Ian Cunningham-Dunlop, P.Eng., Senior Vice President Exploration, is the Company's designated Qualified Person for this news release within the meaning of NI 43-101, and has reviewed and verified that the information contained in this release is accurate and approves of the written disclosure of same. The nature and spacing of the RAB drilling to date does not allow for the exact orientation of the gold zones to be determined, and their true widths are unknown. As a result, there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and that it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource. Samples were assayed by BIGS Global Laboratories in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, with a limited number of check assays by ALS Chemex, also in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. BIGS Global assays were by Fire Assay of a 30 gram (1 assay ton) charge with AAS finish. ALS Chemex assays were also Fire Assay with AAS finish and repeats of all AAS assays over 1.0 g/t by Fire Assay with gravimetric finish. Control samples (accredited standards, blanks and duplicate samples at the rig and preparation stage) were inserted on a regular basis every ten samples. Results were monitored on receipt of assays.
