Our Countries of Operation
Amara has assets at all stages of the development pipeline and across three countries in West Africa.
Kalsaka/Sega is a producing mine in Burkina Faso, which is targeting 40,000 ounces of production in 2013. It generates cash flow, which funds Amara's general and administrative (G&A) costs and underpins the Company's exploration expenditure across West Africa.
Baomahun and Yaoure are Amara's growth projects. Baomahun is a development project in Sierra Leone. The Feasibility Study for the project was completed in Q2 2013 and generated average annual production of 93,460 ounces at a total cash cost of US$799/oz over an 11.5 year life of mine. It will transform Amara into a more sustainable producer.
Yaoure is an advanced exploration project in Côte d’Ivoire. It is a large scale, shallow-dipping sulphide deposit underlying the previously mined oxide resources. Yaoure has excellent existing infrastructure, which is expected to result in reduced capex and operating costs.
Amara owns three early-stage exploration licences in Liberia: Cestos, Kle Kle and Zwedru. Cestos is the most advanced of the three, with encouraging results received from drilling and trenching.
