About the Company

Atlanta Gold Inc. holds through its 100% owned subsidiary, AGC, leases, options or ownership interests in its Atlanta properties which comprise approximately 2,159 acres (8.74 square kilometres) located 90 air kilometres east of Boise, in Elmore County, Idaho. A long history of mining makes Atlanta very suitable for development of new mining projects.  The Company is focused on advancing its core asset, Atlanta, towards mine development and production.

The Company is also focused on advancing its exploration and processing methods on the Neal Property, which is located approximately 15 miles from Boise, Idaho and comprises approximately 192 acres (0.78 square kilometres). The Neal Property’s geology is similar to that of the Atlanta Project; in that, there are northeasterly-trending shear zones in granodioritic host rocks.  The Neal Property provides the Company with all-season access to further refine the processing equipment and procedures. AGC holds a five-year lease on the Neal Property and has staked an additional seven contiguous claims on public land that was open to mineral entry.
