  27. 27. EXPLORATION WHY NOVA SCOTIA: • Meguma Terrane hosts more gold occurrences per unit area than any other goldfield • It’s unexplored for shale-hosted disseminated gold deposits – like Touquoy • Mega deposits of this general type occur globally • Very high proportion of exploration dollars go into the ground • Politically stable 27
