The importance of that, the broker goes on to explain, is that West African Mineral's project should therefore be well placed if infrastructure is put in place to access SDL's project.

West African Mineral Resources is next week running an analyst site visit to its projects.

A second reverse circulation (RC) drill rig and two diamond rigs have been mobilized, and will be operational by mid-June, to assist in the exploration programme.
