About the Beauce Placer Gold Project
The Beauce Placer Gold property is located in the municipality of Saint-Simon-les-Mines in the Beauce region of southern Quebec. From 1960 to 1962, the Beauce Placer Mining Company, using a dragline and a floating Yuba dredge, mined 56,000 oz of placer gold from an area representing less than 20% of the placer channel of the Rang Chaussegros. Studies of the placer gold suggest a close proximity to a bedrock source. The project is in its final planning stage for the start of mining activities.
