Erdene Resource Development is advancing development of its high-grade (3.7 g/t Au), open-pit Bayan Khundii Gold Project in Southwest Mongolia, where the Company has made four high-grade, near-surface gold discoveries within its 170km2 Khundii Gold District. These deposits are located in an unexplored portion of one of the world’s great gold belts, the Central Asian Orogenic Belt, where the Company has been the leader in exploration for over a decade.


Erdene’s two-prong strategy is to create value by advancing the Bayan Khundii Gold Project towards development, while expanding high-grade gold resources through aggressive exploration in the Khundii Gold District. We are targeting total resources of over 2 million ounces of gold within the Khundii Gold District by the end of 2022.
