Avidian Gold Corp.
Avidian brings a disciplined and veteran team of project managers together with a regional scale advanced stage gold-copper exploration portfolio in Alaska. Avidian's Golden Zone project also hosts a NI 43-101 Indicated gold resource of 267,400 ounces (4,187,000 tonnes at 1.99 g/t Au) plus an Inferred gold resource of 35,900 ounces (1,353,000 tonnes at 0.83 g/t Au). Additional projects include the Amanita gold property which is adjacent to Kinross Gold's Fort Knox gold mine in Alaska and the Jungo gold/copper property in Nevada.
Avidian is the majority owner of High Tide Resources, a private company with an option on the Labrador West iron ore property and owns the base metal Strickland Property and the Black Raven gold property, all located in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
Avidian is focused on and committed to the development of advanced stage mineral projects throughout first world mining friendly jurisdictions using industry best practices combined with a strong social license from local communities.
Avidian has three advanced gold properties, the Golden Zone and Amanita properties, located in south–central Alaska, and the Jungo property located in Nevada, each having the potential to host a large gold deposit of world class stature.
The Golden Zone and Amanita properties lie within the prolific Tintina Gold Belt that hosts multi-million ounce gold deposits such as Donlin Creek, Fort Knox and Dublin Gulch. The Golden Zone and Amanita properties are close to infrastructure (both accessible by road with nearby rail and power), which is unusual in Alaska.

On September 30, 2020, Avidian Gold Corp. has provided an exploration update for its Amanita, Amanita NE and Golden Zone properties in Alaska and its Jungo property in Nevada.
Steve Roebuck, president of Avidian Gold, states: "Our exploration programs were delayed this year as a result of the numerous challenges brought upon by COVID-19. We are however pleased to confirm that we are in the process of advancing all properties with our main focus on Amanita. Currently we are drilling our seventh hole at Amanita and anticipate drilling three to five more holes before the end of this phase of the program. While we had hoped to continue drilling at Golden Zone these plans have been postponed as a result of the delay in initiating our 2020 exploration program. Regardless, the acquisition of additional ground containing identified targets confirms the district play of the Golden Zone property. We can also confirm that drill-ready targets have been identified in the Breccia pipe resource area and we are anxious to continue our expansion of the known resource as soon as feasible."
On September 3, 2020, Avidian Gold Corp. announced that its board of directors has approved the grant of 3.25 million stock options to certain members of management, directors and consultants of the Company. The options are exercisable into common shares of the Company at an exercise price of 28 cents per share and have a five-year term to maturity.
