Managing Director Mark Calderwood remarked, “The company is well ahead of schedule in its quest to complete 150,000 metres of drilling in Ghana this year, having completed 47,322 metres in the first three months. Over 13,500 metres of this drilling was carried out to sterilize waste dump sites. We expect the slow turnaround for assays to improve during the next couple of months. Drilling at the CAGP is currently focused on growing our gold reserves from 3.3 million ounces to 4 million ounces to allow the option of increasing production rates.”
