Epithermal Gold Projects
(Unless otherwise indicated, all historical drilling, sampling and production data in this section of the website was found in the Metal Mining Agency of Japan database.)
Japan Gold has a total of 13 separate project areas prospective for high-grade epithermal gold mineralization. Ten of the projects are located on the island of Hokkaido, and three of the projects are located on the island of Kyushu. All of the prospecting rights applications covering these projects have been accepted, reserving the ground for Japan Gold and allowing for surface forms of exploration such as mapping, geochemical sampling and geophysics. To date, 23 of the 56 applications over the Ikutahara Project have been granted as Prospecting Rights authorizing the Company to commence more advanced exploration methods, including drilling. An initial Scout drilling program was completed at the Akebono prospect at the Ikutahara Project in December 2018. Japan Gold has generated other compelling drill targets, focussing on high grade epithermal veins in and around historic mines and workings, and will seek to rapidly progress these targets to the permitting phase so that they can be drill tested in 2018.
