Gr Engineering has been active in West Africa over the past five years, performing design, engineering and construction works for more than ten projects in the region, including several comparable to the Wa development, Azumah said.
Azumah said it expects to report a maiden minerals resource in the June Quarter.
At 1:15PM, WST, Azumah stocks were up 2 per cent, at 25 cents.
