TORONTO, Sept. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- African Gold Group, Inc. (AGG.V) (“AGG” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced engagement with the local communities located around the Kobada gold project.
Following discussions between local leaders and representatives of the Company, several key objectives have been identified to both bolster the development of the surrounding communities’ infrastructure and accelerate the development of the Kobada gold project.
As part of its community engagement, AGG has employed a full-time community relations manager to finalize a phased approach to improve the primary access road from Selefougou to Kobada, close to the Niger river. This will reduce commute time for the local population and improve access to the Kobada project site. Immediate actions include the repair of the existing bridge over the Fie River, which has already begun. Additional improvements include construction of a new bridge over the Fie River, which will allow for safer pedestrian crossings as well as improved access for light and heavy vehicles.
AGG is strongly committed to adhering to corporate social responsibility and is working with local communities and all stakeholders to nurture strong partnerships. A large part of AGG`s corporate social responsibility includes employing the majority of its workforce from the local communities, which will in turn improve employment, training and education opportunities in the region as well as sourcing from local contractors and procuring local goods and services.
