The Imperial Gold Project is located approximately 30 miles east of Brawley, roughly 10 miles from the existing Western Mesquite mining operation and close to Picacho Mine.
The Imperial Valley has a long history of gold mining. See our History page for more information.
*Mining presents significant economic development opportunities for the County. Imperial Gold’s proposed project is forecasted to produce more than 1.2 million ounces of gold and 94 million tons of earthen sediment.
...over $1.1 billion in investment and more than $240 million in taxes and royalties...
The Project has tremendous potential to support the Imperial Valley once operational, including over $1.1 billion in investment and more than $241 million in taxes and royalties paid to state, federal, and local governments.
We anticipate over 20 years of production and economic activity with an opportunity to continue Imperial County’s legacy of gold production for an entire new generation while supporting its people and institutions responsibly and respectfully.
Imperial Gold is committed to using modern exploration and mining methods that are designed to protect the environment, including backfilling mined pits throughout the operational life of the mine.
A Clean Environment for the Salton Sea (Project "ACES") will use project sand and gravel to contribute to the remediation of the Salton Sea.
Imperial Gold will establish and enact measures that are environmentally responsible at all Project stages.
Imperial Gold is committed to protecting the environment, health, and safety of our employees, and neighboring communities where we operate. We are a devoted community partner committed to the success of the Imperial Valley. See our Community Engagement page.
