WGM is pleased to announce that the firm has been selected to oversee a full scale gold exploration program in Zamfara State, Nigeria. Hanwo Industry Corporation Ltd. (“Hanwo”) commissioned WGM to undertake the comprehensive five part program comprised of data acquisition and compilation; site preparation; field surveys including detailed geological mapping, sampling, trenching, as well as IP and magnetic geophysical surveys; QP oversight of a 5,000m diamond drill program; and provision of a National Instrument 43-101 technical report on program completion.
“We are delighted Hanwo has entrusted WGM with this initiative,” commented Joe Hinzer, WGM President and Project Director. “While mining only accounts for 0.3% of Nigeria’s GDP, privatization efforts in the late 1990’s have resulted in renewed interest from investors, sparking a resurgence of gold exploration not seen since the turn of the century. Our responsibility is not only to oversee the successful execution of the program, but to ensure that it is done so with the care and diligence expected of today’s explorers.”
