Asante is a gold focused explorer

Ghana-focused explorer Asante Gold Corporation (CSE:ASE, OTC:ASGOF) has bolstered its advisory board with experienced mining professional Kevin Thomson.

He joins Eric Ewen, the discoverer of Asanko Gold’s 6mln ounce resource Esaase orebody and chief executive Douglas MacQuarrie, who acquired and under his supervision, drilled off the 5mln ounce Nkran (Obotan) resource, for a combined 18.1mln ounces in new West African gold resources and discoveries.

Formidable team..

"This is one of the most formidable West African exploration and acquisition teams ever assembled and we look forward to new discoveries on our Keyhole, Betenase, Fahiakoba and Kubi gold projects, all located near the centre of Ghana’s Golden Triangle," said Asante in a stock exchange statement.

All in all,  the advisors have acquired,  found, or developed more than 30 mln ounces of gold in West Africa.

Thomson himself between 2007 and 2012, managed exploration and resource drilling programs at the Edikan mine in Ghana and at Sissingue in Cote d’Ivoire.

Two new orebodies..

This resulted in the discovery of two new orebodies and the addition of gold resources of 5.9mln ounces at Edikan and 1.2mln ounces at Sissingue, for a total of 7.1mln  ounces, including 3.8mln ounces in the proven and probable category.

Thomson's CV includes group exploration manager, West Africa for Perseus Mining, Ltd (TSE:PRU) exploration manager, Ghana for Newmont Mining Corp (NYSE:NEM), as well as in Canada with Noranda Exploration, Hemlo Gold, Battle Mountain Gold, and Lac Minerals.

Asante continues on the hunt for equity/debt or joint venture partner funding to develop the Kubi Mining Lease in Ghana as a potential near term underground mine.

It is also exploring the Keyhole, Fahiakoba and Betenase concessions/options, which all adjoin or are along the strike of major gold mines near the centre of Ghana’s Golden Triangle.
