Contact Gold’s extensive land holdings are on the prolific Carlin, Independence and Northern Nevada Rift gold trends which host numerous gold deposits and mines. Contact Gold’s land position comprises approximately 275 km2 of target-rich mineral tenure hosting numerous known gold occurrences, ranging from early- to advanced-exploration and resource definition stage (the “Contact Gold Properties”).
Contact Gold is focused on the Pony Creek, Dixie Flats and North Star properties which are located on the southern Carlin trend to the south of Newmont Mining’s Rain and Emigrant mines and flank Gold Standard Ventures’ Railroad-Pinion Project. This portion of the Carlin trend is widely considered to be the most underexplored area on the trend. The properties host Carlin type gold systems and numerous targets that have been the subject of intermittent exploration campaigns including approximately 200 drill holes and historic resource estimates.
Contact is well capitalized with a strong treasury to fund its exploration programs. Its shareholders include Waterton Global Resource Management, Goldcorp and several leading mining focused institutional investors.
