VANCOUVER, April 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Awalé Resources Limited ("Awalé" or the "Company") (TSXV: ARIC) reports:
In light of developments regarding COVID-19 Côte d'Ivoire has implemented internal control measures in an attempt to contain and minimize transmission.
In the interest of safety and wellbeing of its employees and their respective families, the Company has temporarily wound back planned drilling and field programs and has implemented new protocols and operating procedures. The company is working with local staff to re-establish planned work programs in a safe working environment. Furthermore, costs have been reduced with cash contribution from all salaried employees to assist in getting through this difficult unknown period. This loyalty is commendable as these efforts help ensure the team remains fully employed, until a normalizing of conditions in the field can be achieved.
On a positive note we have soil and auger geochemistry samples still to be received from both the Odienné Empire gold discovery and Bondoukou targets. Refining drill and exploration targets from this data will ensure the company rapidly gains momentum for drilling and target refinement at Odienné and Bondoukou as soon as conditions allow for us to get on the ground. In the interim our project sites remain secure and are continually monitored.
ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD
AWALE RESOURCES LIMITED.
Glen Parsons, President and CEO
