NioGold Mining Corporation (TSX-V: NOX) is a gold exploration company with extensive land holdings in Northern Quebec's most prominent gold mining region adjacent to 7 producing gold mines. The Malartic project holds NI 43-101 compliant Indicated resources of 600,000 ounces gold in addition to Inferred resources of 360,000 ounces gold . The gold resources are defined along a three-kilometre segment of a regional gold mineralised fault zone, in and around the former Marban, Norlartic and Kierens gold mines, which collectively produced 600,000 ounces gold. NioGold controls a 20 km (12.5 miles) segment of this prospective fault zone.
The Company plans continued aggressive drilling on its land holdings to expand the current resources and for new discoveries. In July 2010, NioGold successfully negotiated an important partnership with Aurizon Mines Ltd. (TSX:ARZ) to further develop the Marban Block gold property in the Malartic camp.
