Tawana Resources has signed a strategic alliance agreement with West African gold explorer Gryphon Minerals as part of its expansion plans into West Africa.

The agreement provides Tawana with access to Gryphon’s exploration and technical team and operational and logistical expertise in the region.

Gryphon will also assist Tawana to establish itself in West Africa and offer technical, operational and logistical advice.

Marking the first acquisition under the alliance, Tawana has acquired highly prospective mineral permit applications covering over 3,800km2 in Liberia, West Africa.
