Roscan completes Mali project purchase, stock up
Roscan Gold (TSXV: ROS) has completed its previously announced acquisition of the Dabia South project in Mali from fellow Canadian mining junior Komet Resources (TSXV: KMT).

“One of these targets has a shallow historical estimate which extends to 80 m depth. Our exploration team on the ground are finalizing drill campaigns on some of these targets, which will be incorporated as part of our expanded 45,000 km 2020 work program,” she added.
