On June 2, 2015, African Gold Group Inc. received the environmental approvals for a mining operation at its 100-per-cent-owned Kobada gold project, located in Mali, West Africa.

This is an important milestone in the development of Kobada as the granting of the environmental approval is the penultimate step that precedes the granting of the actual mining license, which the Company expects to obtain in the near future. 

ENVIRONMENTAL APPROVAL 

The grant of the Environmental Permit by the Malian Government's Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development follows on from the work the Company commenced in June 2014. This work included environmental baseline studies and the development of a full Environmental and Social Impact Assessment ("ESIA") which was developed in conjunction with the Company's local consultant.

A Community Development Plan was completed in parallel with the ESIA. This document outlines the Company's future undertakings to assist in the economic development of the local communities, that are adjacent to the Project, and was developed in consultation with the local communities, the Malian Government and other interest groups.
