Banyan Gold is focused on advancing two Yukon gold properties, Aurmac and the Hyland Gold Project. Banyan’s project outside Mayo has three main target areas Banyan believes to have the potential to host five to seven million ounces of gold. Alongside their multi-million ounce gold resource, they have a management team with a track record of success.
Banyan’s primary asset, the AurMac Property is comprised of the Aurex and McQuesten properties, as well as claims staked and owned 100% by Banyan Gold, and adjacent to Victoria Gold’s Eagle Gold Mine, in Canada’s Yukon Territory. The AurMac Property has a 4 Million oz. Resource (updated May 2022) advancing towards a Tier 1 Asset. Major strategic shareholders include Franklin Gold and Precious Metals Fund, Osisko Development, and Victoria Gold Corporation. Banyan is focused on gold exploration projects that have the geological potential, size of land package and proximity to infrastructure that is advantageous for a mineral project to have potential to become a mine.
