RosCan’s initial compilation of technical information for the Kandiole Project has identified several areas of immediate interest. An exploration program consisting of prospecting, mapping and sampling of the entire land position was designed with the objective of identifying areas for more detailed exploration, including drilling. Ground control for the mapping and field work will utilize updated satellite photographs. This exploration program has been on-going since early April and will continue until the seasonal rains, which are expected to start in early July. Exploration results will be released as received.

The exploration team is led by RosCan’s President and CEO, Gregory Isenor, P.Geo, who has again brought together his experienced West African exploration team consisting of: Jean-Marc Gagnon, P.Eng, MBA with 20 years of experience in West Africa, and, Touba Mining SARL. This team has worked together for almost 15 years, is highly experienced and has been very successful in working in this area and in this geological environment.

COMMENTARY

Mr. Isenor, stated, “I am extremely pleased that we have been able to acquire such a large and strategic land position in west Mali, an area we know well. I have just returned from Mali, where I visited all of the permits and many of the orpailleaur workings and I am extremely impressed with the potential of the area. These permits have impressive potential for the discovery of large gold deposits, as demonstrated by the many producing mines, new deposits and recent discoveries in the area. This is an area where we have excellent relationships and have had great success in the past.

Our exploration teams are in the field and doing an excellent job. Exploration to date has been positive and detailed gridding of soil and termite sampling is in progress in selected areas. Several sites of artisanal workings have also been identified and will be locations of immediate interest”.
