LONDON and BAMAKO -- Raven Resources Group mentioned the ratification of its exploration license over Block 6, onshore Mali through its subsidiary Corvus Resources Management. The formal handover ceremony took place in Bamako on the 16th of August, 2013.

The agreement between Raven Resources Group and the Ministry of Mines and Energy, Mali allows Raven to prospect for hydrocarbons in the prolific Taoudeni basin. Raven Resources Group plans to invest over $50 million as part of this exploration campaign over its 7 year license period.
