West African Resources Limited is focused on creating shareholder value through the acquisition, exploration and development of gold projects in West Africa.
Since pouring first gold at our Sanbrado Gold Operation in Burkina Faso in March 2020, West African is expanding its operations, acquiring 90% of the Kiaka gold project in Burkina Faso from B2 Gold Corp and partner GAMS-Mining F&I Ltd in 2021.
Kiaka’s feasibility study confirmed it is a long-life, low-cost gold project averaging 219,000oz of gold production per annum for 18.5 years from 2025. Early works construction, design and planning are underway at Kiaka, including camp, access and clearance roads, site security infrastructure and award and order of project mills.
Major works are expected to commence in early 2023, and Kiaka is on track for first gold in 2025.
A feasibility study is underway for the Toega project, which has a 1.3Moz gold Resource.
