A new drilling program has been designed to take mineralisation to more than 500 vertical metres down dip on the southern shoot at M1 South.
A definitive feasibility study for the Sanbrado has confirmed it as a robust project with strong early cashflow, rapid payback of capital and the expected production of 150,000 ounces of gold per year.
The company’s shares were last trading at $0.35, rising circa 59% during the last six months.
West African remains on track to deliver a resource update in Q3 2017 and an updated feasibility study in mid-2018.
