    Exclusive Interview with Micheal Mitsunaga – President, CEO and DirectorArizona Gold and Onyx Mining Co PINK:VGCP

    Arizona Gold and Onyx Mining Co PINK:VGCP is pursuing exploration and development on its polymetallic property, known as the Mayer Project, located in Arizona, the leading mining state in the U.S.A. Initially, the Company intends to commence production of high grade onyx from a large deposit on the property and to also investigate the occurrences of Gold, Silver, Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) and Copper that have been discovered on the property.

    While a variety of onyx occurs on the project, the largest portion of the deposit consists of rare and beautiful “Honey” onyx, widely used in kitchens, baths and in many other interior and exterior décor. As well, pure black onyx coveted by the jewelry trade and other high-end users, and commanding a premium price in onyx markets worldwide, occurs on the property.

    With rising demand and prices for high quality onyx, as well as for precious and base metals globally, Arizona Gold and Onyx is enthusiastic that its Mayer mining project in Arizona represents excellent potential and a compelling opportunity for profitable minerals production during the new global paradigm of the 20th Century in which mineral commodities are the foundation for economic growth.

    Where are the Gold Sites:

In the event that the Company is able to finalize either mine, the gold reserves would jump to between 18M and 24M ounces of gold reserves.
