Japan Gold has four projects (9,332 hectares) in Hokkaido and northern Honshu targeting areas of gold-bearing advanced argillic alteration lithocaps, which could indicate the presence of porphyry mineralization. The projects, Ponkutosan, Kobui, Minamikyabe and Eboshi, and are distributed along a clear north-south trend of lithocap mineralization.
The 9 prospecting rights applications (3,080 hectares) at the Eboshi Project in northern Honshu have been granted as Prospecting Rights
The remaining 19 prospecting rights applications (6,252 hectares) covering Ponkutosan, Kobui, Minamikayabe have been accepted for further government review. This reserves the ground for Japan Gold and allows for surface forms of exploration such as mapping, geochemical sampling and geophysics.
