In February, West African acquired a second-hand 1.6Mtpa heap leach plant as part of its plan to fasttrack development of Mankarga 5. Last week the Company delivered the results of a Scoping Study which demonstrated a low capital cost and high margin robust heap leach starter project (ASX,TSXV: 29/7/14).
The Company is focussed on near-term production with its immediate attention on the Mankarga 5 deposit and existing nearby gold prospects. The Company aims to be a +50,000oz per annum gold producer by the end of 2015 via a low-cost heap leach starter project.
