  • Sihayo Gold is engaged in the exploration and development of gold assets in North Sumatra, Indonesia.
  • The Company is undertaking an extensive drilling campaign to increase its existing mineral resources.
  • Sihayo maintains strong domestic partnerships and is debt-free.
  • The Company holds substantial cash to fund its current exploration and development programs on site.

ASX-listed Sihayo Gold Limited (ASX:SIH) is engaged in the exploration and development of the highly prospective Sihayo-Pungkut 7th Generation Contract of Works (CoW) in Indonesia.  SIH owns 75% of PT Sorikmas Mining (PT Aneka Tambang is the company’s JV with the remaining 25%) which in turn holds the CoW. 

The CoW coincides with the geologically prolific Trans Sumatra Fault Zone (TSFZ), which is known to hold some of the major gold projects in the region. The most advance project on the CoW is the Sihayo Gold Project, for which a Definitive Feasibility Study was completed in June 2020.

Sihayo’s management is currently implementing a three-tiered exploration strategy, which includes:

  • Near mine exploration targeting extensions to the existing Sihayo Gold Project resource.
  • Advanced exploration at Hutabargot Julu aimed at discovery of new epithermal Au and Ag deposits
  • Target generation work over the broader CoW aimed at building a pipeline of porphyry copper/gold, epithermal and sediment hosted prospects.
