- Cora Gold swung to an annual profit, owing to one-off accounting gains, as it continued to prove up gold assets in West Africa.

Pre-tax profit amounted to $3.6m, compared to a $54k loss in 2016.

The company raised £3.5mand admitted to trading on AIM in October, 2017.

Chief executive Jonathan Forster said the company was focused on unlocking value in two core projects: the Sanankoro gold discovery and the Tekeledougou gold project in Southern Mali.

'With multiple additional drill-ready prospects across our portfolio we are excited to continue our exploration across these highly productive gold belts and generate value for our shareholders in the process,' Forster said.
