About Us

Aligned with our owners – you the shareholders

We are focused on the exploration and development of high-potential gold projects in prolific and proven mining jurisdictions in Eastern Canada. Our experienced management has a proven track record of delivering results and successful company exits.

our mission

Ready Set Gold brings together experienced management and a successful exploration team to explore and develop three Ontario-based properties. Our early emphasis is on expanding the known mineralization at Northshore, while evaluating relatively untested high grade gold veins on the property and making discoveries on the Hemlo Eastern Flanks and Emmons Peak properties. 

our Vision

Our vision is to discover economic gold deposits with exceptional low-cost production potential in stable jurisdictions.
