New to the Investing News Network – October 2020
Over a decade ago, a team of Mongolian and international geologists working with Erdene Resource Development (TSX:ERD,OTC Pink:ERDCF) in unexplored areas of the Gobi Desert discovered very high grade, surface gold prospects. This area has evolved into a new gold district in Southwestern Mongolia with two surface deposits and multiple early stage prospects. The company is focused on rapidly advancing one of those deposits, the high-grade, open-pit Bayan Khundii gold project to production. This initial development and the associated cashflow will form a foundation for growth as the exploration team continues expanding high-grade gold resources on adjacent prospects. The company has interests in three exploration licenses and three mining licenses covering 17,861 hectares. Erdene is the longest standing foreign investor and most successful gold explorer in Mongolia with an experienced team and Board of Directors, a long-term focused, loyal shareholder base and a strong social license.
