E M I PRODIGY GOLD INC. CAN ADA FA L L / W I N T E R 2 0 1 2 A Good Match in Ontario The merger of Kodiak and Golden Goose that formed Prodigy Gold has led to work beginning on the Magino mine. [ BY ALAN DORICH ] • Vancouver “[We want to] build a company that we can all be proud of.” // BRIAN MAHER, president and CEO Prodigy Gold represents the merger of two exploration firms in need of a partner. . For Kodiak Exploration and Golden Goose Resources, the opportunity to work together as Prodigy Gold Inc. has been an ideal one, President and CEO Brian Maher says. “The two were a good match,” he states. Before the two came together in January 2011, the firms were in need of a partner. While Kodiak sought a flagship property to develop, Golden Goose had one that needed capital: its Magino mine property, a once-active underground gold mine located near Wawa, Ontario. After Kodiak learned of the project, it merged with Golden Goose, forming Prodigy Gold. Today, the Vancouverbased firm has additional gold projects, but Magino is its primary focus, Maher says. “That has become the vehicle of growth for our shareholders,” he says. Located 400 kilometers northwest of Toronto, the Magino property is in an active mining district, Maher says. “Next to us, there’s an operating gold mine called Island Gold,” he says, noting that Magino is estimated to have 6.1 million ounces of resources.
