The acquisition consisted of US$100 million (A$139 million) in staged cash and share payments.

“We are pleased to close the Kiaka and Toega transactions and welcome both B2Gold and GMAS as West African shareholders,” Mr Hyde commented.

“West African is now unhedged with no senior secured debt, has resources totalling 11.9 million ounces of gold and aims to be a +400,000 ounce per annum gold producer by 2025.”

WAF now plans to begin early works in Q1 2022 which includes upgrading site access roads and constructing camp facilities and community projects.
