pure gold. building a mine.
With the project now fully funded, our first gold pour at the Madsen Red Lake Mine is planned for late 20201. With the commencement of production, Pure Gold Mining will be joining the small, elite group of well-funded gold producers with high-grade, multi-million ounce deposits located in prolific, mining-friendly jurisdictions such as Red Lake, Ontario, Canada.
The high-grade/low-capex nature of the Madsen mine reflects in its leverage to gold price: at US$1,400/oz. the After-Tax NPV5% is C$326mm with an After-Tax IRR of 45%2.
As we commence construction, our project is perfectly timed to benefit from a rising gold market, and looks set to generate well over C$800 million in cumulative pre-tax cash flow with gold currently near C$2,000 per ounce.3
Pure Gold is the only Operator in the Red Lake camp that has plans to start a mine with a new deposit in 2020.
Over 30% of our share float is held by four, key strategic investors4 that have distinguished themselves in founding and operating multi-billion dollar gold mining companies. Eric Sprott and Rob McEwen built multi-billion dollar companies Kirkland Lake Gold and Goldcorp, respectively, through the discovery of new, high-grade multi-million ounce deposits at the historical Fosterville, Macassa and Red Lake mines. Our other two strategic investors, Newmont Goldcorp and AngloGold Ashanti, rate at the top as global leaders in gold production.
The Madsen Red Lake Gold Mine has historical production of 2.6 million ounces of gold and a current indicated resource of 2,063,000 ounces gold at 8.9 g/t gold (in 7.2 million tonnes), an inferred resource of 467,000 ounces gold at 7.7 g/t gold (in 1.9 million tonnes)2, and benefits from existing infrastructure including a mill and tailings facility, paved highway access, and access to power, water and experienced labour. The recently released feasibility study for the Madsen Red Lake Gold Mine outlines an 800 tonne per day underground mining operation with a 12 year mine life, Probable Mineral Reserves of one million ounces of gold grading 9 g/t in 3.5 million tonnes, and a low initial capital cost of C$95 million (US$71 million), putting the Madsen Red Lake Gold Mine firmly on the path to becoming Canada’s next iconic gold producer.1
The Madsen deposit has the same geological setting as the other mines in the Red Lake camp that have collectively produced over 29 million ounces of gold. It is the highest grade underground development-stage deposit in Canada; in production, its grade will be higher than 92% of mines in production globally.5
With clear exploration upside as demonstrated by the near surface discoveries at Wedge, Fork and Russet South as well as down plunge along the 5+ kilometre gold system, the Company will continue to pursue a growth strategy, with exploration drilling on the property ongoing and expected to continue through the balance of the year.
The Madsen Red Lake Mine is a multi-generational asset. With historical production of 2.6 million ounces of gold, a current indicated resource of 2.1 million ounces at 8.9 g/t gold (in 7.2 million tonnes), and an inferred resource of 467,000 ounces gold at 7.7 g/t gold (in 1.9 million tonnes), we are committed to finding the next five million ounces3. No other Operator in the camp has plans to build a new mine in 2020. The Madsen Red Lake Mine is quite simply the heart and soul of Red Lake and represents the future of this prolific gold district.
pure oxygen. pure talent.
Pure Gold’s management has deep roots in Red Lake – and a rich and intimate knowledge of the geology acquired during their years of mining and exploring in the area.
As a company founded by , Pure Gold Mining shares the “DNA” of the family of companies: the company is built around a data-rich, tier-1 deposit in a tier-1 jurisdiction with board, management and technical teams that have a track record of success from early gold exploration through to production. The Madsen Gold Project will be Oxygen's third mine to go into production in 4 years.
pure gold is a true growth company.
Our mandate is pure and simple. To dream big. To colour outside the lines. To use creativity and smart science to unlock the true potential of the Madsen Red Lake Mine, located in Red Lake, Ontario. In advancing the Madsen Red Lake Mine to production, we are leading the Red Lake camp to become Canada’s next iconic gold company.
Pure Gold. Dream Big.
More than 29 million ounces of high grade gold have been mined in the legendary Red Lake district of northwestern Ontario, making this one of the largest gold producing districts in Canada.
In a world of low margin ounces from increasingly unpredictable jurisdictions, this district continues to produce some of the highest grade and highest margin gold ounces in the world.
That’s why Pure Gold is 100% focused, and on track, to becoming Canada’s next high-grade gold producer.
