Rockridge President, Karl Kottmeier, said, "I am happy to report that our drill program at the Fatou gold project has resumed. The Fatou camp was unaffected by the recent political turmoil in Mali and our exploration work is now fully underway. We are encouraged by the news coming from Bamako this morning that a provisional government is now in place in Mali and we expect that a federal election will follow in due course.
