Abzu in Ghana
Abzu has chosen to explore for gold in Ghana due to the country's rich history of gold discovery and mining that makes it the second largest producer in Africa. Ghana has historical production in excess of 100M oz and currently is home to numerous active gold mines, seven of which have resources exceeding 5 M oz, and four of which have resources in excess of 10 M oz. The stable democratic government offers a business environment with strong land and title laws and a living environment free of conflict. Most of the gold in Ghana occurs in structurally controlled vein systems along the margins of volcanic belts (Asafo) and in intra-basin shear zones such as along the Asankrangwa Trend, where the company's initial efforts will be focused on Mpatasie, Golden Reef, and U-and-N concessions.
