Company Overview

Teranga is a Canadian-based gold producer with a pipeline of West African assets in production, development and exploration on more than 5,000 square kilometers of land located on prospective gold belts. Our vision is to become a multi-jurisdictional West African gold producer with a portfolio of assets offering diversified production with strong margins and sustainable free cash flows.

Since its 2010 IPO, Teranga has produced over 1.2 million ounces of gold from its operating gold mine in Senegal. The Company is currently completing an updated feasibility study for the fully permitted Banfora Gold project in Burkina Faso, with expected completion mid-2017. In 2016, Teranga acquired exploration permits in Ivory Coast. The Company believes these properties – and potential future mining rights that may be acquired – will provide a further pipeline of future growth opportunities.

Concurrent with production and development activities, exploration programs are underway at its most prospective properties to increase its reserve base through resource conversion and new discoveries.  Furthermore, the Company has a solid balance sheet and a strong social license to continue to grow its business.

The Teranga team has extensive experience in exploring, developing and operating successful mines globally. With our focus on growth, we offer exciting and rewarding career opportunities.
