"We are very pleased that the mobilisation of the equipment for the drill programme at Bibemi, which was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has begun,” Tim Livesey, Oriole chief executive said in a statement.

“We are confident that Bibemi will continue to build on the good results we've already yielded from the rock chip sampling and trenching programmes, and it will be great to get some vertical extension to the significant trends the team have already identified on surface.”

Livesey noted that with the completion of the planned programme, the company will have satisfied investment criteria of its earn-in deal to seal its 90% interest in the Bibemi asset.

"We look forward to sharing the results of our drill programme with our shareholders in due course," he added.
