Vancouver-based Abzu Gold Ltd. said Monday it has begun drilling at a gold concession in Ghana.

Work at Abzu's Nangodi concession, Bole-Nangodi Gold Belt, is one of 10 concession under option agreement with Red Back Mining Ghana Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corp.

We are very excited to commence drilling the Nangodi target as it is an impressive gold-bearing vein and stockwork zone and provides a rare opportunity to follow up on unfinished positive results by others, Dr. Paul Klipfel, Abzu's president, said. Our current data indicates significant gold grades and continuity over large widths indicating potential for a very sizable system.
