Rua Gold: An Emerging Gold Explorer in New Zealand’s Historical Goldfields

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Rua Gold (CSE:RUA,OTC:NZAUF,WKN:A4010V) focuses on the Hauraki Goldfield and Reefton Goldfield – two prolific, historic gold-producing regions in New Zealand boasting previous high-grade gold production. New Zealand is a tier 1 mining jurisdiction with highly prospective geology, and a skilled workforce. The new government of New Zealand has committed to promoting economic growth through mining- and business-friendly policies, such as the Fast Track Approval Bill, which proposes quicker approval timelines for a range of projects, including mining.

New Zealand has a rich history of gold production from orogenic deposits (+9 Moz), epithermal sources (+15 Moz), and alluvial deposits (+22 Moz). The country has low sovereign risk with no corruption, making it an attractive destination for mining investment.

Rua Gold has launched a fully funded exploration program at its properties which includes a 2,500-meter diamond drill program focused on the Pactolus prospect at Reefton Goldfield. Pactolus has returned assays for three of six holes drilled on the system, with hole DD_PAC_035 intersecting 2 meters @ 5.13 grams per ton (g/t) gold. Additional work is required to accurately model this zone’s geometry before proceeding with further drilling at this prospect. Consequently, the company anticipates redirecting its focus towards the previously productive areas in Reefton in the near future, which includes the Murray Creek, Crushington, Capleston and Caledonian historic districts. These historic mines collectively produced ~700 koz at 25.2 g/t within a radius of ~20 kms.
