Hummingbird Resources completed the conversion of its 51% interest in the Dugbe gold project into a 51% controlling interest in TSX-V-listed Pasofino Gold in December 2023 to provide clear visibility and control, and facilitate more efficient decision-making and project advancement.

Project Description
Dugbe has estimated mineral reserves of 66-million tonnes at a grade of 1.30 g/t gold for a total of 276 000 oz of gold.
