Contact Gold is a gold exploration company focused on leveraging its properties, people, technology and capital to make district scale gold discoveries in Nevada. Contact Gold's extensive land holdings are primarily on the prolific Carlin trend, as well as the Independence and Northern Nevada Rift gold trends which host numerous world class gold mines and deposits. Contact Gold’s land position is comprised of 28,082 hectares (281 square kilometres) of target rich mineral tenure which hosts numerous known gold occurrences, ranging from early- to advanced-exploration and resource definition stage.
Contact Gold is currently focused on its 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 adjacent to 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 Company's properties host numerous Carlin type gold occurrences and targets that have been the target of intermittent exploration campaigns including approximately 200 drill holes and historic resource estimates.
Contact Gold 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.
