Kalana gold mine project is located in the Sikasso region of southwestern Mali, approximately 250km south of the capital Barnako. The project is 80% owned by Endeavour Mining with the Mali government holding the remaining 20%. Completion of Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) and also approval of Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) was achieved in March and April 2016 respectively. However, an optimisation study to increase plant capacity is underway following the acquisition by Endeavour Mining in September 2017. The accompanying analysis does not include consideration of the optimisation study.
