Orezone Gold Corporation (ORE.TSXV) represents an excellent opportunity to invest in an emerging West African developer. The Company’s Bomboré gold deposit has the flexibility to be developed in stages in order to reduce the initial capital requirements. The Company received approval for the Bomboré mining permit application in August 2016 and in July 2018 filed an independent National Instrument (“NI”) 43-101 technical report entitled “Feasibility Study of the Bomboré Gold Project, Burkina Faso”.  Management has the experience and ability to build a team that would bring this deposit into production pending a full project financing.
