Bernard Aylward, chief executive at mining and exploration company Kodal Minerals (LON:KOD) talks to Proactive Investors about the recent acquisition of its West African gold portfolio, which includes eight mineral licences and two licence applications covering a collection of highly prospective gold exploration targets in Côte d'Ivoire and Mali.
"The company has changed focus. We are now gold-focused, West African explorers but we are maintaining our lookout for other projects. We focus on Africa but we are assessing all opportunities," Aylward explains, while adding he is seeing a lot of positive newsflow for gold recently.
"West Africa is a great place to operate from," he adds, highlighting the low operating costs.
