Doyon Thanks Taiga Mining Company for Contribution to Alaska Excel
Taiga Mining Company, Inc (Taiga) is currently conducting mineral exploration on Doyon lands. These projects have provided local, seasonal employment for shareholders for a variety of positions in drilling and other support fields.
Doyon would like to thank Taiga for its contribution to Alaska Excel; a non-profit that provides unique educational opportunities for rural Alaska students. This donation will directly benefit Doyon shareholders and will allow our students to explore careers beginning in the 7th grade up until after high school graduation. Students can learn more about careers relevant to their regions, including jobs in health care, construction, heavy equipment operating, aviation, culinary arts, maritime, and more.
“Taiga Mining Company has recently collaborated with our Lands & Natural Resources Department to explore for placer potential on Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act lands across the region. This has been a collaborative and meaningful relationship with the potential to sustainably develop and provide local employment in our rural communities,” said Tanya Kaquatosh, Senior Vice President of Administration.
The contributions will be utilized for programs directly benefiting the Doyon shareholders of partner school districts including Yukon Koyukuk School District.
