Other Exploration

Given B2Gold’s exploration team's successful discovery history, in 2021, B2Gold has allocated approximately $25 million to high quality targets for its grassroots exploration programs, including Finland, Uzbekistan and a number of new regions.

In Finland, the Company has allocated $4.8 million to the Central Lapland joint venture with Aurion Resources Ltd. Most significantly, the westward extension of Rupert Resources’ Ikkari discovery trends directly onto the joint venture ground. This trend coincides with B2Gold’s base-of-till (BOT) drilling and the same interpreted structure as defined by airborne geophysics. Diamond drilling on this target is currently ongoing.

In Uzbekistan, the Company has allocated $5 million to advance exploration on the ground acquired in proximity to the world class Muruntau Mine which is one of the largest open-pit gold mines in the world. Exploration in 2020, mapping, RAB drilling and trenching identified multiple targets on structures and lithologies that have the same alteration and geochemical characteristics as Muruntau. Reverse circulation and diamond drilling are underway on these targets.

In addition, the Company has allocated approximately $15 million for several other greenfield targets currently being pursued.
