Project to promote: Kiewit Gold Project

Desert Hawk Gold is a Utah Gold producer, currently on track to produce 15,000 ounces per annum from a fully permitted open pit heap leach gold mine. The company controls an entire geologic trend which begs for further exploration to expand the current resource. Potential exists for over 1,000,000 ounces along the Kiewit trend, and the near term objective is to expand the resource and increase the annual production rate to 30,000 ounces or more.
