BeMetals is a well-financed precious and base metals exploration and development company with wholly owned gold projects in Japan and an option agreement to acquire interest in a copper project in Zambia. In 2021, BeMetals expanded its exposure into the gold sector through the acquisition of the Kazan Gold Project in Japan. In connection with the Company’s expansion into Japan, B2Gold Corp. (“B2Gold”) has become a strategic investor and currently holds approximately 19% of BeMetals’ outstanding shares.
The Company continues to advance its high-quality portfolio of mineral projects through well-managed technical programs with prudent deployment of funding from its strong cash position. In addition, the Company is evaluating other potential precious and base metal acquisition opportunities utilizing the Company’s extensive worldwide network, experience and track-record in the mining business. BeMetals intends to become a leading precious and base metals producer through the advancement of quality exploration, development and production stage projects.
BeMetals is also progressing its tier-one targeted, Pangeni Copper Exploration Project in the prolific Zambian Copperbelt with co-funding investor the Japanese state agency JOGMEC (“Japan Organization for Metals and Energy Security”)
Kazan Gold Project
The Kazan Gold Project is an expertly selected portfolio of gold properties, including the advanced exploration-stage Kato Project (Formerly known as Seta River Project) in Hokkaido. Kazan assembled this land position covering extensions and similar geological terrains known to have hosted numerous historical high-grade mines including, but not limited to, the currently operating Hishikari Gold Mine on Kyushu, which produced 7.9 million ounces of gold from 1985-2020 at an average grade of 30-40 grams per tonne gold.
Kazan has the rights to explore five project areas in Japan including the more advanced exploration stage Kato Project, Todoroki and Konomai Projects on Hokkaido, and the Tashiro and Hokusatu Projects on Kyushu.
