Business as usual‘ for Murchison

EXPLORER Murchison United NL said last week’s coup d’état in Mauritania had not disrupted its operations and business was “trading as usual”. The West Perth-based company has spoken to its agents in Mauritania who reported that the capital Nouakchott was calm following the August 6 arrest of President Sidi Ould Cheikh Abdallahi. Troops overthrew Mauritania’s president in a military coup last Wednesday after he tried to sack senior army officers accused of being behind a political crisis destabilising the country. Murchison has six uranium exploration licences in the Republic of Mauritania, which has large tracts of prospective exploration ground, including historic uranium prospects located within Reguibate Massive, a part of the West African Shield. In December 2007, Murchison completed its first drilling program in Mauritania, which was carried out on one of its licences in the Bir En Nar area of the Zednes region. A new council called the State Council has been formed in Mauritania under the leadership of general Ould Abdel Aziz, which Murchison understands will oversee the parliament until fresh elections are held.
