The Company’s principals have significant experience in global exploration and development in precious and base metals globally. Most recently in founding and developing Prime Mining (focused on gold in Mexico) and M2 Cobalt (cobalt exploration in East Africa) which was sold to Jerviois Mining in June 2019. The leadership team has a track-record of outstanding governance and a proven ability at building shareholder value.


Apollo Gold is exploring for world class gold deposits in tier-one jurisdictions

Our initial project is located in the heart of the Republic of Chile’s prolific El Indio Gold Belt, a highly prospective 5,329 hectare property surrounded by some of the largest gold companies / mines in the world.


Apollo’s team brings deep global resource experience:

  • Long-term experience and commitment to exploration and development
  • Proven track-record in advancing projects and creating shareholder value
  • Recent examples include: Prime Mining, M2 Cobalt, Millennial Lithium

Why Gold?

  • Bank of America Chief Global FICC Technical Strategist said uptrend in gold set to test the 2012 highs of $1,790-1,805/oz in the next week (26 June 2020)
  • Bank of America, filed a report (April 21, 2020) raising its 18-month gold price target by 50%, from $2,000 to $3,000 an ounce
  • Citigroup thinks bullion markets could re-test the nominal price peaks of 2011-2012 to trade at between $1,800 and $2,000 by 2021 or 2022.
  • In its most recent forecast, RBC Capital Markets said gold could reach a record-setting average price of US$2,012 per ounce in the first quarter of 2021 under its high-price scenario

$1,600 is going to be a footnote…I think gold is going to $2,500, $3,000/oz in the 2020s because the climate, the landscape for gold is so hugely supportive.
