The company has formed a new local subsidiary, Oriole Cameroon SARL, and has submitted applications for a district-scale land package in the centre of the country.
The total amount under application comes to around 3,500 square kilometres.
"As we indicated back in May, our success to date in Cameroon has given us the confidence to build on our existing footprint in the country to capitalise on our position as first movers in this new frontier for gold exploration,” said chief executive Tim Livesey.
"During our technical review meetings in July, the team identified and ranked seven key areas within Cameroon where we felt the geological potential merited us staking new licences. We have now submitted eight new licence applications covering a district-scale land package in our highest ranked areas.”
