“The name change to Toubani Resources Inc reflects the name of a popular bird in the region, in the local Malinke language. The name change reflects the company spreading its wings, the near-term resource growth potential of the Company and better reflects our local heritage, our strong relationship within the local communities in which we operate and our progress in the development of our flagship Kobada Project. The Company is poised for transformational growth with the advancement of continued exploration of the Kobada Project over the coming year which we believe gives us the potential for further resource growth increases and build on the highly successful drilling campaigns since late 2019. Over the last 2 years our team has been successful in expanding the resource base at Kobada with a 144% increase in reserves and 44% increase in measured and indicated resource categories.”
