- Kefi Minerals said it had upped security at its Tulu Kapi gold project in Ethiopia as a precautionary measure following a foiled coup attempt in another part of the country.

The incident occurred in Bahir Dar, the capital of the Amhara region, around 500 kilometres from the company's project.

'As a precautionary measure the company has imposed a heightened duty of care on its activities and has elevated security procedures,' Kefi Minerals said.

'Otherwise this incident has no impact on Kefi's current or planned activities and there were no such attempts in the remaining provinces, including Oromia, where the project is located.'
