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.


our story

Discovery of gold in quartz veins
Main Vein mined producing ~2,400 oz Au at an avg grade of 21.80 g/t Au
Initial discovery and work on Afric Zone by Noranda/Hemlo Gold
Cyprus Canada & American Bonanza – trenching/drilling at Afric Zone
Balmoral acquires American Bonanza’s Canadian assets including Northshore
GTA Resources options the Northshore project – ownership becomes fractured (56% GTA/44% Balmoral)
Initial NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate based on 100 holes + 19,000m of drilling for the Afric Zone - indicated resources of 391,000 oz and inferred resources of 824,000 oz
Additional 54 drill holes and 3,171 meters of drilling completed – discovery of Gino Zone
Study of the Afric Zone higher grade, near-surface gold mineralization - Results outline two proposed shallow pits labeled West Pit & East Pit.
100% property acquisition by Ready Set
