About Northstar Gold Corp.
Prior to going public on the CSE on January 2, 2020 by way of a $3 million Initial Public Offering, Northstar operated for the past 11 years as a private company focused primarily on gold exploration in the prolific Kirkland Lake District in northeastern Ontario (>24.5 million ounces gold produced from 7 mines since 1915). During this time, the Company raised nearly $7 million to acquire and advance 3-100% owned gold and base-metal properties in the Kirkland Lake region. Northstar has an accomplished Board, Special Advisor and Management Group comprised of professionals highly experienced in exploration, mining, finance and investment banking on a global basis. In late February, 2020, Northstar commenced a $1.1 million Phase I exploration program, which includes 3,000 m of drilling on its flagship, early-resource stage Miller Gold Property, situated 18 km southeast of the town of Kirkland Lake and Kirkland Lake Gold’s Macassa gold mine.
