  • The company has a strong executive and management team with a diverse range of expertise, including geologists, miners, and mining engineers.
  • The project is a paleoplacer deposit, similar to the Tarkwa deposit in Ghana, with significant growth potential along strike and down dip.
  • Tristar Gold is focused on environmental permitting, expecting to receive their preliminary license in quarter two.
  • The outlook for Tristar over the next six to 12 months includes completing drilling to convert reserves, starting the feasibility study, and potentially reaching a construction decision within 15 to 18 months.
