“We are continuing with our strategy to acquire high potential permits in an area of multi-million-ounce gold producers and existing deposits of west Mali,” said Greg Isenor, President and CEO of RosCan. “The objective is to assemble a substantial land package applying the approach that has been successfully used by our experienced acquisition team in the past. I look forward to assembling this land package over the coming months.”

The deal will see a series of six payments made to Touba, with an aggregate of CAD$80,000 over a three-year period.

Further, RosCan is looking to acquire additional properties within Mali in the aim of strengthening its foothold in the region.
