Papillon Resources Continues Operations At Fekola Gold Project

Papillon Resources' (ASX: PIR) operations in western Mali are continuing normally, with no impact from the reported coup attempt.

A military group in Mali has said that it has seized power an initiated a curfew in the west African country.

Earlier today the U.S. joined the African Union, European Union and other world institutions in condemning the takeover.

Papillon says it has been advised that the current state of affairs in the country's capital city of Bamako is calm.

At the Fekola Project in western Mali, Papillon is targeting a maiden gold JORC Resource by mid-2012, with infill and extensional diamond and reverse circulation drilling underway.
