In 2012 Haren Consulting Pty Ltd (Haren) collaborated with orelogy to review the Ampella Mining Ltd Konkera Gold Project in Burkina Faso.
The primary objective of this review is to provide assurance at a corporate level that resources reported by Ampella are estimated in a manner consistent with internationally recognised guidelines and regulations.
In Q4 2012 Ampella engaged orelogy to undertake an open pit optimisation study on their Doubema and Foumbiri gold resources at Batie West Project. The results then could be utilised as a guide for identification of the most appropriate zones throughout the mining prospects for further drilling/exploration efforts.
During Q1 and Q2 2013 orelogy undertook an additional work for Batie West Gold Project as a part of Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS). During this period Ampella commissioned orelogy to conduct an Owner-Mining study and provide mining cost estimate based on an owner operator arrangement.
