About Omai Gold Mines Corp.
“Oh my!” is exactly what early prospectors shouted when they discovered Guyana’s vast mineral wealth 130 years ago. And at the heart of the country is the Omai gold mine: a multi million-ounce deposit that was once South America’s largest producing gold mine. Today, we’re building on this past success with the right tools, relationships and vision to bring this under-explored gold mine back to life. It’s a unique opportunity that is sure to make you say, “Omai!”
Avalon Gold Exploration Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Omai Gold Mines Corp., holds a 100% interest in the Omai Prospecting License covering 4,590 acres, including the past producing Omai gold mine.
