The Brothers Project is an exploitation license, which allows mining with no additional permits. The Project is not in or near any protected areas, and no villages are located within the concession. Brothers is within the area of interest between Newmont and the government of Suriname in their Mineral Agreement.
Brothers is considered one of the more prospective projects in the Guiana Shield with a number of high priority targets supported by 246 grab samples from the extensive small scale mining operations. Of these samples, 84 exceed 1 g/t Au (34%) and 22 exceed 10 g/t Au with a high assay of 105 g/t Au.
Rhyolite also holds the 100% owned Paxson gold project located in eastern Alaska. Paxson is located within the 1,200 km long Tintina Gold Belt, a metallogenic province stretching from Northern British Columbia to SW Alaska. The province is host to world class gold deposits such as Pogo (5 Moz), Fort Knox (7 Moz), and Livengood (16.5 Moz) and remains a prime area for gold exploration.
