Asante Gold Corporation is a Ghana focused gold exploration and development company headquartered in Vancouver. Ghana is Africa’s largest 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, Perseus and Kinross.
The Board is highly experienced: Douglas MacQuarrie President & CEO (former CEO PMI Gold/now owned by Asanko Gold), Bashir Ahmed VP (former Mine Manager of AngloGold Ashanti Obuasi Mine) and Alex Heath (former investment banker Salman Partners). Our Advisors to the Board include Alan McKerron former Director New Business for Anglo American; Nana Prah, Special Advisor to the Government of Ghana and Chairman of Perseus Ghana; Kevin Thomson (former Exploration Manager Newmont and Perseus); Eric Ewen, Prospector and discoverer of Keegan (now Asanko Gold) 5 Moz Esaase orebody; and Akbar Hassanally formerly an Investment Advisor for corporate and global institutional clients in Europe and the Middle East.
Our main focus is to put our high grade Kubi Gold mine back into production at from 25 to 50koz per year using either conventional decline access underground mining, or as a Green Mining operation utilizing the new ‘SMD’ direct mining from surface using large bore drilling. We are also exploring for the next big one - on our Keyhole concessions (optioned from Sikasante Mining Company Limited); Betenase Option (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 Asanko/Goldfields 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 development, exploration and acquisitions.
