Non-Executive Director Site Tour

Wednesday 11th June, 2016

Savannah's Non-Executive directors, Barry Hawthorne and Richard Wake Walker, spent the week of May 20th touring Leland's field operations and regional offices.  They met with management and staff who supplied updates on recent exploration activities and interesting new results.

Mr. Wake Walker had this to say, "I had not realized just what potential Tanzania possesses for mining development, especially in diamonds and gold. Compared to West and Central Africa, Tanzania is clearly a much more interesting and significant prospect. With its huge land position, and technical expertise, Leland is well placed to exploit Tanzania's mineral possibilities."

 Mr. Hawthorne commented that he was most impressed at the speed with which a well motivated field team has been created and the enthusiasm displayed by the field, lab and office personnel. He went on to say that the active engagement with the local communities in the field was also impressive, particularly in respect of job creation and training in rural areas where few such opportunities normally exist.
