Our goal for continued growth will be to identify at least one additional acquisition target over the next 12 months and identify management contract opportunities. In order to better achieve these goals we expect to initiate the licensing process in the state of Nevada at some time before our fiscal year is over," said Robert Sturges, CEO of Nevada Gold.
