Perseus Mining Limited (ASX/TSX Code: PRU) has forged a reputation as one of the world's most successful gold explorers. Focused on under-explored gold belts in West Africa, we achieved our goal to become a producer during 2011 and started commercial production on 1 January 2012.
Our Edikan Gold Mine (EGM), formerly referred to as the Central Ashanti Gold Project (CAGP) and Ayanfuri, has 5.6Moz of Measured and Indicated gold resources, including reserves of 3.4 million ounces of gold, and 1.7Moz Inferred gold resources.
A further 1.4Moz of Indicated gold resources, including 0.66Moz of Reserves, and 0.52Moz of Inferred gold resources are held on our other West African projects (Grumesa and Tengrela).
We started production from the Edikan Gold Mine in Ghana in the 3rd Quarter of 2011. If proven economic by the current feasibility study, the Company is targeting production at the Sissingue Gold Project in Cote D'Ivoire by the end of 2013.
