New Gold Discovery in Ivory Coast Ignites Excitement in the Industry

A recent gold discovery in the Odienné region of Ivory Coast has sparked excitement in the gold mining industry. Canadian company Awalé Resources announced the discovery of a highly promising gold deposit on the site, along with significant concentrations of copper. This new find, named “BBM,” is particularly noteworthy as it had not been explored previously, making it a virgin territory for mining.

According to Awalé Resources’ CEO, the potential of the BBM deposit is immense, with its current stretch of 8km showing great promise. The gold content in the ore ranges from 1.1g/t to 5.8g/t, while the copper content is also very encouraging, ranging from 0.2% to 0.5%. This discovery further solidifies Ivory Coast’s position as a leading gold producer in Africa.

The Ivory Coast government has been proactive in developing its gold mining sector, implementing various mechanisms to ensure the proper exploitation of the country’s abundant gold deposits. The Odienné project is one of the largest and most significant endeavors in Ivory Coast’s gold mining industry. International mining companies are currently competing for mining permits in the region, recognizing its invaluable potential.

Beyond its thriving mining industry, Ivory Coast is also positioning itself as a prime investment destination. With its upcoming hosting of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations and its socio-political stability, the country has all the necessary ingredients for rapid development. Many economic analysts believe that Ivory Coast has the potential to become a superpower in Africa, thanks to its vast resources and opportunities in various sectors.

As ongoing drilling projects continue to uncover more treasures in the Odienné region, Ivory Coast can look forward to further growth and prosperity in its gold mining industry. With its vast reserves and an increasing number of international companies showing interest, Ivory Coast is set to solidify its position as a hub for gold production in West Africa.
