CÔTE D’IVOIRE KOYEKRO PROJECT
Today Cote d’Ivoire is among the fastest-growing economies in Africa, and one of the most dynamic in West Africa. Côte d’Ivoire introduced a progressive new mining code in 2014, and on-going infrastructure improvements are making the country one of the more investor-friendly countries in Africa. There is a strong desire to diversify the economy with gold and other mineral products. Exporting electricity is playing an increasing role in this diversification. Underexplored until the last decade it is finally delivering a plethora of exciting new discoveries.
The country has 6 major producing gold mines and a number of near-term development projects including Ity 4.5 Moz and +1Moz Agbou (Endeavour), Yaoure 3.4 Moz and Sissingue (Perseus), Tongon 2.7 Moz (Barrick) and Bonicro (Allied Gold). Other mineral commodities that offer the potential for economic development in Côte d’Ivoire include diamonds, petroleum, natural gas, copper, iron, cobalt, bauxite, tantalum, lithium and silica sand.
Koyekro Application, Côte d’Ivoire
The Koyekro Application (398km2) is located near the western margin of the Haute Comoé Basin in south central Cote d’Ivoire. There is little evidence of historical work in the area. Regional mapping suggests that the area is underlain mostly by meta-sediments with a number of internal intrusive bodies.
All three applications cover prospective areas and represent great greenfields exploration opportunities in proven areas.
