Thor Explorations holds a 100% interest in the Segilola Gold Project located in Osun State of Nigeria and has a 70% economic interest in the Douta Gold Project located in south-eastern Senegal.

Mining is underway, with 700,000 tonnes of waste mined and 30,000 tonnes of ore stockpiled in preparation for Process Plant commissioning. The pit is fully prepared for mining operations, with pre-strip nearing completion.

The mining fleet is now fully commissioned and production is expected to quickly ramp up to its design capacity. All the necessary permits are in place and blasting operations have started as the Company moves into the harder transitional and fresh ore zones.

Segun Lawson, President & CEO, stated:

“We are pleased to reach this significant milestone on the Segilola Gold Project. Once again, I would like to thank the entire team, which has done an excellent job amidst the difficult circumstances of the global pandemic to reach this key step in the development of the Segilola Gold Project as we gear up towards production. We continue to work towards, and look forward to, first gold pour before the end of the month.”
