Company Statement


Noricum Gold Ltd is an exploration and development company focussed on the advancement of a number of high grade gold and precious metals assets in south-central Austria.

The exploration assets currently comprise 518 exploration licences located across the Salzburg and Carinthia provinces of south and south-west Austria.

Work is currently focussed on the 51 sq km Rotgülden gold and precious metals project, which consists of 15 underground mines including the previously operating gold/copper/silver Rotgülden mine, and the 49 sq km Kliening gold and precious metals project. The Company is actively conducting exploration programmes to advance these licences through the resource development cycle.  Bonanza high grade gold, silver and copper results to date underpin the expanding and exciting potential of the projects and regional continuations.

Noricum also holds a further three exploration licences over prospective land in the region: the 29 sq km Goldeck Project, the 24 sq km Schonberg Project and the 12 sq km Goldzeche Group.


Current Operations




The 51 sq km Rotgülden Project is located on the border of the Salzburg and Carinthia regions in south-western Austria.

Rotgülden consists of 15 underground mines including the previously operating gold/copper/silver Rotgulden mine, although only the Friedrich adit of the Rotgülden Mine is currently fully accessible.

The Company is currently implementing a defined exploration programme at the historically producing Rotgülden mine focussed on intercepting new massive sulphide targets which are typical of the region.

Exploration is ongoing across the wider Rotgülden area in order to identify the extent of the mineralised strike extensions.  Two further targets, Altenberg and Schurfspitze, have been delineated to date within a prospective 8km strike running through the Rotgülden licence area.  High grade gold and silver results up to 86.4 g/t of gold and 1,011 g/t of silver, and excellent copper samples up to 4.49% copper indicate prolific mineralisation and demonstrate the project's expansive, polymetallic potential.

Access to the Project is via good quality tarred roads and electricity supply and communications networks across the region are also well established.

The prospective Kliening gold project is located circa 100km east of Rotgülden in south-central Austria, in an area that has a history of gold/arsenic mining.  The project has clearly defined geological mineralised structures and offers good access and moderate terrain, ideal for exploration.

Exploration is currently ongoing at this target, focussed on lode style mineralisation at Buchbauer-Bischofeck where historical work, including trenching, mapping and sampling, has confirmed the existence of several groups of parallel vein swarms.  The veins in these swarms are up to 2.5m wide with high gold grades present.  The veins appear 25m apart within the swarms, which can be 100m apart.  Drilling has commenced and is focussed on delineating a Maiden Resource for the area.

Unlike Rotgülden however, hard rock exposure is rare. The concession contains numerous spoil heaps which provide the sole evidence of previous historical mining activity.



Goldeck consists of 63 licences located 35km south of Rotgülden. These licences cover approximately 29 sq km over a mountainous area one kilometre south of the town of Baldramsdorf, reaching a peak elevation of 1,765m above sea level.

This is also an area of historic gold mining albeit on a small scale. A preliminary sampling programme has delineated a wide mineralised structure carrying potentially economic gold grades.

The gold mineralisation is thought to be stratabound and forms a quartz stockwork zone along a schist-marble contact. Reported assay values from channel samples range from 4.8g/t Au to 18.2 g/t Au. This occurrence can be traced for 30m along an exploration drive which had never been drilled or otherwise tested as a gold target.



Schonberg consists of 54 licences located approximately 100km due east of Rotgülden. These licences are centred on the town of Kittelfeld and Flatschach

The latter is part of the Flatschachgraben mining district which, along with the Brunngraben and Adlitz districts, form a historic copper mining zone.

The geology of the Schonberg licences is more varied than the other licence areas. In the north are Tertiary clastic sediments while the central section is covered by paragneiss and mica schists of the Austroalpine crystalline complexes. The south is dominated by amphibolites also associated with the Austroalpine complexes.

Mineralisation is believed to consist of a number of discordant calcite-dolomite-ankerite veins and extends for approximately 2km in a SW-NE direction. The major ore forming mineral is chalcopyrite.

Sampling and mapping has commenced at this licence, supervised by Professor Johann Raith, Chair of Resource Mineralogy Department at the Mining University in Leoben, Austria.



The 25 Goldzeche licences are located approximately 40km due west of Rotgülden. They lie outside of the Tauern window and within the paragneiss and mica schist of the Austroalpine crystalline complexes.

A number of old mine workings are thought to occur within the licence area and are located between 2,600m and 2,900m above sea level. The area is known for historical gold mining centred on the village of Heiligenblurt. Mining activity has been dated back to Roman times although no data is available.

Coarse grained (0.5 - 2mm) gold occurs in quartz veins accompanied by copper dominated sulphide mineralisation (chalcopyrite, sphalerite and galena). Silver minerals are also thought to be abundant as well as fluorite and magnetite.
