Region - Exploration
IAMGOLD has an Exploration Office in Georgetown, the capital of Guyana, servicing the Guiana Shield, with a staff of approximately 25 people.
IAMGOLD’s flagship Rosebel mine is located within the Guiana Shield in Suriname. In 2008, a 3-year evaluation program was initiated on the 61,925 hectares of mineral lands held by the Company around the 17,000-hectare Rosebel mine concession. Several new targets for further exploration were identified and added to the list of quality targets that are being investigated.
Elsewhere in Suriname, IAMGOLD holds 208,000 hectares of mineral concessions that have potential for stand-alone gold projects.
