About FireFox Gold Corp.
FireFox is a non-listed reporting issuer in each of the provinces of Canada, other than Québec, focused entirely on gold exploration in Finland. The Company has entered into option agreements with Magnus Minerals Ltd., a private prospect generator company in Finland, through which it has options to acquire 100% interests in several projects (subject to an NSR royalty) that currently encompass approximately 104,000 hectares, that complement approximately 4,000 hectares of exploration reservations and exploration permits already held directly by the Company. In order to complete the combined options, the Company must invest CAD $4.0 million in exploration on the properties and make cash payments to Magnus totaling up to CAD $450,000 over the course of the two separate three-year option periods.
Finland is one of the top mining jurisdictions in the world as indicated by its 1st ranking in the 2017 Fraser Institute Survey of Mining Companies. Having a strong mining law and long mining tradition, Finland remains underexplored for gold. Recent exploration results in the country have highlighted its prospectivity, and FireFox is proud to have a Finland based CEO and technical team.
