The Kalia Project consists of two large iron rich mineralised deposits; Kalia I at 19 kilometres in length and Kalia II at 20 kilometres in length. The project is located approximately 300km to the east of Conakry.

Glenn Baldwin, Chief executive Officer of Bellzone Mining said: "The work undertaken over the past 12 months has given us a real platform from which to develop.

"This work programme has enabled us to define a DSO resource at Kalia I and enhances our confidence in the total Oxide resource. While we always knew we had a large resource, our confidence has been increased due to the focussed work we have recently undertaken, and we are pleased to demonstrate the massive potential of this project ahead of schedule."
