The Dungeon

By Credo, published on Sep 6, 2013

... comfort and love making, that we secretly shared between one another. All the time we were there, we could smell burning flesh; it was a horrible stench, a dreadful aroma, I suspect we'd soon get use to it.

The cells dawned iron hooks, rings, wrist locks, chainsaw hung from the ceilings, stocks sat in the corner of the room, and spikes hung from the dark surface of the dingy walls.

The March 22 coup by Mali’s military is only the latest example. But Peter Klipfel, President of Abzu Gold Ltd (TSXV:ABS), has reason to believe that Mali is the exception in the region and that neighbouring Ghana is both rich in minerals and politically secure.

“For the last 15 years now, Ghana has had a very stable government and parliamentary process,” Klipfel reports. “You have an emerging middle class... (more)
