"African Gold Group (TSX: AGG) is currently advancing the Kobada gold project located in Mali, with a completed economic assessment and plans to pursue equity and debt financing. Data indicates that the Kobada Gold project will have a low CAPEX and OPEX with a 511,000 ounce gold reserve.
Declan Franzmann, President and CEO of African Gold Group (TSX: AGG) is currently leading his company to advance the Kobada Gold Project in Mali as their flagship project.
Franzmann has a long history in mining. He said, “I’m a mining engineer. I have been in mining for the last 24 years. I have done a mixed bag of things; from working as a miner underground, to running an entire operation, to a managing director role. Most of my experience is in gold.”
With his experience, African Gold Group has been focused on their Kobada Gold Project in Mali. Franzmann said, “We have been doing quite a bit of work this last few years in quite difficult market conditions. We pushed the project through a preliminary economic assessment back in 2014 and now we have followed through with a feasibility study on the project, which really confirms the findings of the PEA. The feasibility study is mostly focused on our funding initiatives for the project. So in the last two years, we have managed to pull the mining license together, and have managed to get all of the environmental permits for the project. We have put together a 511,000 ounce reserve on the deposit as well. Really the focus now is to move forward with our funding initiatives and to get into a development stage.”"
