The Birimian sequence of West Africa is one of the world’s great gold regions. Based on the current West African mining industry, the region has excellent endowment and high prospectivity, with many multi-million ounce gold discoveries to date.
West Africa has also been the world leader in the discovery rate and development of new mines over the last 15 years.
The Company believes that its current exploration focus opens up opportunities to make discoveries in previously untested regions through the application of advanced geochemistry and detailed geophysics. Moreover, management is experienced in West African geology and community expectations.
All of the Company’s projects are located within Birimian Greenstone Belts. They have been strategically selected adjacent to major structural zones and all contain identified gold mineralisation or untested artisinal workings. The Projects are summarised below, and more detailed information is outlined in Section 2 of the Prospectus and the Independent Geologist’s Report (IGR) in Section 4 of the Prospectus.
The Board and management bring together a complimentary mix of practical exploration and corporate skills, with extensive experience in the following areas:
The Company intends to employ personnel in Niger, Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire to ensure the successful management of field activities over the next two years. The Board is intending to appoint a senior exploration management team within a short period of time after the date of the Prospectus to rapidly develop and advance the exploration programmes of the Projects.
