background

GDR and PDI Company Overview

Gold Dragon Resources Corporation (“GDR”) is a Canadian company founded by former South African and Canadian mining executives. Our vision is to establish a geographically diversified multi-commodity mining house focused on the acquisition and development of near term gold, uranium, base metal and industrial minerals projects in Southern Africa, Chile, Ontario and elsewhere.

The composition of the GDR and PDI team is purposely designed to cover key areas regarded as critical in bringing mining projects from greenfields exploration status to actual production in as short a time as possible. GDR’s core competencies cover areas such as exploration, geology, metallurgy, mining engineering, mechanical engineering, finance and accounting, corporate governance, legal, secretarial, permitting and compliance, capital markets, human resources and mine management. Certain members of GDR’s technical team have a deep geological knowledge of northern Chile, which combined with a different approach has led to discoveries that others have overlooked. Management and directors have provided the founding capital for the venture and own 57% of the company.
