Pilot Gold is a leading gold discovery company built on and fueled by our proprietary Science of Discovery©.
As a philosophy and a practice, the Science of Discovery© is focused on finding the sweet spot – that position on the mining continuum with the greatest opportunity to unlock and deliver maximum value for our shareholders, with the lowest investment of time and capital.
We are currently advancing a portfolio of past producing Carlin-Style gold projects in the western US.  We believe that these strategic assets have powerful potential for significant growth and value creation.

Pilot Gold is led by the same management and technical teams that built Fronteer Gold, a similar growth company acquired in 2011 by Newmont Mining Corporation for $2.3 billion. In 10 years, Fronteer Gold grew from a $2-million venture shell into a well-funded and high-profile gold development company that discovered or advanced seven deposits.

As with Fronteer Gold, Pilot Gold's strategy is to build value by focusing on proven management, high-quality assets, and sustained growth.

  • Management: We have assembled a powerful senior team with a successful track record in the discovery and advancement of high-quality assets.
  • Quality: Our key projects are located in excellent mining jurisdictions within the western US.
  • Growth: Our key projects have considerable upside with significant value yet to be realized, while our pipeline of projects provides a solid platform for future growth.

At Pilot Gold, finding the sweet spot isn’t a game of guesswork or chance. To make the big discoveries, we believe in proven scientific methods and techniques – the Pilot Gold Science of Discovery©.



Goldstrike is located in southwestern Utah and is a Carlin-style gold system, similar in many ways to the prolific deposits located along Nevada’s Carlin trend. Previous mining at Goldstrike occurred from 1988 to 1994, with 209,000 ounces of gold produced from 12 shallow pits, at an average grade of 1.2 g/t Au.


Kinsley Mountain hosts near-surface mineralization similar to other Carlin-style, sediment-hosted gold systems. The property also hosts a past-producing mine with an extensive exploration database and numerous, untested gold targets.

Black Pine

Black Pine (previously called Mineral Gulch) is located in southeastern Idaho and hosts a large, Carline-style sediment-hosted gold system, the surface footprint of which extends over an approximately 12 km2 area. Black Pine is a past-producing heap leach gold mine, which produced approximately 435,000 ounces of gold from 1992 to 1997.

TV Tower

TV Tower contains a large number of targets ranging from high- and low-sulphidation epithermal gold-silver to porphyry gold-copper in the Biga District of Turkey. Pilot Gold has advanced five significant gold, silver and copper-gold discoveries on the project over the past four years. The property hosts numerous additional untested gold and copper targets.


Halilağa is a development stage copper-gold porphyry asset located in Turkey. A Preliminary Economic Assessment was completed in 2015 for a conventional open pit, milling operation producing copper-gold concentrate and gold doré with an after-tax NPV (7%) of $474M and an IRR of 43.1% ($1,200/oz gold and $2.90/lb copper).

Project Pipeline

Pilot Gold’s exploration platform is supported by a strong pipeline of early-stage exploration projects within the Great Basin of Western US. Pilot Gold is also actively looking to acquire additional gold deposits in North America with near-term production potential.
