Azumah is focused on exploring and developing its regional scale Wa Gold Project, which currently hosts 2.1 million ounces of gold grading 1.5 g/t.

Three main deposits have been discovered and extensively drilled at Kunche, Bepkong and Julie, as well as several satellite deposits.

Stephen Stone, managing director, commented

“The rapid approval by the new Ghana Government of the transformational Azumah-Ibaera funding agreement is entirely consistent with its push to re-establish Ghana as West Africa’s preferred destination for exploration and mining.

“Ibaera’s highly experienced and accomplished technical team is now onboard and finalising programmes and budgets including for drilling aimed at boosting Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves and ultimately the delivery of a revised blueprint for funding and development of the Wa Gold Project.”
