Agnico Eagle's Hope Bay Operation is located in the Kitikmeot region of Nunavut, approximately 685 km northeast of Yellowknife, 650 Km northwest of Meadowbank Complex and 125 km southwest of Cambridge Bay.

The acquisition of TMAC Resources by Agnico Eagle was officially completed on February 2, 2021. The property and operations are remote but not isolated, serviced by both a port and airstrip.
