OCTOBER 17 - 18, 2019

Nova Scotia is in the middle of a gold rush. One gold mine opened in 2017, four are in the permitting process and there is a lot of exploration taking place.

Come learn about gold investment and exploration opportunities at the Nova Scotia Gold Show:

When: Thursday and Friday, October 17-18, 2019

Where: Alt Hotel, Halifax Airport

The agenda is:

  • A tour of Atlantic Gold’s Touquoy gold mine will take place on Thursday, October 17. Due to space limitations, the tour is for investors only. The successful opening of Touquoy in 2017 triggered a rush of staking and gold exploration in Nova Scotia.
  • October 18 will feature the following at the Alt Hotel at Halifax airport:
    • A series of speakers discussing gold projects, the province’s geology for gold and gold markets.
    • A “core shack” room where companies will display core samples and other materials about their projects.
    • A networking reception.
    • Information about various prospector projects.

The Nova Scotia Gold Show is a private event but free to attend for industry and government representatives. Advanced registration is required. Please contact Sarah at to register.

Featured speakers on October 18 include:

  • Northern Shield Resources, while better known for generating high-quality Ni-Cu-PGE targets, recognized a unique opportunity that came its way in 2017. This led to the discovery of a large, low sulphidation epithermal gold system in Nova Scotia, the first of its kind in the province. Such systems are highly prized for their potential to host “bonanza” gold and silver grades (
  • Transition Metals whose Highland Gold project is a large regional stream sediment gold anomaly in the Cape Breton Highlands. It has similar geology to deposits in the Carolinas, Newfoundland and the British Islands. Work by Transition identifies potential for high sulphidation gold systems on the property (
  • Osprey Gold which has a portfolio of highly prospective gold assets in Nova Scotia’s most prolific mining district. The Company’s flagship project is Goldenville, located in the historical mining district of the same name – one of eastern Canada’s most significant gold belts.
  • MegumaGold Corp, a Canadian junior gold exploration company focused on value-oriented exploration within the emerging gold camp of the Meguma formation in Nova Scotia. It has assembled a strategically-positioned tenure of 180,754 hectares within the Meguma Gold District.
  • SLAM Exploration Ltd. (SXL on TSXV) recently announced its return to Nova Scotia with an option on the Mount Uniacke gold property. According to the “Plan and Section, Mount Uniacke Gold District” by E.R. Faribault, the property is underlain by 145 vertical gold-bearing leads and slate belts that occupy a 600 m thick section on the south limb of the Uniacke antiform.
  • AYARCO Gold Corp., whose property is in the historic Kemptville Gold District in southwest Nova Scotia which produced at least 2000 troy ounces of gold between 1881 and 1915. Past drilling has revealed zones of gold mineralization within altered sericitic schist assaying as high as ~0.30 oz /t Au over 5m in a drill hole near the main Kempt workings.
  • Dan Kontak, Professor at Laurentian University, discussing Nova Scotia’s geology for gold.
  • Alastair McIntyre, President of Malagash Metals and Mining, discussing what’s behind the gold price and how this impacts the companies that produce it.
  • The Department of Energy and Mines discussing ongoing research on new gold / geoscience models.
  • Dr. Jacob Hanley, discussing Saint Mary’s University’s ore deposits laboratory and its work on mineralogical, metallurgical and geochemical studies of mineral deposits.
  • Felix Lee, President, Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada. The State of Mineral Finance.
  • David Stein, President and Managing Director, Aerecura Capital. A Tale of Two Markets: Financing Junior Mining in 2019 and Beyond. The state of the junior mining market in Canada; challenges and opportunities; trends in financing and how they may affect junior mining companies.
