West African plans second mine by 2025

ASX-listed West African Resources has released a feasibility study for its Kiaka gold project, in Burkina Faso, telling delegates at the Diggers and Dealers conference that it was aiming for first production in 2025.

The feasibility study estimated that the project would require a capital investment of $430-million, producing an average of 233 000 oz/y of gold in the first five years of its operation, and 219 000 oz/y over the remaining 18.5-year mine-life.
