Thank you for your interest in Renaissance Gold Inc and for taking time to learn more about our company. Renaissance is a Nevada-based gold/silver exploration company created as a "spin-out" from the acquisition of AuEx Ventures, Inc. by Fronteer Gold Inc. in November 2010. Renaissance holds over 20 former AuEx exploration projects located in Nevada and Utah. The majority of these projects are in exploration earn-in agreements with a number of industry partners who provide exploration funding. Renaissance carries forth the ongoing business of AuEx with an established exploration team and board of directors - the same team that built AuEx.
Richard Bedell and I co-founded AuEx in 2003 with a vision of identifying and acquiring new exploration projects that had sufficient exploration potential to stimulate industry interest in participation through exploration earn-in agreements. We felt that the benefits of this "joint venture business model", by limiting shareholder dilution, could with discovery, yield significant returns to our shareholders. That is in fact exactly what happened with AuEx with the Long Canyon/Pequop discovery and it is our continuing plan with Renaissance. We have built a large portfolio of exploration projects, brought in industry partners and are seeing meaningful exploration take place. We are an ongoing business with experienced management, a strong exploration team, a seasoned board of directors, and an ongoing track record of discovery. We're looking for more - Exploration is our business!
