Rockgate President Karl Kottmeier remarked: "I am pleased to report that the visit by the Minister was a tremendous success. The Minister provided a very clear endorsement for the Falea project and encouraged our ongoing operations as a key part of the Malian government's desire for diversification within the country's gold focused mining industry. As the only potential uranium mine in Mali, the Falea project provides an excellent opportunity for the government to achieve this goal. Responsible media representatives were in attendance during the Minister's visit and we are happy that an accurate reporting of the successes at Falea and the encouragement the government for our work is now being provided. I thank the Minister and his team for their visit and their support of Rockgate's efforts."

Rockgate has engaged SRK Consultants, in part, to advance the company's environmental and social impact assessment and management efforts, continuing on from the initial baseline study completed by Golder Associates. Previously, the Company and the Government of Mali, through the Ministry of Mines, had agreed on working jointly to establish environmental policy and a uranium convention for Mali.
