Guinness Exploration is aggressively exploring for gold in one of the most prolific mining regions in the world, the Tintina Gold Belt.
Home to several of the world's largest and most profitable gold mines, the Tintina Gold Belt has become a hotbed of activity in recent years, as major mining companies move to lock-up prospective projects in a gold region with historic/present deposits in excess of 50 million ounces.
Guinness Exploration has acquired an advanced gold project (the Nantawa Project) covering more than 8,000 acres in a zone with significant recent production and extensive drill data. Management of Guinness Exploration considers the Nantawa Project to have the potential to host a world-class discovery, and is rapidly moving forward to advance the project through extensive data analysis, fieldwork, and drilling.
