All the Nevada projects are exploration stage properties wholly-owned by AngloGold Ashanti. North Bullfrog and Mother Lode were acquired through acquisition of Corvus Gold in January 2022. Sterling, which includes the Crown Block deposits of SNA, Secret Pass and Daisy, was acquired through acquisition of Coeur Sterling in November 2022. The addition of the North Bullfrog, Mother Lode and Sterling projects into the AngloGold Ashanti North America portfolio, together with the Silicon project and other exploration targets, provides the opportunity to develop a world-class operational cluster within the Beatty district in Nevada.

The Silicon project is located approximately 12km east of the town of Beatty in Nye County, Nevada, USA. The North Bullfrog project is located approximately 14km northwest of the town of Beatty. The Mother Lode project is located 10km east of the town of Beatty. The Secret Pass and Daisy deposits of the Sterling project are located 6km east of the town of Beatty and the remaining deposits of the Sterling project are located 14km southeast of the town of Beatty.

The North Bullfrog project is the most advanced of AngloGold Ashanti’s exploration properties within the Beatty district, an area with a long history of gold mining. A first-time Mineral Resource at Silicon was declared in 2021. North Bullfrog, Mother Lode and Sterling have declared Mineral Resource for the first time in 2022 with a combined total of 4.2Moz.

The North Bullfrog project is currently progressing through a feasibility study whilst the Silicon project is at prefeasibility study stage. As at 31 December 2022, the gold Mineral Resource for the United States was 8.4Moz.
