Goldplat plc ('Goldplat' or 'the Company')

 

Ashanti Gold Corp releases an exploration update at the Anumso Gold Project

 

Goldplat, the AIM quoted gold producer with international gold recovery operations located in South Africa and Ghana and a gold mine in Kenya, notes the announcement released by Ashanti Gold Corp. ('Ashanti') in relation to Goldplat's Anumso Gold Project in Ghana ('Anumso'), in which Ashanti has the right to earn up to 75% of Goldplat's interest by expending US$3million on exploration work.  

 

Ashanti has identified broader and new mineralised zones at Anumso, which are in aggregate 480m wide in certain areas of mineralisation, following soil sampling. Approximately 1,200 samples revealed multiple zones of mineralised Banket conglomerate. The soil samples tested returned samples with over 30 ppb gold ('Au'), with 24 samples containing more than 100 ppb Au. Results from initial metallurgical test work on oxidised and unoxidised mineralised samples were encouraging; strong gold recovery by cyanidation was observed and an initial Extended Gravity Recoverable Gold test was conducted on an unoxidised composite, which indicated that up to 72.9% of the gold may be recoverable by gravity methods.  Further work to optimise process conditions and evaluate variability is planned by Ashanti.

About Goldplat                                                                                               

Goldplat plc is an AIM quoted gold producer with two market leading recovery operations in South Africa and Ghana and an operational gold mine in Kenya.   The Company produced 42,857 ounces of gold during FY 2017, with 40,285 gold equivalent ounces sold and transferred, resulting in an operating profit from continuing operations of £2.9m for the year.  This result does not benefit from the increased processing capacity that was achieved at the Kilimapesa Gold Mine towards the end of FY 2017, with operational profitability achieved during last two months of FY 2017.  Accordingly, the Company believes it is well placed to build upon production and profitability during FY 2018.

 

The Company's strategy is focussed on utilising cash flow generated from its flagship gold recovery and mining operations to self-fund the sustainable growth and expansion of its niche gold recovery business model internationally. The Company is also committed to increasing its primary mining production output through acquisition / gaining interests in producing or near-production assets, preferably in Africa.  Goldplat retains exposure to a small exploration project in Ghana, in which Ashanti Gold Corp. is earning an interest via an earn-in option agreement.
