Commenting on the results, CEO Dan Betts said: "All of our resources are in a proximity which could enable them to be developed as one mining operation with a single production facility and we have moved rapidly to assemble a team with the skills to progress these discoveries towards development.
"With the proposed US$5m investment from the IFC, its first mining investment in Liberia, Hummingbird remains in a strong financial position to continue developing its gold Resources."
