Welcome to Carlin Gold Corporation

'Exploring Carlin-type Gold Properties in Nevada'

For an update on Barrick’s drilling program at Cortez Summit please see our corporate presentation and latest news releases.

Carlin Gold Corporation is a Vancouver-based exploration company focused on Carlin-type gold exploration in Nevada, where the company has three wholly-owned properties. Our corporate presentation can be viewed from and downloaded from this site, and the Nevada project summaries are also included.

In November 2016 the company closed a US$5 million exploration agreement and private placement financing with Barrick Gold Exploration on Cortez Summit, Carlin Gold’s flagship Nevada property – see the news release summarizing the agreement and a description of the Cortez Summit property on this site.  Cortez Summit is located in the Cortez gold trend, which exceeds 50 million ounces total gold produced, reserves and resources.  Barrick’s 2016 gold production at Cortez was 1.05 million ounces at all-in-sustaining costs (AISC) of $518/oz (Barrick Feb. 22, 2017 webcast).  Cortez Summit lies just 1 kilometer east of Barrick’s new Goldrush resource.  As of year-end 2016, the measured/indicated resource at Goldrush stood at 9.6 million oz grading 9.6 g/t Au, with an inferred resource of 1.9 million oz grading 8.2 g/t Au, for a total measured/indicated/inferred gold resource of 11.5 oz (Barrick 2016 Q4 report).    Limited drilling by Carlin Gold has encountered the same sedimentary host rock package that contains the Goldrush resource.  In 2016 Barrick announced some very encouraging drillhole results of up to 14.3m grading 31.8 g/t Au at the Fourmile target, located about 1 km north of the Goldrush resource and less than a kilometer from the west edge of the Cortez Summit property.   Fourmile mineralization is within the thermal halo of the Jurassic-age Mill Canyon stock, which opens up an exciting additional target within this halo at Cortez Summit.  We expect Barrick to initiate a drill program at Cortez Summit in Q2 2017.

The JDS property lies 12 miles southeast of Cortez Summit, 3 miles east of NuLegacy Gold’s Iceberg gold discovery.  The company’s first phase drilling has encountered favorable Carlin-type gold host rock stratigraphy. 

Carlin Gold’s Willow property in northeast Nevada is located in an active exploration and mining area highlighted by Newmont Mining’s Long Canyon mine located 80 kilometers southwest.  Willow is permitted for drilling, and Newmont has a large property position adjacent to the company’s claims. 

Carlin Gold is a fifty percent partner in the Carlin-Constantine Yukon joint venture which   controls 2,540 claims (513 km2) in the Selwyn Basin area of eastern Yukon.  Several strong gold and base metal targets have been identified in our holdings.
