Orezone Gold Reports Burkina Faso Operations Update

Orezone Gold Corporation is pleased to report that regular operations are progressively resuming in Burkina Faso. Normal office activities in Ouagadougou and Bomboré site environmental monitoring resumed on November 4 and November 6, respectively. Work is underway at the Bomboré field camp to fully assess the damages and clean up and repair broken windows and office furniture.

No major items were materially affected such as the building structures, stored drill core, drilling equipment, generators and the fuel depot. Some members of the community living near the site, acted on their own, to defend the camp and prevented more extensive damage. The vandals consisted of artisanal miners who have been squatting in the area without ties to the local community. Our employees noted that several of these squatters have already left the project area to avoid prosecution by the local authorities for their actions.

We are thankful for the Nobsin villagers and the local police for their quick actions. The episode has further solidified an already favorable relationship with the local community and stakeholders that support the development of the project.
