Previous exploration has highlighted a 13 km soil and auger drilling anomaly that has been partially tested by RC and diamond drilling. Exploration was primarily focused in the northern parts of Uyowa with Ashanti Goldfiends Corporation (Ahsanti) undertaking a 999 meters reverse circulation drilling program in 2003. Ashanti relinquished Uyowa, returning it to its local owners who then sold it to Lake Victoria Mining Company Inc (LVMC) in 2011 via an option agreement. LVMC spent approximately $1.2 million further exploring Uyowa and conducted a 2,486 metre reverse circulation drilling program identifying two continuous, gold rich zones extending approximately 1.3 kilometres in strike length.
