Asante Gold Corporation is a Ghana focused gold exploration and development company headquartered in Vancouver. Ghana is Africa’s number two gold producer and ninth in the World, and hosts numerous +10 million ounce gold deposits, including Obuasi, Tarkwa, and Ahafo. Some of the world’s leading gold producers are active here including Newmont, AngloGold Ashanti, Goldfields and Kinross. The new Asanko Gold Mine (former PMI Gold Obotan) is now in production at over 200,000 oz per year.
The Board is highly experienced, Chaired by Ned Goodman (Inductee Canadian Mining Hall of Fame), Douglas MacQuarrie President & CEO (former CEO PMI Gold), Bashir Ahmed VP (former Mine Manger of AngloGold Ashanti Obuasi Mine), Alex Heath (former investment banker Salman Partners) and Florian Riedl-Riedenstein (former investment banker). Our Advisors to the Board include Alan McKerron former Director New Business for Anglo American; Nana Prah former advisor to the President of Ghana and Chairman of Perseus Ghana; and Eric Ewen Prospector and discoverer of Keegan (now Asanko Gold) 5 Moz Esaase orebody.
Our main focus is to put our high grade Kubi Gold mine back into production as an underground mine at circa 30koz to 40koz per year, via an exploration decline and toll milling. We are also exploring for the next big one - on our Keyhole concessions (optioned from Sikasante Mining Company Limited); Betenase concession (optioned from Perseus Ghana) and Fahiakoba concession; and, subject to final closing and additional third party and governmental transfers and approvals, an additional eight concessions - two adjoining Kubi and six along strike to the south west of the the Asanko gold Mine. These licenses have been explored in the past by many companies including BHP, Nevsun Resources and PMI Gold Corporation with many significant drill ‘discovery’ holes already outlined and requiring follow up detailed exploration. We plan to capitalize on this gold-rich and growing mining environment by continuing to build our assets through exploration, development and acquisitions.
