About the Beauce Placer Gold Project

The property is located in the municipality of Saint-Simon-les-Mines in the Beauce region of southern Quebec. From 1959 to 1961, the Beauce Placer Mining Company, using a dragline and a floating Yuba dredge, mined 56,000 oz of gold from an area representing less than 20% the Rang Chaussegros placer channel. Sedimentological observations and characteristics of the gold grains extracted from the property suggest a close proximity to a bedrock source. An Induced Polarization (IP) survey revealed a strong conductive anomaly (+60 msec) of the bedrock below the auriferous basal till. This anomaly could correspond to a bedrock source for the gold. Having already obtained all its permits to start operations, the Corporation is in advance discussions with financiers regarding funding options for its mining activities.
