Boosting capability to add value

“Hugh’s expertise has been well demonstrated in global companies such as BHP Billiton, as well as in Africa-focused enterprises such as Birimian Ltd.
“We are delighted to welcome Hugh to the board and to the technical team.
“He will join a group of experienced professionals that have taken assets from acquisition to discovery in less than two years and will boost that capability to add value.”

RC drilling at Poa prospect
The company started a 2,000-metre reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at the recently defined Poa gold prospect on Divole East exploration permit in Burkino Faso in May.
Drilling is aimed at defining bedrock gold mineralisation under multiple shallow geochemical anomalies at Poa and will continue at the Dassa deposits at Divole West where shallow mineralisation remains open down-dip.
A drilling program of further shallow targets on 100%-owned ground is also planned and subsequently on the permits to be explored through an agreement between Arrow and Trevali Mining Corp (TSE:TV) (OTCMKTS:TREVF).
Drilling is expected to continue through quarter four 2021, pausing only during the rainy season to ensure safe and efficient operations.
