Kobada Project Update

The Company has initiated an internal scoping study at its flagship asset in Mali, the Kobada Gold Project, to evaluate the development options for the Kobada Gold Project and determine whether the existing mineral reserve and resource estimates can be optimized, relative to a potential phased approach of a larger Phase 1 production profile.

The purpose of the Kobada project internal study is to:

  • Provide a clear direction for the Company to pursue as well as provide indications of the Kobada Gold Project's future potential upside.
  • To highlight particular activities, required for planning purposes, to further highlight the expansion potential of the current resource.
  • Use the existing Inferred resource to determine the potential upside to the scale of the current production profile of the Kobada project.
  • Determine if a major exploration and drilling program is justified to potentially unlock the significant upside potential of the known Kobada deposit and the surrounding area, which is open in all directions.

Madougou Project

AGG has commenced it work program at the Madougou Project in an effort to establishing a maiden resource on the concession. The initial program consists of:

  • Validation of previous geological data and the construction of a geological database
