Nevada Exploration Inc.
NGE is an exploration company focused on gold in Nevada. NGE is led by an experienced management team that has been involved with the discovery of more than 30 million ounces of gold in Nevada.
NGE is aggressively applying the latest in “blind deposit” exploration technology to identify, acquire, and advance new exploration properties in Nevada’s highly prospective, yet underexplored covered basins. Specifically, NGE has developed proprietary hydrogeochemistry (groundwater chemistry) exploration technology to explore for gold in Nevada’s covered basins where traditional exploration techniques are challenged.
Using its industry leading exploration technology, NGE has assembled a portfolio of new gold projects, and with ownership interests covering more than 19,000 hectares (73 sq mi), is evolving as a major player in this world class jurisdiction. NGE’s business model is to leverage its properties and technology to create shareholder value through generative exploration, joint ventures, and other exploration partnerships.
