From inception, our mandate has been to stake and acquire highly prospective projects with a focus on large scale, district size projects. With a significant footprint in Newfoundland and Ontario, New Found Gold Corp. is able to explore in mining friendly jurisdictions, with an emphasis on gold. We look for projects with historic work, drill date and/or a defined resource, as well as projects with low acquisition and holding costs. Our strategy is to find the next major gold belt.
