About Glass Earth Gold
Glass Earth Gold is one of New Zealand's largest gold exploration companies, with its experienced geological team exploring promising gold prospects across a land position of approximately 10,000 square kilometres, in both the North and South Islands. The company held a net cash position of C$3.6 M at the end of Q4 2011 to fund exploration progress.
In the North Island, exploration efforts are focused on large epithermal gold systems in the Hauraki Region, host to the 10 million ounce Martha Hill mine, (Newmont Mining).
In the Hauraki Region Glass Earth Gold has identified and developed significant ground positions around Newmont Mining's currently active Martha gold operations at Waihi. The Newmont-Glass Earth Gold Waihi West JV (Newmont earning in) and Hauraki JV (65/35), including drilling at the WKP discovery, is being actively explored and managed by Newmont in concert with Glass Earth Gold.
Glass Earth Gold has also defined several significant epithermal gold targets to independently explore in this region including the Muirs Reef project. Containing a historical resource of 390,000 oz (non NI 43-101-compliant, at 1.5 g/t Au and cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au), further drilling is being undertaken to prove up the resource.
In the South Island, exploration efforts are focused on the Otago Region, home to OceanaGold's 7 million ounce Macraes Goldfield, for identification of mesothermal "Macraes-style" gold targets and revenue generation through placer (alluvial) gold production.
