At Doyon, our mission is to continually enhance our position as a financially strong Native corporation in order to promote the economic and social well-being of our shareholders and future shareholders, to strengthen our Native way of life, and to protect and enhance our land and resources.

Doyon entered into a lease agreement with Wiseman Metals to undertake exploration for metals critical for transition to renewable energy, like copper and niobium, on the Wiseman East, Wiseman West, and Kaazene Projects.

The current work is low impact, early-stage exploration to assess the potential for an economic resource. Whilst early-stage work provides limited opportunities for landowner participation, this work is adding value to our assets and has the potential to unlock new economic opportunities for Doyon and our shareholders.

Doyon has been encouraged by the dedication of Wiseman Metals to their cultural heritage and community engagement programs. Further information in relation to Wiseman Metals 2023 programs are outlined below.
