Congratulations are in order to Ari Sussman and his team at Continental Gold Limited (TSX:CNL). They have been awarded the Mines and Money London 2013 Exploration Award for their Buriticá high grade gold project in Colombia, beating out the likes of Fission Uranium, Robust Resources and Sirius Resources for the honour.

Mines and Money London is one of Europe’s most important annual resource investment conference, gathering over 3,000 investors, brokers, financiers and mining professionals. The four day event concluded yesterday at London’s Business Design Centre.

“We are honoured to have won this prestigious award”, commented Ari Sussman, Continental’s CEO. “I want to thank Mines and Money London for their consideration and acknowledgment; it is sincerely appreciated.  I also want to give special thanks to Mauricio Castañeda, Vice President, Exploration and Vic Wall, Special Advisor to Continental Gold, as well as our exploration team for an outstanding job. With the dedication of these individuals, we have drilled out a large, high-grade and robust mineral resource that stands apart from all the rest. I look forward to the exploration team’s hard work being displayed in an updated mineral resource estimate to be released in the first quarter of 2014.”
