At the heart of the NatGold™ proposition lies the unparalleled reliability of certified gold resource reports, particularly those compliant with National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101). These reports are not just documents; they are the bedrock upon which the entire edifice of gold valuation and investment decisions are built.

Certified gold resource reports provide an independent, audited verification of gold deposits in the ground, serving as the most reliable method to measure and certify these resources. Governed by stringent standards set by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum (CIM), NI 43-101 reports ensure accuracy, reliability, and transparency in gold resource disclosure. This process forms the foundation of all investment decisions in the gold sector, influencing financiers, mining companies, and investors alike.

While other reporting standards such as the JORC (Joint Ore Reserves Committee) and SAMREC (South African Code for Reporting of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves) are prevalent in different parts of the world, originating from Australia and South Africa, respectively, NI 43-101 is the most widely accepted standard by all global stock exchanges, although SEC Regulation S-K 1300 does create a compliance pathway for other international standards. It is also the sole reporting standard automatically recognized by North American stock exchanges as a requisite for the public disclosure of gold resources by mining companies. This requirement underscores NI 43-101’s unparalleled trustworthiness and its pivotal role in the valuation and trading of gold assets on major financial platforms globally.

Just as physical gold’s value is underpinned above the ground, NatGold’s worth is anchored in the rigorous validation of gold still in the ground. In essence, NatGold digitally mines a tokenized form of ESG-compliant certified gold that is as good as, if not better than, its physically extracted counterpart.

By recognizing the critical role of NI 43-101 certified gold resource reports, the International NatGold Council sees NatGold not just as an innovative digital asset but as a natural evolution of gold’s enduring legacy as a monetary store of value. NatGold emerges as the future of money, with its foundation in the most trusted form of gold validation. It invites us to envision a future where gold’s timeless value is seamlessly integrated into the digital age, with NatGold leading the way.

NatGold is certified gold. NatGold is the future of money.
