Tim McCutcheon commented: "Nangodi as a project has been explored by several operators over the past 20 years. Additionally, it was an operating mine in the first half of the last century. Although to-date there has not been a gold resource published for the property, it is more de-risked than it seems given the volume of past drilling and trenching. Our intent in 2013 is to link together the work done by past operators and compile all the data into one resource number to give investors a better idea of where Nangodi stands today and what potential it has for resource expansion in the future. In addition, Nangodi is in a very prospective neighborhood with several adjacent targets that could further increase the resource, Zupeliga being the best studied of them. Much like Kinross' Chirano success story in Ghana, Nangodi seems to have a network of several satellite zones that are all close enough to potentially be one mining operation in the future."
