Exploration

Burkina Faso

Overview

Centamin completed its recommended all-share takeover offer for ASX-listed Ampella Mining Ltd on 24 February 2014, thus gaining control of an extensive licence holding over a highly prospective and underexplored +100km trend of gold mineralization in Burkina Faso, as well as further exploration properties across the border in Côte d'Ivoire.

The exploration strategy is to systematically explore and drill-test the numerous targets along the 160km length of greenstone belt contained within our extensive 2,200km2 licence holding.

Whilst these districts hold potential for several deposit types, our immediate objective is to discover and define areas of near-surface and high-grade economic mineralisation.

Positive results to date have seen a number of priority areas emerge which will remain the focus for resource growth.
