About Us

Gold Mines of Wales Limited (“GMOW”) is the ultimate owner of the Clogau Gold Project situated within the Dolgellau gold belt in Wales, United Kingdom. The Project comprises the Clogau Gold Mine and includes a large number of highly prospective gold targets and former gold workings within a total option area of 106.94 km².

The Project is underpinned by an Option Agreement between GMOW (Operations) Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of GMOW), Her Majesty The Queen and The Crown Estate Commissioners by which agreement GMOW Operations was granted the right to prospect and mine the Project area subject to the terms and conditions set out in the agreement.  The Option Agreement was renewed on 14th August 2015 and the boundaries encompass an area of 106.94 km², split between three sub-areas.  The Option is valid for a period of six years from the commencement date, which is stated as 10th February 2015 and is subject to regular progress reviews.

The board and management of GMOW utilize the skills of a number of mining professionals with proven track records, including the experienced technical team of our ultimate parent company Alba Mineral Resources plc. Using the technical, commercial and operational skills available to GMOW, our priority is to target both the work needed to bring the former Clogau Gold Mine back into production while at the same time making a push into the regional exploration of the wider Project area. Alba’s proposed field programme is the first ever concerted modern exploration campaign to be conducted on the Dolgellau gold belt since the first discovery there in 1853.
