Nexus Gold Corp is a Canadian-based junior exploration and development company. We concentrate our efforts in West Africa, primarily in Burkina Faso, a gold-rich country that features dozens of producing gold mines operated by some of the world’s biggest and most successful gold companies.
Burkina Faso is a mining friendly jurisdiction that has a relatively recent history in modern mining. It is one of the reasons we chose to work here. Another significant reason is that it’s a place where a smaller company like Nexus can find and work highly-prospective ground that hasn’t already been picked over and “drilled out” by others.
Another perhaps equally important reason we work in West Africa is we have the requisite experience there. Our management and geological teams bring significant experience and successful track records in Burkina Faso and neighboring countries in all aspects of exploration, including discovery, project development, mine operations, and much more.
Currently we have three projects in our Burkina portfolio, all them located along the Boromo-Greenstone belt, home to several notable deposits and mines.
Nexus Gold’s project portfolio
The Bouboulou concession is 38-sq km advanced stage exploration project with five distinct drill-tested gold zones contained within three 5km long gold trends. Previous operators include Roxgold, Boliden, and others. To date more than 60 holes have been drilled with several notable intercepts of both length and grade reported.
The 250-sq km Rakounga concession is contiguous to Bouboulou. Two of the three identified gold trends on Bouboulou appear to continue onto and through the Rakounga concession. In 2017 Nexus drill tested three zones located near active orpaillages (artisanal mining areas), confirming the presence of gold mineralization at all three. All 10 holes drilled at the Koaltenga zone intercepted gold.
The Company aims to establish a proximal relationship between the five identified zones at Bouboulou and the three zones located at the western edge of the Rakounga property. The area represented between all of the drill tested zones is approximately 16 kms and if continuity is established, represents a sizeable mineralized footprint.
The 178-sq km Niangouela concession is an earlier stage project that yielded some significant early results. Nexus was the first company to drill Niangouela. After identifying some high-grade samples from artisanal pits, 8 of the first 9 holes drilled intercepted significant gold intercepts.
