TNR Gold: Shotgun Gold Project in Alaska Presentation.




 
 Never fight Central Banks - they have unlimited resources and can print all the money they want until the total breakdown in the system. The war on Deflation is on and ECB has unleashed its own QE with 1 Trillion Euro to be printed for a start. I would not bet on the end of the world, but would do definitely on Inflation. The desire to destroy the FIAT currencies by Central banks is almost unstoppable. Gold is surging in all currencies now and we are entering the new stage, when All FIAT currencies will depreciate against Gold. Nobody was interested in Gold projects with Gold sliding last few years, now it is time to look at the best ones, providing the scale for the new significant discoveries. 
  We had the major news for Alaska Gold mining industry from our neighbours last year - Donlin Gold is moving forward! NOVAGOLD and TNR Gold were developing Shotgun Gold project together and in 2010 our company has consolidated the project and now owns 100% of it. NOVAGOLD has received TNR Gold's shares and warrants. Greg Johnson - one of the founders of NOVAGOLD has joined TNR Gold board after our very impressive results from the drilling program in the Fall 2012. Please watch the video to find out his personal statement:

"The mineralization style observed at Shotgun Ridge bears a strong resemblance to the 40 million ounce deposit at the Donlin Gold project operated by Barrick and NovaGold," stated recently appointed director Greg Johnson, "The similar age and host intrusive rocks suggest that, with continued exploration, there is significant potential to locate larger volumes of mineralization in and around Shotgun Ridge."





  The chart above provides you with idea why we need more Gold deposits now. Even if Major Gold Miners are squeezed on margins and divesting the projects now - it is these industry's fundamentals which will drive this market forward. Falling gold prices are the best cure from the low Gold prices. Gold miners are mining the "Gold Dust" by the 90s standards.
  Number of discoveries is going down and will go down even more with Junior Miners struggling to get access to the capital now to develop their projects. Grades and sizes of discoveries are going down as well - easy stuff is all  already found or is located in not so friendly places. We have Peak Cheap Gold in place now, whatever the Gold market massaged by BIS will tell you.
  China's buying record amount of gold last couple of years will be the very strong confirmation of Gold monetary value and recent pick up in M&A activity provides very important signal for the bottom in this mining cycle:
"China continues its buying spree of copper assets all over the Globe: last month the huge Las Bambas copper project in Peru was bought by Minmetals Group for $5.85 B and now Guandong is bidding for PanAust. Reuters reports on the deal and you can notice how the activity in M&A by Chinese companies is picking up during the "soft market". It is the very important indication of the major bottom in the mining cycle: it is cheaper "to dig" for Copper and Gold on the Stock Exchanges now, when valuations of assets in the ground of listed companies are discounted by the depressed mining markets. "
  This is another reason why I personally came into the TNR Gold - Shotgun Gold project in Alaska. Gary Schellenberg and John Harrop - our VP of Explorations, have done the great job over the years exploring this project with Nova Gold and now we have 100% of it and Nova Gold has become TNR Gold's shareholder. After our drilling results in 2012 Greg Johnson the founder of Nova Gold has joined our Board and we have published the first resource estimation on the Shotgun Gold project last May.
  It was the first confirmation of my personal dream to develop the important Gold deposit and even if it is still the very early stage of project development, this dream is not limited in size by the resource model at Shotgun Gold project at this time:
"The mineralization style observed at Shotgun Ridge bears a strong resemblance to the 40 million ounce deposit at the Donlin Gold project operated by Barrick and NovaGold," stated recently appointed director Greg Johnson, "The similar age and host intrusive rocks suggest that, with continued exploration, there is significant potential to locate larger volumes of mineralization in and around Shotgun Ridge."



  We are working on the corporate structure now, which will allow to develop Shotgun Gold with the potential new strategic partner on J/V basis like we are doing with Ganfeng Lithium in International Lithium. You can find more information in the Shotgun Gold Project presentation below, on our website and give us a call to discuss it at any time.
