History


 

Founded in 2007, West Kirkland Mining completed a Qualifying Transaction in 2010 and listed on the Toronto Venture Exchange under the symbol “WKM”.  The Company was formed to focus on gold exploration in North America and today has consolidated significant mineral rights positions in the major gold trends of Nevada and Utah.

Option agreements have been struck with Fronteer Gold (acquired by Newmont Mining) and Rubicon Minerals in Nevada. These and other agreements bring West Kirkland's land position to over 1,000 km2 in Nevada and Utah along with additional holdings in Ontario.

West Kirkland's management team has generated over $1.5 billion in shareholder value over the past decade through the founding of precious metals exploration and development companies. They have experience with numerous value-adding transactions from takeovers to mergers and mine construction. Their track record includes the following:

  • West Timmins Mining (WTM:TSX.V): takeover by Lake Shore Gold Corp. for CAD$424 million November 2009
  • MAG Silver (MAG:TSX): emerging Mexican silver producer
  • Platinum Group Metals (PTM:TSX): emerging South African platinum producer

These successes have garnered the group significant institutional support, which has been the basis of West Kirkland's capitalization. As of February, 2014 the Company has 73.2 million shares outstanding—approximately 7.5% held by management 57% held by institutions, including 8% held by Newmont Mining.

The  Company’s first gold/silver resource estimate in the Long Canyon Trend was announced in June, 2012.  On January 27, 2014 West Kirkland announced a binding letter agreement with Allied Nevada Gold Corp. (ANV) to acquire ANV’s  Hasbrouck and Three Hills properties. With these assets and numerous advanced targets in Nevada, West Kirkland is poised for success.
