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 produced over 7 million ounces of gold between 1985-2017 at an average grade of 30-40 g/t Au and still produces today.
Japan Gold has 210 prospecting rights applications accepted over 17 projects in Japan totaling 69,505 hectares. To date, 32 of these applications have been granted as Prospecting Rights thus demonstrating Japan Gold's ability to navigate the Japanese permitting process. Thirteen of the projects target high-grade epithermal gold deposits. The other four projects target areas of gold-bearing advanced argillic alteration lithocaps, which could indicate the presence of porphyry mineralization. The Company has been granted its first drilling permit and a scout drilling program has commenced at the Ikutahara Project.
Japan Gold’s executive team and board of directors have decades of technical and business experience and a proven track record of growing companies from grassroots exploration through to production. The Company's team includes geologists and advisors with experience exploring and operating in Japan.
