Why Invest?

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 based on the 2016 resource update expected in September 2016 a revised Phase 1 feasibility for the Bomboré project economics will be released as soon as possible in order to determine the next stage of development for the project. Management has the experience and ability to build a team that would bring this deposit into production pending a full project financing.
