Baomahun Gold Project, Sierra Leone: (100% ownership)


·         Drilling programme underway;

·         Initial drilling of 7,000 metres planned in 12 holes prior to commencement of the rainy season in July;

·         Current drilling is targeting additional underground resource potential;

·         Scoping study combining open pit and underground operations scheduled to be completed by the end of 2009; and

·         25 year Mining Lease agreement signed by the Minister of Mines. 


"The successful commissioning of the Kalsaka gold processing plant and the production of 12,890 ounces of gold from this mine in the first quarter of this year puts Cluff Gold on target to produce 100,000 ounces in 2009 from the Kalsaka Mine and Angovia Mine," said Mr. Algy Cluff, Chairman of Cluff Gold plc. "We expect that the Kalsaka operation will be fully commissioned by the end of this month and that we will achieve the current production estimate of 60,000 ounces in 2009 at this operation. To further expand our gold resources, we are also advancing our flagship gold exploration project, Baomahun, through a 7,000 metre drilling programme. As previously reported on September 30, 2008, metallurgical test work results indicate that the ores are not refractory with average recovery of 92% being achieved at Baomahun."


In addition to the Kalsaka and Baomahun projects, the operations at the Angovia Mine in Cote d'Ivoire are improving month to month. This is due to the increased mining fleet which is achieving better production rates. The mine is expected to produce 40,000 ounces in 2009.
