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 and five one-million-plus-ounce gold deposits. These include one of the world’s highest-grade gold mines, the Hishikari Mine on Kyushu Island, which has been in production since 1985 and continues to produce more than 200,000 ounces of gold per year with an average grade of 40 g/t gold.

Japan Gold has lodged 80 prospecting rights license applications throughout northern Japan, for a combined area of 27,153 hectares over eight project areas. Four of the project areas (38 applications in northern Hokkaido) target high-grade epithermal gold deposits. The other four project areas (42 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 planning a substantial exploration program, with the objective of rapidly advancing the projects and unlocking the potential of Japan’s mineral resources.
