PureGold is a Canadian gold mining company, located in the very heart of Red Lake, Canada.
Red Lake is the world-famous high-grade gold district which has already produced more than 30 million ounces of gold, valued at over USD $50 billion in today’s prices.3
Little wonder Red Lake is called the high-grade gold capital of the world.
Our Mandate. Our mandate is pure and simple. To dream big. To colour outside the lines. To use smart science and disciplined creativity to exponentially increase the size and scale of our high-grade gold assets along PureGold’s 100%-owned property – historically the second-largest gold-producing property in the Red Lake District.
Our Objective. Our objective is also pure and simple. To develop a highly-profitable multi-generational growth company in the world-class gold mining district of Red Lake.
Our Phased Growth Strategy. With our 100%-owned, fully-constructed operating PureGold Mine, a multi-million-ounce gold endowment, and significant exploration upside, our value-maximizing strategy is to pursue operational excellence today, while investing in systematic exploration and phased expansions to fuel discovery and growth for the future.
Our Long-Term Vision. Red Lake gold systems have deep roots. Our aggressive exploration program is designed to generate exponential growth in the size and scale of our multi-million-ounce gold asset over time, by systematically drilling beneath and adjacent to our existing reserves. We expect to be mining here for a long time.
Our Discovery and Growth Engine
PureGold has defined a 2.1-million-ounce Indicated Resource, and a 0.5-million-ounce Inferred Resource at the PureGold Mine. Mineral resources are inclusive of Probable Mineral Reserves of 1 million ounces of gold grading 9 g/t. 1,6
We believe this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Data from more than 1.3 million metres of drilling has now delineated a 7-kilometre-long by half-a-kilometre-wide Gold Corridor on our property. This Corridor has a similar geological environment, as the Red Lake Mine Complex right next door – a mine complex which has already produced over 25 million ounces of gold.8
Our aggressive and highly-successful exploration and expansion drilling program continues to make new discoveries – discoveries which extend the scale and confirm the continuity of this gold system along our Gold Corridor. Discoveries of new near-surface zones with mineral resources that are not currently included in our feasibility study or mine plan. Discoveries that remain open along strike and at depth for expansion. Discoveries with mineral resources made over 3 kilometres south of the PureGold mine.
It’s like opening the door to Canada’s Fort Knox.
We believe we have barely scratched the surface.
To which we say, dream no small dreams.
We are in good company.
PureGold’s largest shareholders include global gold leaders and visionaries – Eric Sprott, the world-renowned gold visionary and investor, and The world’s third-largest gold producer, AngloGold Ashanti.5
Our leadership and management teams have deep roots and experience in the geology of the Red Lake gold district, and direct hands-on experience from years of on-site exploring, mining, and producing high-grade gold in this area.
As owners, leaders, mine builders, and operators with extensive experience on most continents, we believe that we are the next chapter in the evolution of Red Lake. That we will achieve exponential transformative growth, in both size and scale, of our gold asset. Because we believe that there’s significantly more high-grade gold waiting to be discovered, right here, in Canada’s Red Lake.
Dream no small dreams.
Words to live by.
At PureGold, responsible mining is not an oxymoron. It is both a duty and a commitment.
We are a principled and ethical company, trying our best to be good neighbours, fully committed to our people, our community, and the environment.
Yes, we are passionate about gold and discovery.
Yes, we are in pursuit of profit for our shareholders.
But these motivations run parallel with our duty and responsibility to our People (safety, training, culture, good salaries and benefits for over 300 workers), our Community (agreements with First Nations, strong sustainable economic benefits, and community development), and the Environment (meeting and/or exceeding modern environmental and engineering standards, protection of wildlife, lands, and waters, and progressive closure and reclamation of surface disturbances – including for mining sites conducted by previous operators).
