• Exploring for Gold in Alaska

    Targeting world class deposits on the Estelle Gold Trend in Alaska's Tintina Gold Belt, with multiple resource centers across the single project, including two already defined multi-million ounce resources across four deposits containing a combined 9,900,000 oz Gold.

    Recently antimony and other critical minerals were also discovered coincident with the gold in surface sampling on numerous prospects across the project.

  • Korbel

    Bulk Tonnage Gold: A 8,650,000 oz Gold Resource across two deposits at the Northern end of Estelle.

    More than 2.5km of defined strike and numerous other prospects to explore.

  • Supporting Alaska

    It is in Nova's DNA to employ, buy and help Alaskan communities wherever we can. To date we have spent in excess of USD$30m on local procurement, supported over 50 local Alaskan businesses and through contractors employed 100's Alaskans from local communities.

Developing ‘Estelle’ North America’s Next Major Gold Trend to Become a World-Class, Tier One Global Gold Producer

Nova’s flagship Estelle Gold Project contains multiple resource centers across a 35km long mineralized corridor of over 20 identified gold prospects, some of which are coincident with critical minerals including antimony. The project, which is situated on the Estelle Gold Trend in Alaska’s prolific Tintina Gold Belt, a province which hosts a 220 million ounce (Moz) documented gold endowment and some of the world’s largest gold mines and discoveries including Victoria Gold’s Eagle Mine and Kinross Gold Corporation’s Fort Knox Gold Mine, already contains two defined multi-million ounce resources across four deposits containing a combined 9.9 Moz Au. 

Easy access is currently available to the project via a winter road and by air, and recently the proposed West Susitna Access Road, which is situated on State land within the Matanuska-Susitna Borough and has considerable support from both the community and the State government, has progressed to the permitting stage, with construction proposed to start in 2025.

Fast Growing Gold Resource

Estelle is a near-surface Intrusion Related Gold System (IRGS) and since 2018, Nova has been systematically exploring the multiple prospects within the project area. In just over five years of exploration, Nova has rapidly grown its resource base to 9.9 Moz Au, yet the company is only just beginning to unearth the potential at the Estelle Gold Project. Ongoing drill programs will continue to grow both the size and confidence of the resource base over the coming years, and recently high-grade antimony and other critical minerals were discovered in surface sampling results on numerous prospects across the project which will be investigated further.
