Transformation to producer
On August 31 the company’s shares surged 36% on a transformational acquisition that will see it become a gold producer after securing an 80% interest in the operating Morila Gold Mine in southwest Mali from Barrick Gold Corp ((NYSE:GOLD) and AngloGold Ashanti Limited (NYSE:AU) for US$22-27 million.
The Morila mine has produced more than 7.4 million ounces of gold over 20 years from a 4.5 million tonnes per annum plant and will instantly transform Mali into a cash-generating gold producer.
Morila is producing gold from hydraulic mining and processing of tailings and will provide cashflow for Mali Lithium from completion of the acquisition.
