Bamako, Mali, 22 April 2008  -  The Kankou Moussa bullion bank of Mali has sold 819 kilograms of gold since its Bamako sales office opened in April last year, Randgold Resources said today.

The bank was established in 2007 as a partnership between the government of Mali and Randgold Resources to make Malian gold available to the Malian people.  More specifically, it provides the local jewellery industry with easier access to gold as well as the opportunity to sell its products on the international market.

Kankou Moussa director Samba Dieng said the high level of sales  -  achieved in spite of record gold price levels  -  had far exceeded expectations and was a clear indication that the bank was meeting a real need and a growing demand.
