Additionally, I would like to thank Darryl Lindsay for his services as Interim CEO, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice-President and his work to define the Batero-Quinchia project from exploration through resource definition and completion of the recent Preliminary Economic Assessment.

ABOUT BATERO GOLD

Batero Gold Corp. is a precious and base metals exploration and development Company. The Company is focused on two primary objectives. The first of these objectives is the advancement of the La Cumbre oxide deposit. La Cumbre is located within the Company's 100% owned Batero-Quinchia Gold Project, which sits within Colombia's emerging and prolific Mid Cauca gold and copper belt. Batero is moving the La Cumbre oxide deposit towards the goal of making a production decision, once the appropriate level of study has been completed, and intends to first target the near and at surface higher grade oxidized gold mineralization at the deposit. Batero's second objective is to pursue opportunities to acquire prospective high-grade, production focused mineral properties in Colombia. In pursuing both these objectives, Batero plans to leverage its secure treasury position, strong regional relationships, experienced management team, and long-term financial partners. Shares of the Vancouver-based company trade on the Toronto Venture Exchange under the symbol BAT.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
