 when Teck acquired a 50% interest in the Project from NovaGold. In 2018 Newmont acquired NovaGold’s stake in the Project creating the new Partnership between Teck and Newmont. Together our owner partners ensure that our operations and processes meet world-class standards in sustainable development. 

As one of Canada’s leading mining companies, Teck is committed to responsible mining and mineral development with major business units focused on copper, zinc, and steelmaking coal, as well as investments in energy assets.

Newmont is the world’s leading gold company as measured by assets, prospects and people. Newmont has actively operating mines in nine countries across the globe.


Galore Creek is committed to responsible resource development. We focus on health and safety and valuing people to build a strong foundation for the work we do. Our view of sustainability includes building strong relationships with communities and Indigenous Peoples, taking an industry-leading approach to water and environmental stewardship, and adapting to the physical impacts of climate change to build a resilient and safe project.

Our Sustainability Strategy sets long-term objectives to drive continuous improvement at all levels of the organization.

Health & Safety
We train and build awareness across all of the employees and contractors by promoting an active safety culture, holding safety as a core value, and remaining focused on ensuring that everyone goes home safe and healthy.
We work to attract, invest in, and retain employees to join us in the exciting work of advancing and developing the Galore Creek mine.
Communities & Indigenous
In our operations and through our relationships, we seek to advance reconciliation and provide opportunities to create lasting benefits and support community wellbeing.
Environmental Stewardship
We integrate environmental stewardship into Project development by designing environmental management systems that ensure consistent implementation and that are effective at protecting our environment.
Water Stewardship
Our approach to water stewardship is based on three pillars: protecting water quality, improving water management practices, and engaging collaboratively within our watersheds.
Climate Change
We are committed to actively pursue options for lowering emissions and understand and manage the incremental risks and opportunities from the physical impacts of climate change.

Project Update

Galore Creek is working to advance one of the world’s largest undeveloped copper-gold-silver deposits in NW British Columbia. We are currently undertaking an updated Prefeasibility Study, including ongoing environmental baseline studies, and optimization of Project design. Our team is committed to developing the Project at the highest standards in safety, environmental stewardship, and in close collaboration with Tahltan Nation and communities.
