The first foreign mineral exploration company to focus solely on Japan
Japan Gold is the first foreign mineral exploration company to focus solely on Japan. The Tertiary volcanic arc terrains of Japan host 76 known past producing gold mines, including five one-million-plus-ounce gold deposits. Still producing today, is one of the world’s highest-grade gold mines, the Hishikari Mine on Japan's Kyushu Island. The Hishikari Mine has produced over 7 million ounces of gold from 1985-2016 at over 200,000 ounces per year with grades averaging 40 g/t gold.
Japan Gold has lodged 148 prospecting rights license applications throughout northern Japan, nine of which have been converted to Prospecting Rights, for a combined area of 49,150 hectares over ten project areas. Six of the project areas (120 applications in Hokkaido) target high-grade epithermal gold deposits. The other four project areas (28 applications in Hokkaido and northern Honshu) target prospective epithermal gold deposits and areas of gold-bearing advanced argillic alteration lithocaps, which could indicate the presence of a porphyry mineral environment.
Japan Gold’s executive team and Board of Directors bring decades of technical and business experience to the Company, with a proven track record of growing resource companies from grassroots exploration through to production. The Company completed a C$7 million financing in September 2016 and is executing a substantial exploration program, including plans to commence drilling in 2017, with the objective of rapidly advancing the projects and unlocking the potential of Japan’s mineral resource.
