“In 1998, at the bottom of the market, we saw an opportunity to buy the Detour Lake Mine and all the land around it for less then a dollar an ounce in ground. It had 1.4 million ounce resource and we bought it for a million dollars. We got Franco-Nevada to be our joint-venture partner. We envisioned it to be a big pit and as it got to be a development story, we found the right team and spun out the Detour project to Detour Gold. They built it to be the behemoth it is now.” States Ingrid Hibbard, President and CEO of Pelangio Exploration Inc. (TSXV: PX), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Peter Clausi at PDAC 2020.
Ingrid went on to say that Detour Gold has been acquired by Kirkland Lake Gold in which she has been appointed to the Board of Directors.
