Searching for another bonanza-grade ore body at one of the world’s richest historical gold deposits
Along with exploration partner, Kinross Gold, USA, LKA is searching for another bonanza-grade ore body at one of the richest gold deposits in the Americas. The Company’s Golden Wonder mine has a production history (Life Of Mine) of 141,510 ounces of gold at an astonishing average ore grade of 11.63 ounces (362 grams) gold per ton and costs, during commercial production, of less than $100 per ounce. LKA has proven that, with the right properties and management team, enormous capital investment and muti-decades of development are not necessarily required to achieve profitable gold production.
Life of Mine average grade -11.63 oz (362 grams) gold per ton. For Golden Wonder production and shipment records, mining videos and reports go to “Golden Wonder Mine”

“Rarely will investors get the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier gold producers in the search for extensions to a bonanza-grade gold deposit…one of the richest in modern history.” Kye Abraham, President
Exploratory mining at LKA’s Golden Wonder mine yields exceptional gold grades (up to 78 ounces gold per ton) as the Company attempts to re-establish high-grade reserves and return to commercial production. Recent surface exploration conducted by Kinross geologists identified up to six potential new ore zones on the Company’s claims. LKA believes this provides investors an unparalleled opportunity to participate with one of the world’s preeminent gold producers in what may be “The Greatest Treasure Hunt In The West.”
