Further, the Company has received an update from management of Pilar Gold Inc. (“Pilar Gold”) on its drill program at the Sertão mine. Valterra has a $2.4M equity investment in Pilar Gold following the sale to Pilar Gold of its Brazilian assets, including Poconé Mining Mineração Ltda (“PMM”), which held a 100% interest in the Lima gold property and a binding agreement to purchase a 100% interest in the Livramento gold property, both located in the Poconé Mining District, Brazil.
About Pilar Gold Inc. Pilar Gold Inc. is a Canadian gold mining company focused entirely on Brazil. On 16 April 2021, Pilar Gold acquired the Pilar gold mine in the central Brazilian state of Goiás from Equinox Gold Corp. With production of 30,923 ounces in 2020 and significant growth potential, the Pilar gold mine is the flagship asset for Pilar Gold and a strong foundation for an emerging Brazil-focused gold company.
Pilar Gold management states, “Recent results from our Sertão drill program are very encouraging, strengthening our theory on the continuation of the high-grade ore body running west from the original Troy Resources open pit.”
PMM will form the cornerstone for Pilar Gold’s operations in the prolific Poconé gold belt in the State of Mato Grosso, Brazil. With decades of hands-on experience in the Poconé region, Pilar Gold’s management team intends to develop PMM into a successful regional gold producer.
Pilar Gold Inc. is a private Canadian company with plans to seek a public listing.(1)
