TORONTO – Golden Predator Mining of Vancouver and its wholly owned subsidiary Yukon Mint have unveiled their first .9999 gold coin at a company event in this city on May 30, 2018.

The 2018 Kaska ‘Keda’ (Dene for ‘Moose’) gold coin depicts the winning art work of Kaska Nation artist Miranda Lane on both a 1.0- and 0.5-ounce .9999 gold coin which will be available for sale, in limited edition, commencing National Aboriginal Day, June 21, 2018.

Yukon Mint gold coins will be part of a limited annual series featuring First Nation art.

Gold from the Golden Predator 3 Aces Project bulk sample is incorporated into the coins and a percentage of the net profits from the sale of the coins will be shared with the Kaska Nation. The bulk sample material was processed at Predator’s test facility using water and gravity only, without the use of chemicals.

Rob McEwen, chief owner and chairman of Predator’s largest shareholder McEwen Mining, purchased the first Keda coin.
