Roxgold: Permitting Approved To Develop Bagassi South Project
Roxgold Inc. (TSX: ROXG) says it has received the necessary permit approval from the Burkina Faso Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development to develop the Bagassi South Project. “The approval of the environmental and social impact assessment for Bagassi South allows us to confirm our development decision and begin mine development and construction for our first growth project on the Yaramoko concession,” says John Dorward, president and chief executive officer. Underground mine development and construction activities should begin in the first quarter, Roxgold says. With approval of the ESIA, the company has filed an application for an extension of its mining permit to include the Bagassi South deposits, which marks the final step in the permitting process. A government decision on the extension is expected in the second quarter.
