African Barrick Gold plc announced that following the unanimous approval by Aviva shareholders on 11 September 2012, the Kenyan Competition Commission has now formally approved the acquisition by ABG of Aviva Mining (Kenya) Ltd ("AMKL") from Aviva Corporation. All conditions have now been satisfied and the transaction will now be finalised. On completion of the acquisition of AMKL, African Barrick plan to continue systematic exploration programmes throughout the licence areas testing for new gold targets and we are targeting advancing one or more projects to resource category level during 2013. These exploration programmes will consist of mapping, soil and rock chip sampling campaigns, auger and aircore drilling, and reverse circulation and core drilling. The current core drilling programme is testing high priority regional targets in order to gain a better understanding of the geology and key controls on the gold mineralisation encountered at each prospect and to allow ranking of targets for future programmes. ...love to see Africa Barrick Gold IN CGG targets !
