Goldplat, the AIM quoted gold producer with international gold recovery operations located in South Africa and Ghana and a gold mine in Kenya, notes the announcement released by Ashanti Gold Corp. ('Ashanti') in relation to Goldplat's Anumso Gold Project in Ghana ('Anumso'), in which Ashanti has decided to use its right to exercise an earn-in option for 51% of Anumso.
