ABOUT PURE GOLD
Pure Gold is a TSX.V listed Canadian focused gold developer.  A recent feasibility study released by the Company outlines a long life high margin mine, with low initial capital requirements and a fast timeline to production. In addition, specific exploration targets and satellite resources not considered in the feasibility study suggest an opportunity for near-term growth to potentially further enhance the economics of the project. 

Our mandate is pure and simple. To dream big. To colour outside the lines. To use smart science and creativity to unlock the Madsen Gold Project in Red Lake, Ontario. And become Canada’s next iconic gold company.
