– CANADA, Vancouver – Asante Gold Corporation (CSE:ASE | FRA:1A9) today announced the appointment of Dr. Abdel-Majeed Haroun to the Board of Directors.

Douglas MacQuarrie, President & CEO states, “As the former CEO of PMI Gold Corporation, my team and I worked closely with Dr. Haroun to bring the abandoned Obotan mine (now the Asanko-Goldfield mine), back to life. This mine currently produces 223,000 oz of gold per year and has generated massive new investment, employment, and tax revenues for Ghana. Our shared vision to return this mine to production yielded significant capital gain opportunities to early PMI shareholders. We look forward to working with Dr. Haroun to bring the new SMD 1 mining technique developed by Anaconda Mining (TSX:ANX) 2 to Ghana, and in particular to our high grade Kubi and Keyhole gold projects. This technique has the potential to slash the mining costs, development time, and capital required to take near surface vein type gold deposits to production.”
