The ancient Empire of Ghana was located to the north and west of current-day Ghana, and its name was adopted as a reference to the descendants of the Empire. In 1957 Ghana, known as the Gold Coast, became the first country in colonial Africa to gain its independence. Ghana practices a multiparty parliamentary democracy based on a constitution. By regional standards, it is a well-administered country, widely regarded as a model for political and economic reform in Africa.

The Asankrangwa gold belt is situated approximately midway between the Ashanti and Sefwi gold belts in Ghana. Our holdings are located in the northern segment of this gold belt and are comprised of five contiguous gold concessions - Twedee, Moseaso, Manso Nkwanta, Manso Atwere and Assuowunu. The four concessions occupy a total of 456.2 sq. km and contain 24 km of known mineralized strike length.
