The Company announced the filing of an Environmental Impact Study ("EIS") with the Ministry of Petroleum, Energy and Mines in respect to its Tijirit property, which is a first step towards obtaining a mining license in Mauritania.

Additionally, Algold is pleased to announce that a Phase III drilling program, consisting of a minimum of 20,000 meters of drilling, has commenced at Tijirit's Eleonore Zone. This objective of the Phase III drilling program is to further delineate the high-grade gold deposit.
