Gold exploration and development company Kefi Minerals reported wider losses on rising costs.

Looking ahead, the company said it would continue to progress its plan to drill the Tulu Kapi mine - located in Ethiopia - in 2021.

'During construction, we will appoint the plant and mine managers and they will continue to refine the 2020 Tulu Kapi Plan in light of 2021 grade-control drilling in the first mining zones and we will review the cut-off grade which was based on what now appears to be an overly conservative gold price of US$1,098/oz,' the company said.
