Fire River Gold Corp. is Alaska's newest gold producer, with a projected 50,000 ounces per year of gold to be produced on its wholly owned Nixon Fork Gold Mine located in the resource rich Tintina Gold Belt.
Operations started in July 2011, with a near term production target of 30,000 oz/Au by end of year 2012, projecting an increase to 40,000 oz/Au per year in 2013, ramping up to a projected 50,000 ounces in 2014. This year-round mine program is producing both concentrate and doré bars. Fire River Gold is anticipating it will be replenishing what is mined on an annual basis by further drilling exploration targets on surface and underground. The Company has a stable platform for growth due to its talented and knowledgeable management team and Board of Directors who have the experience to execute on Fire River Gold's strategy. The Nixon Fork Mine is a past producing mine with a high grade production history, and a low capital requirement due to pre-existing infrastructure. The Nixon Fork Mine is operated by Mystery Creek Resources, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fire River Gold Corp. which is based in Anchorage, Alaska.
