SPDD18-04 was drilled at 45 degrees inclination and 117 degrees azimuth, to fill in a 100m gap in drilling on the southern end of Pokukrom East, and SGDD18-05, at the same orientation as SPDD18-04 was completed on a soil anomaly in the North east corner of the Nkansu area.

Quality Assurance, Quality Control and Qualified Person

The drill holes reported in this press release were drilled using HQ (63.5 mm) and NQ (47.6 mm) sized diamond drill bits.  Company security is provided at the drill site. Contractors working for Pelangio conducted all logging and sampling. The core was logged, marked up for sampling using standard lengths of approximately one metre, then divided into equal halves using a diamond saw. One half of the core was left in the original core box and stored in a secure location at the Pelangio compound in Tepa, Ghana. The other half was sampled, placed into sealed bags and securely stored at the site until it was shipped to  Intertek Minerals Limited (Intertek), laboratory in Tarkwa, Ghana. The core was dried and crushed by Intertek and a 150 gram pulp was prepared from the coarse crushed material. Intertek conducted routine gold analysis using a 50 gram charge and fire assaying with atomic absorption finish. Quality control procedures included the systematic insertion of blanks, duplicates and sample standards into the sample stream at the rate of one per every 20 samples.  In addition, Intertek inserted one preparation blank and a certified reference sample in for every 20 samples, and ran one duplicate analysis every 20 samples.

The exploration program at the Manfo Property is overseen by Warren Bates, P. Geo. (APGO #0211 Ontario), a Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101.  Mr. Bates has verified and approved the data disclosed in this release, including the sampling, analytical and test data underlying the information.
