The Company’s focus was directed to potential acquisitions of drill-ready exploration projects through to advanced projects with existing resources and upside potential.

The Company secured two promising gold assets in Mali, West Africa consisting of 18 prospecting authorizations and research permits spanning circa 1883km² within the Kedougou-Kenieba window, a major Lower Proterozoic Birimian outlier on the NE margin of the West African Shield.

The acquisition of the Malian Assets is due to be completed by the 10th March 2010. Songhoï Resources represents the joint venture vehicle between CAG (80% equity interest) and Mani SARL (20% equity interest) established in August 2006 for the exploration and development of four exploration permits covering circa 279km2 in the prospective Kéniéba and Kayes districts in West Mali.

The Kéniéba Valley in western Mali is host to AngloGold Ashanti Limited / IAMGOLD Corporation’s Sadiola and Yatela Mines, Randgold Resources Limited’s recently commissioned Loulo-Yalea operation and Avion Resources’ recently re-opened Tabakoto-Segala mines. The Bougouni-Sikasso region of southern Mali is host to the Morila gold mine (owned via a joint venture between AngloGold Ashanti and Randgold) and the Syama Mine which is being recommissioned by Resolute Mining Limited to exploit newly defined satellite open-pittable resources.

The acquisition of the Malian Assets represents an opportunity to secure a significant portfolio of tenements in a world class gold region that will add significant growth potential for Colonial, as well as increasing the diversity of its project portfolio.
