( 'Realgold') for the acquisition of 9 mineral exploration licenses (the 'Licenses') covering approximately 1,200 square kilometers of the most prospective gold ground within the Middle Tien Shan carbonaceous shale belt of the Kyrgyz Republic.

This dataset includes all data from thorough regional, with follow up local, exploration programs. The dataset includes all geological and geochemical maps, maps of soil sediment geochemistry, stream sediment and pan concentrate geochemistry, airborne and ground geophysical surveys, compiled geologic reports and maps of all rock chip and channel sample locations and results as well as all known mineral occurrences.
