Piedmont Mining is an exploration-stage company exploring for gold and silver in Nevada. In addition, the company has small interests in oil producing wells in Tennessee. These wells are to provide Piedmont with a source of cash flow to fund its gold and silver exploration activities, which will reduce the need for the company to raise capital by selling more stock and diluting the stake of current shareholders.
