Prospection for GOLD in Guinea Conakry - Phoenix Precious Metals
We began our journey in December 2016 in Guinea Conakry, our exploration team spent 3 weeks with the well known geologist Norman Bailie*. We started in the region of Mandiana and Siguiri, selecting the prospect area and sampling the streams for indicators of gold bearing minerals. Once something was found, more detailed sampling followed to try and narrow down the source upstream.  The rock types and mineral traces are analyzed. Then remote sensing technologies are applied to try and understand the underlying geology.  Finally after coordinating all the results and selection of targets, drilling is initiated. (*) Mr. Norman Bailie is Group Exploration Manager of Centamin Plc since January 2017. Mr. Bailie joined Centamin Plc in January 2017. He has over 25 years' industry experience in providing exploration and resource consultancy to all levels of exploration and mining companies in West, East and Central Africa and South America. He is an accredited Chartered Professional Geologist and Manager through the Geol Soc UK and AusIMM, and a fellow of IOM3 UK and SEG USA as well as a competent person under JORC/ 43-101 criteria.

Endeavour Mining targeting top spot among Africa’s gold players
Neil Woodyer, chief executive of Endeavour Mining (TSE:EDV), believes the company can become Africa’s premier gold miner over the long run. Endeavour owns five gold mines producing 580,000 ounces per year in Côte d’Ivoire, Mali and Ghana and Burkina Faso. Meanwhile its Houndé Project in Burkina Faso is fully permitted and has a 2.1mln ounce reserve and the potential to produce 190,000 ounces per year over 10 years. Speaking to Proactive, Woodyer says the business is undervalued but should start to attract more interest from investors by growing cash flow and profits, extending mine lives by adding reserves & resources and seeing an up-tick in the gold price.

Earlier, thousands of workers near Lonmin's Marikana mine - the scene of the police killing of 34 strikers in 2012 - jeered when they were told about the tabled offer. The country's AMCU union is seeking a doubling in miners wages to around 800 euros a month. The move to reject the pay offer prolongs a week of industrial action which is already estimated to have hit around 40 percent of the global supply of platinum.

RAPAPORT, JUNE 20, 2012: Creating the Ethical Diamond Pipeline
RAPAPORT... The Diamond Development Initiative (DDI) seeks public comment on its draft standards for the Development Diamonds™ ethical certification project until July 31, 2012. The Development Diamond Standards™ (DDS) project is a collaborative effort with support from civil society organizations, governments and industry. It will help ensure that more than 1.5 million artisanal and small-scale diamond miners in Africa and South America, who produce an estimated 15 percent of global gem diamonds and constitute the most vulnerable part of the jewelry supply chain, become a part of broader efforts to promote responsible business practices. Historically, this sector has been the most affected by adverse social and environmental impact. Until now, most responsible practices certification schemes have been unable to cover artisanal and small-scale mining, because the miners largely operate informally and cannot realistically access standards designed primarily for formal entities. The Development Diamond Standards will ensure that artisanal diamond miners have achievable, realistic, and rigorous standards for their special needs. Ultimately, however, the goal is to integrate various initiatives so that all segments of the industry are covered by credible, independently verifiable ethical standards. This collaborative approach will help ensure cohesion and clarity for cjeff coreyonsumers. The Tiffany & Co. Foundation provided major support for the DDS project since its inception. Additional funding has been received from Brilliant Earth, Cartier International, Germany and the JCK Industry Fund. As one of DDI's key projects, the Development Diamond Standards™ also build upon the general support provided to DDI by individual jewelry consumers, the public, industry members in Europe and in North America, civil society and governments. "At this stage, the main goal is to demonstrate proof-of-concept by piloting the Development Diamond Standards™ on a small scale—and then tracing the diamonds produced from the mining site through to the retail end of the market," said Ian Smillie, the chair of DDI's board. "This is a very complex process and a lot of work still needs to be done, but the benefits to some of the world's poorest people could be enormous." The standards are now being field tested in Sierra Leone, with planned expansion to other countries. The goal is to refine the draft standards by testing their substantive provisions in environments that reflect actual conditions on the ground, with independent third-party verification and a supply chain traceability process from mine-to-market that is credible and practical for the diamond and jewelry industry as well. Dorothée Gizenga, the executive director of DDI, said, "Over the development of this project, we've stressed the importance of a standards system that is credible, achievable by artisanal diamond miners, and viable for downstream actors in the global diamond pipeline as well. This means that the input we receive from the DDS consultation will complement the feedback DDI is getting from the practical application and testing of the standards on the ground."

Roger Murphy, chief executive of Sula Iron & Gold PLC (LON: SULA) updates Proactive on progress at their Ferensola project in Sierra Leone. They've now sent the first batch of borehole samples from the current drilling programme off for assay. Sula has two drill rigs onsite. The first rig is drilling additional holes at Sanama Hill, where the target, as defined by SRK Consulting Ltd, is 5-to-7 mln tonnes grading at between 4 grams per tonne and 8 grams between 0.8 mln and 1.5 mln ounces of gold. The second rig is focusing on Sula's Eastern Target, comprising a 4 km long ridge, which has a very strong Induced Polarisation anomaly, and which Sula believes is indicative of pyrite mineralisation.

'I'm really going to do something with this' - Sula's new CEO on Ferensola project
Sula Iron and Gold’s brought on board a new investor after conditionally raising $400,000. Madini Occidental, which is a private, Seychelles-incorporated company, is owned by Madini Minerals and private high net worth investor Ian Schofield. Sula's new CEO Roger Murphy tells Proactive: ''We're really excited. We're focused mainly on the gold which we think is very attractive and $400,000 including a significant chunk of my own money gives us 26% of the company''. ''Our focus is mainly going to be on the capital markets side - we think we have a good project in Sierra Leone with a good management team in the country, very good relationships. What we bring to the party apart from capital is the ability to raise the profile of the company and that's what I'm intending to do over the next year or two'', Murphy said. In terms of why he decided to invest, he said there's two reasons. First is the quality of the gold project and secondly is the very low valuation of the company right now.
Sula CEO 'pleased with support' for Ferensola funding
Sula Iron & Gold plc (LON:SULA) has announced plans to bring in up to around £1.47mln via a fundraising to further advance its Ferensola gold deposit in Sierra Leone. The cash will be used for further diamond drilling at Sanama Hill, which already hosts a JORC exploration target. CEO Roger Murphy tells Proactive: ''We've already raised £1.17 mln and now we're providing a further £300,000 open offer to allow minorities to participate on the same terms as the high net worths who've come in and supported our company'. ''I was in Sierra Leone recently with my team from Sula and also some of the geologists from Madini - we've identified a drill program that we want to go forward with. That drill program, funded by this money will start in January'' Murphy also discussed some results they've had back from their much larger Eastern Target - including findings of visible gold. ''I'm not sure the market fully understands how important and positive this is. All of our gold so far has been found at Sanama Hill where we already have an exploration target between 0.8 and 1.5 million ounces.'' ''We identified from geophysics that the Eastern Target looked prospective for gold ... as a result of some good work done by our geological team we've found some rock which contained visible gold''.
