The Company’s flagship property is the St-Simon-Les-Mines Gold project site of Canada’s first gold rush.
It hosts some of the largest historical placer gold mines in Eastern North America that were active from the 1860s to the 1960s. It produced some of the largest gold nuggets in Canadian mining history (50oz to 71oz).
The property holds a historical* placer gold deposit. The Company currently is exploring for a hard rock gold deposit as the source of the gold placers.
The project is located in Beauce, Quebec, Canada, known as one of the friendliest mining districts in the world.
Beauce is a historical and traditional region of Quebec located south of Quebec City. It corresponds approximately to the regional county municipalities of Beauce-Sartigan, Robert-Cliche, and La Nouvelle-Beauce, and its major communities are Saint-Georges, Sainte-Marie, Beauceville, Saint-Joseph-de-Beauce, and Saint-Victor.

Key Property Highlights
Since inception, we have added significant value through the acquisition of 6 real estate lots totaling 176 acres in St-Simon-Les-Mines, and we have made 152+ claims covering the historical Beauce placer goldfield.
Exploration by Beauce Gold Filed discovered a major fault line as the probable source of the placer gold channel.
- Eroded Fault Zone, is a likely a source of historical placer gold deposit
- Geophysics identified a major Fault line along strike the Placer gold channel
- Bedrock Gold at Fault Zone match Placer Gold from historical placer channel
- High potential drill targets zones along 6 km
Potential Placer Gold Mining Operation
- The property holds the largest historical placer gold deposit in eastern North America
- Many KMs of unmined placer channel
- Polygonally calculated Gold Exploration Target, for the entire historical placer channel ranging between 61,000 ounces (2,200,000 m3 @ 0.87g Au/m3) and 366,000 ounces* (2,200,000 m3 @ 5.22 g Au/m3).
- Successfully permitted for trial mining (Uragold 2013)
