District Coffee
Ownership 100%
Type of Mine Open pit and heap leach

Acquired in 2016, Coffee is a high grade potential open pit and heap leach development project that could grow into a large district scale operation.

Located approximately 130 kilometres south of the City of Dawson, Yukon, the property is accessed by the Yukon River, helicopter and airplane. It includes a barge landing site, airstrip and camp that are connected by a 23-kilometre all-season road.

Coffee is a key part of our plan to increase our production by 20% by 2021.

We have been consulting with local First Nation and community groups, and submitted our Environmental Socioeconomic Assessment application in early 2017. We’re also planning upgrades to the site infrastructure and have begun initial studies as part of the permitting process.

Key development milestones

Environmental Socioeconomic Assessment – submitted in early 2017

Permitting and detailed engineering – expected completion in 2019

Investment committee decision – expected in third quarter 2019

Construction of plant and access road – 2019

Commercial production – expected in 2021


Coffee is a structurally hosted hydrothermal deposit in the under-explored Yukon-Alaska Tintina Gold District. Goldcorp’s land package, over 60,000 hectares, demonstrates potential for near mine discoveries. Mineralization is open along strike and at depth, and has the potential for the discovery of satellite deposits.

The goals of the exploration program at Coffee are:

  • upgrading a portion of the mineral resource to the measured classification
  • exploring a broad portfolio of near-surface, oxide gold targets to add resources
  • phase 1 drilling to test the sulphide mineralization and preliminary metallurgy to determine sulphide process path.
