Beauce Gold Property


The Beauce Gold Fields project is a unique, historically prolific gold property located in the municipality of Saint-Simon-les-Mines in the Beauce region of Southern Quebec. Comprising of a block of 152 claims 100% owned by Beauce Gold Fields, the project area hosts a six kilometre long unconsolidated gold-bearing sedimentary unit (a lower saprolite and an upper brown diamictite). The gold in saprolite indicates a close proximity to a bedrock source of gold along with the recent discovery of a fault underneath the historical gold placers, provides possible further exploration discoveries. The property was also hosts numerous historical placer gold mines that were active from 1860s to the 1960s.
