The fundraise allows us to build on the existing 930,000oz gold resource at the Massan prospect, to establish the potential resource at the Bereko prospect, as well as initial exploration on additional early-stage targets.
RC drilling at both Massan and Bereko has progressed very well and our first assays are imminent. A second rig for diamond drilling is expected to commence in the next few weeks. The team and I are excited for what will be a transformational year ahead.’’
