Investing in Africa

In line with our commitment to owning and operating high quality assets, Blue Gold is focused on long-life sustainable operations and projects clustered in the world’s most prospective and largest gold producing country.

Bogoso Prestea Gold Mine

Bogoso Prestea Gold Mine in the prolific Ashanti gold belt in Ghana, has been operational since 1912, and is one of the largest and most famous gold mines in Ghana. The mine has produced 9 million oz Au from its 82km strike that makes it one of the largest mining concessions in Ghana.

Blue Gold is developing the Sulphide resource on the concession to access the 4m oz Au within its NI 43-101 compliant resource as well as exploring the balance of the concession to identify promising new targets. Bogoso Prestea has the potential to be a world leading producer of gold for multiple generations to come.
