About Awalé Resources

Awalé is a diligent and systematic mineral exploration company focused on the discovery of large high-grade gold and copper-gold deposits. The Company undertakes exploration activities in the underexplored parts of Côte d’Ivoire. Awalé’s exploration success to date has culminated in a fully funded earn-in Joint Venture with Newmont covering one permit and one application (the ‘Odienné Project JV’), where four significant gold and gold-copper-silver-molybdenum discoveries have been made.

The Odienné Project JV is located within Awalé’s greater Odienné Copper-Gold Project (the ‘Project’) which consists of 2462 km 2 of tenure in the Northwest of Côte d’Ivoire. The Newmont JV consists of 400km 2 of granted tenure and 400km 2 under application, or approximately ⅓ of Awalé’s total holding in the district. The Company announced 26 g/t gold over 57m , including 45.7 g/t gold over 32m from 165m downhole at the Charger Prospect and the discoveries have significant scope for growth and resource development. The Project has multiple pipeline prospects that have similar geochemical fingerprints to Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) and intrusive related mineral systems that offers significant potential for district scale discoveries.
