SIKA holds properties located within the Lake Victoria Goldfields, a world-class gold district with over 60 million ounces of gold in reserves. SIKA’s properties host Archean greenstone rocks within which numerous northeast-southwest and northwest-southeast trending fault/shear zones are seen, similar to trends hosting known gold deposits across the district.

Deposits in the Lake Victoria Goldfields district, some within 30 km of SIKA’s properties, include:

  • AngloGold Ashanti’s Geita Mines (+19 million oz)
  • Barrick Gold’s Bulyanhulu Mine (+15 million oz)
  • Resolute Mining’s Golden Pride (+2.6 million oz)
  • A host of other known deposits and gold mines including Barrick’s Tuluwaka and Buzwagi
