The Bougouni project area can be accessed through an existing sealed road from Bamako. Since the project is located in a remote location, internationally sourced goods, reagents, and consumables will be delivered to the site through Abidjan or San Pedro ports in Côte d’Ivoire. Kodal Minerals also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Mali Lithium, the developer of the Goulamina lithium project in the same region, to review the establishment of certain common infrastructure facilities for both projects in January 2020.
