GoldMining Inc. (TSX: GOLD | NYSE AMERICAN: GLDG) is a gold company focused on acquiring and advancing copper and gold projects in the Americas. The Company’s key assets include:
- Its large 100% owned portfolio of gold-copper projects,
- An 80% equity share in U.S. GoldMining Inc. (NASDAQ: USGO), it owns a copper-gold project in Alaska,
- A 15% equity share in Gold Royalty Corp. (NYSE American: GROY), and,

As of April 2023, the Company had US$144 million in cash and equity holdings plus a multi-million-ounce gold equivalent resource portfolio.
The market cap of GoldMining was US$175 million (as of April 24) (today it is lower at US$167 million).
Based on these numbers the 100% owned multi-million-ounce gold equivalent portfolio is only being valued at US$31 million (US$175 million less US$144 million).
This means the Company offers ‘excellent value’ and strong ‘leverage to the gold price’. If gold goes up, it could potentially do very well.

GoldMining just did a US$20 million IPO for U.S. GoldMining to raise funds to focus on the 100% owned Whistler Gold-Copper Project in Alaska and to unlock its value.
The Project is located 170 km northwest of Anchorage, Alaska, U.S.A on State-owned land. The Project consists of several gold-copper porphyry deposits and exploration targets within a comprehensive regional land package totaling 217.5 sq km (53,700 acres). The Project is fully permitted for exploration and ready to explore further.
GoldMining’s 15% equity in Gold Royalty
GoldMining Inc. has a 15% equity stake in Gold Royalty Corp. (NYSE: GROY), which completed an IPO at a value of US$90 million. This equity stake is expected to bring in approximately US$1 million in annual cash flow in the form of dividends for GoldMining.

GoldMining is extremely well-positioned to do well in 2023. The stock has a dividend income stream via a 15% ownership in Gold Royalty Corp. as well as potential exploration upside from its 80% ownership of U.S. GoldMining.
Then there is their large portfolio of 100% owned projects which have a combined total M&I Resource of 13.4 million ounces of gold, albeit generally at lower grades.
For investors wanting leverage to the gold price with low to moderate sovereign risk, then GoldMining is well worth a look. Generally speaking, companies with large low-grade gold portfolios offer a potential ‘call option’ on the price of gold.
One to follow in 2023.
