• The Besra is a bird of prey found throughout Southeast Asia. It's tenacious, agile & fast, with powerful vision. As a gold mining company, we strive to embrace these qualities in all we do.


Besra is a gold producer focused on Southeast Asia. With a solid history in Vietnam, where the company has brought two gold mines into production, we are now moving ahead with the development of the Bau Gold Field in East Malaysia. Bau alone has the potential to catapult Besra into a new category. It is a multi-million ounce deposit that we will continue to expand year on year. We hire the best geologists, mining engineers, and metallurgists because we know, as valuable as gold is, great people get it out of the ground. And we care about the communities we work in. Besra isn't just another junior mining company; we actually produce gold while striving to create value for our shareholders.
We have premium gold assets across Southeast Asia, with a core focus on the Bau goldfield in East Malaysia. Besra also opened Vietnam’s first modern gold mine at Bong Mieu, followed five years later by the plant at Phuoc Son. Together, they form the largest gold mining operation in the country. Read more →
The Bau Project is Besra’s exciting new development located in Sarawak in East Malaysia. In January 2014 we released the Stage 1 Feasibility Study that marks a major step forward in Besra’s corporate development. Read More →
It may sound like a cliche, but the greatest asset we have is people. Combined, the Besra team brings an enormous amount of knowledge and gold mining expertise to the table. Having great properties and great projects are important obviously, but it's the people on board that bring them to life. We've built an amazing team. Read more →
