About Us

Ascot is a Canadian mining company focused on commissioning its 100%-owned Premier Gold Mine, which poured first gold in April 2024 and is located on Nisga’a Nation Treaty Lands, in the prolific Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia. Concurrent with commissioning Premier towards commercial production anticipated in Q3 of 2024, the Company continues to explore its properties for additional high-grade gold mineralization. Ascot’s corporate office is in Vancouver, and its shares trade on the TSX under the ticker AOT and on the OTCQX under the ticker AOTVF. Ascot is committed to the safe and responsible operation of the Premier Gold Mine in collaboration with Nisga’a Nation and the local communities of Stewart, BC and Hyder, Alaska. 

The Company filed its feasibility study in May 2020 for its 100% owned Premier and Red Mountain Gold Projects which would supply gold and silver ores to the process plant.  The study supports robust economics including base case After-tax NPV5% of C$341 million and IRR 51% (based on US$1400/oz gold price, $17/oz silver price and CAD to US exchange rate of 0.76.) Ascot received the Mines Act Permit to re-start PGP in December 2021.

The Silver Coin, Big Missouri, and Premier deposits, collectively being named the Premier Gold Project (PGP) are located near the processing facility on the historical Premier Mine site, and the Red Mountain Project (RMP) is located 23 km to the southeast in an adjacent valley. The projects benefit from existing road access, historical underground mining infrastructure, a mill processing facility, the nearby Long Lake Hydro power plant, a tailings storage facility (TSF), a water treatment plant, and mine waste stockpile infrastructure resulting in a low initial capital refurbishment cost.

Mining will begin at the Big Missouri and Premier deposits followed by Silver Coin. Access for production at all the deposits will be through both new and existing side hill portal access using a combination of new ramp development and the refurbishment of existing underground infrastructure. Mining methods will largely consist of low-cost long-hole stoping with limited use of inclined undercut long-hole, and room and-pillar methods. Ore will be trucked to the processing facility, and mining waste will be used underground as a combination of rockfill and cemented rockfill. The plant will use conventional crushing, grinding, and gravity circuits followed by a standard carbon-in-leach (CIL) process to produce a gold doré.

In addition, the Company will continue to drill a number of gold-silver discoveries on its 25,000 hectares of mineral concessions that benefit from their proximity to Premier and the towns of Stewart, B.C and Hyder, Alaska.
