Managing Director Damian Conboy said: "This first systematic exploration programme conducted at our Ethiopian Wayu Boda Gold Licence has provided us with a stronger understanding of the mineralisation on site. Although the grade is lower at surface, the high grades recovered from sampling the deeper artisanal working are exciting, and should be investigated further through drilling.

"Additionally, with work to date only focussed on the areas close to the artisanal workings, we hope to broaden our exploration activities going forward and delineate further targets and I look forward to providing shareholders with a detailed exploration plan for 2013 at the appropriate time."

The share price 11.36% to 1.23p by 14:12.
