Big Hill Deposit, Maine, USA (100%)Read More
Racey Gold Deposit, Oregon, USA (100%)Read More
The Racey property hosts a porphyry-style gold deposit that has been the focus of over six significant exploration programs from 1980-1996 with over 190 holes drilled in the main mineralized zone. Previous drilling by Billiton Minerals USA inferred geologic resources of over 776,000 ounces to a depth of 150 metres. Subsequent exploration and drilling inferred a larger resource and the continuation of mineralization to depth.
Central Gold Deposit, California, USA (100%)Read More
The Central property hosts a mesothermal gold deposit in the Mother Lode district in Northern California. Previous Exploration by Inca Mining and Homestake led to a resource base of 511,000 ounces through the drilling of 79 holes.
Victorine Gold Mine, Nevada, USA (100%)Read More
The Victorine is a past producing high-grade mine in Lander County Nevada. It has produced over 100,000 ounces of gold since 1862. The last mining activity occurred on the property in 1989 by Nevada GoldFields. In 1993, a mineable ore estimate confirmed a remaining Proven/Probable reserve of 168,000 ounces.
Hidden Lake Gold Mine, Montana, USA (100%)Read More
The Hidden Lake Mine is a past producing high-grade gold mine near Anaconda, Montana.

Suni Iron Project, Ontario, Canada (100%)Read More
The Suni project is an advanced stage magnetite iron ore deposit located near Kowkash, Ontario, only 5 Km from the CN Railway. Previous exploration by Can-Fer Mines and Algoma Steel included over 50,000 feet of diamond drilling and defined a resource of over 280,000,000 tonnes grading 28% Fe.
Big Hill Silver/Zinc Deposit, Maine, USA (100%)Read More
Big Hill is a porphyry style Silver/Zinc deposit that was the subject of four significant exploration programs between 1962 and 1984 culiminating in the delineation of a 24,400,000 tonne ore body grading 43.89 g/t Silver and 1.76% combined Zinc/Lead in the Indicated categories and an additional 150,000,000 tonnes of similar material in the inferred category.
