TORONTO, Aug. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- African Gold Group, Inc. (TSX-V: AGG) (“AGG” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Minxcon Consulting (Pty) Limited (“Minxcon”), has been awarded the contract to oversee and manage the upcoming diamond drilling campaign in order to confirm and add to the current resource.

Minxcon is an Africa-focused advisory company, specializing in geological project management, mineral resource estimation, geological modelling and data validation.

Minxcon oversaw the previous drilling campaign at Kobada in 2018. “We are very pleased to have signed Minxcon for the next drilling campaign as geological project managers,” says Dr. Andreas Rompel, Vice President Exploration of AGG. “Minxcon has shown their competence and understanding of the project during the last phase and identified potential extensions to the current strike length which require further follow up drilling, and we are happy for them being on board.”

“We are delighted to continue our relationship with AGG at the Kobada project which is shaping up to be a significant resource,” says Uwe Engelmann, Director of Geology and Exploration, Minxcon. “We believe that following on from this campaign, Kobada will be well positioned to move into the next phase of construction.”

Minxcon will undertake a review of the existing drill hole database and then design, oversee and manage the next drilling phase, the subsequent sampling, assaying and QA/QC process, the geological modelling and the resource evaluation at our Kobada project. Once completed this work will be incorporated into both the updated geological model and definitive feasibility study. Minxcon anticipates having personnel on site before the end of August in order to fast-track the program.
