American Eagle Gold
Exploring a World-Class Gold Deposit in Nevada's Cortez Trend
This American Eagle Gold profile is part of a paid investor education campaign.*
Nevada is home to the world’s most prolific gold-producing district and ranks the second-largest for known gold resources in the world. While many know the famous Carlin Trend, the state’s more mature Cortez Trend is shaping up to be one of the most prolific areas in the world to be exploring for gold.
Since 1996, Nevada’s Cortez Trend has seen a substantial spike in cumulative gold production, averaging approximately one million ounces a year since. Less than half the age of the Carlin Trend in terms of being a major gold producing district, the Cortez trend has incredible upside and many world-class orebodies yet to be discovered.
American Eagle Gold (AE: TSXV) is a mineral exploration company focused on exploring world-class gold deposits in North America. The company’s flagship Golden Trend project sits on the Cortez Trend, adjacent to Nevada Gold Mines’ Goldrush and Cortez Mine, the joint venture between Barrick Gold (ABX: TSX) and Newmont (NGT: TSX).
Golden Trend is strategically situated on the Cortez Trend, which hosts three large Carlin-type gold deposits operated by Barrick and Newmont’s Joint Venture, Nevada Gold Mines (Pipeline, Cortez Hills and Goldrush). The three mines north of Golden Trend host over 50 million oz. of gold reserves and resources. In total, they have produced over 25 million oz. since 1996. Newmont and Barrick’s three world-class properties were discovered ten years after one another, moving southwest along the Cortez trend. Golden Tend is a property southwest of the Nevada Gold Mines’ Goldrush deposit, which was discovered ten years ago.
The property has seen several generations of fieldwork, but no drilling deeper than 600m has been conducted, and only four holes were completed to depths greater than 350m. This lack of drilling creates huge potential for investors if drilling intercepts gold mineralization. Golden Trend is in the best possible location, being attached to Newmont and Barrick’s property. It also has a world-renowned expert in exploring carlin-type orebodies. With the proper plan and work, there is a real possibility that the next world-class orebody on this trend can be uncovered.
American Eagle is part of the Ore Group of companies, whose overall business plan centres on consolidating prospective land packages in mining-friendly jurisdictions and employing a talented team with strong financial and technical expertise. Golden Trend represents an opportunity to make a world-class gold discovery, which is paramount to American Eagle’s growth.
The company’s management team has extensive local and geological knowledge of the Golden Trend regional area, which poises excellent developmental capabilities and advanced exploration targeting American Eagle Gold. Most notably, Mark Bradley, American Eagle Gold’s VP of Exploration, was formerly the principal geologist of exploration opportunities at Barrick Gold and was co-discoverer of the Goldrush deposit. His top expertise in Carlin-type deposits and over 35 years of mining experience adds significant leadership power to the American Eagle Gold management team.
“The company intends to continue developing its property and focus on making smart, creative, accretive deals in the area. Its 2021 exploration plan involves field exploration to develop high probability targets for its drilling campaign to begin in Q3 2021.”
American Eagle Gold has a strong share structure with 56.5 million shares outstanding and a shareholder portfolio made largely of insiders, institutions, and management. Additionally, the company has an excellent financial footing with over $3 million in cash.

American Eagle Gold’s Key Project
Golden Trend Project
The Golden Trend project spans 2,286 acres consisting of 111 claims and lies immediately adjacent to the Goldrush deposit property and southeast of and along trend with the same structure as the Barrick Cortez mine within the Cortez Trend, Nevada.
The Golden Trend property is a Carlin-style gold prospect with large, underground gold systems hosted in lower plate carbonate rocks with the Cortez fault system to the west and the Northern Nevada Rift to the east. A series of northeast-trending, steeply dipping reverse faults transect the property. This geological profile also points to unique anomalous, albeit low level, gold, arsenic and mercury soils, which suggest these structures provided channel ways for mineralized hydrothermal fluids.
Carlin-style host rocks confirm the diagnostic chemical signature and proximity to known multi-million-ounce deposits warrant further exploration across the Golden Trend property. Future exploration will focus on defining drill targets by analyzing the relationship between the productive structures, geochemical anomalism and possible geophysical signature of undercover Carlin-style deposits.
