NGE is an exploration company focused on gold in Nevada. NGE is led by an experienced and historically successful exploration management team. NGE has developed a proprietary groundwater chemistry exploration technology to explore for gold in Nevada’s covered basins where traditional exploration techniques are challenged. NGE has completed the first ever comprehensive survey of Nevada’s groundwater focused on discovering new gold deposits, and has demonstrated that Nevada’s gold deposits exhibit recognizable and measurable groundwater chemistry signatures. NGE has used its proprietary technology to identify, acquire, and develop 11 new exploration properties exhibiting groundwater chemistry similar to known gold mines, and NGE is applying a standardized, staged exploration program at each property.

NGE has completed Phase I drilling at three of its properties and has discovered new, previously unknown, geochemically anomalous, hydrothermal systems at all three. With these results, NGE has demonstrated that its groundwater chemistry exploration program can identify new, high quality exploration targets in previously unexplored areas. Now that NGE has established groundwater chemistry as a valuable and important exploration technology, NGE plans to focus on matching its drill-ready properties with exploration partners. By leaving the later, more-traditional exploration stages for our partners, NGE plans to focus on leveraging its investment in groundwater chemistry exploration technology to identify and advance more new exploration properties, and to establish itself as a source of high quality, drill ready exploration properties for the mining industry.
