The Bau Goldfield

The Future is Bau

The Bau Goldfield in East Malaysia is a world-class gold project with a century long history of successful gold mining. Geologically similar to the Carlin Trend in Nevada, the property has multiple deposits and an established (JORC/NI 43-101gold resource.

Besra holds a 85.61% controlling interest in Bau Goldfield, with an agreement to increase ownership to 93.55% by September 2015. A feasibility study was rleased early in 2014 and we are preparing for the next phase of development at this “company maker” project.

The Bau property is a brown-field project, spread over a large geographic area in which Besra is in a consortium with a Malaysian company with material Bumiputra interest that owns rights to mining tenements covering much of the historic Goldfield. Bau is on the island of  Sarawak, East Malaysia.
