Corporate Vision

Pancontinental Gold aims to be a leading battery metals and gold explorer based on our:

  • Successful exploration management/technical team
  • Low-risk North American focus
  • Proven mining districts
  • Pro-mining local governments and communities
  • Excellent local infrastructure and labour
  • Emerging bull markets for Nickel (Ni), Cobalt (Co), Copper (Cu) and Gold (Au)

Why battery metals in Ontario?

  • Electric vehicle (EV) boom driving demand for key battery metals: cobalt, nickel, copper.
  • A laptop contains ~0.063 pounds of Co; an EV contains ~30 pounds of Co.
  • Global EV annual sales ~2 million units in 2016, ~20 million in 2020f, ~70 million in 2025f.
  • Cobalt global demand forecast to rise ~4,500% from now to 2030.
  • Half the world’s Co in DRC, a dangerous, unstable jurisdiction:
    • recently eliminated 10 year tax holiday for Co mines
    • recently increased government royalty from 2% to 10%
    • recently implemented 50% excess profits tax
    • recently announced plan for 60% increase in Co export tax
  • Ni-Cu mines produce Co as by-product. Canada hosts major Ni-Cu mining camps, i.e. Sudbury, Ontario.
  • Ontario’s Montcalm Gabbro Complex is highly prospective and underexplored.
  • Manitoba’s Lynn Lake Ni-Cu-CO mines (Sherritt) an excellent analogue for the Montcalm Gabbro Complex.

Why gold in the Carolinas?

  • The first ever gold rush in the United States began in South Carolina in the 1820s.
  • The Carolina Gold Belt, including our Jefferson Gold Project, are underexplored.
  • The nearby Haile gold mine, owned by OceanaGold, has 3.46moz reserves and 4.35moz resources, and AISC guidance of US$600-650/oz sold.
  • The Jefferson Gold Project is bounded on the west by the former Brewer gold mine, which mined 12 million tonnes of oxide ore in the 1990s, and contains an under-explored high sulfidation deposit.
  • Our team possesses extensive regional geological knowledge and exploration experience.
  • Exploration and mining is generally on private land and can be more commercially attractive than in the western states where most land is federally owned.
  • The Carolinas are mining and business friendly, as well as hosting an active industrial minerals mining base.
  • We believe the Carolinas are a prime location for a new gold rush in the United States.
