Expert Comments:

Chris Thompson, Raymond James (2/24/17)
"Asanko Gold Inc. is still considering a multi-stage expanded operating scenario which would increase production to 450 Koz/year by 2020. . .we see the company's growth prospects remaining intact, albeit at a slightly higher operating cost, but supported by discovery potential offered by Asanko's prospective land package."

Chris Thompson, Raymond James (2/6/17)
"Asanko Gold Inc. has now received all necessary permits for the construction and operation of the Esaase pit at its Asanko mine, including the overland conveyor to transport ore from Esaase to the existing processing plant. A revised definitive feasibility study that will include revised mineral reserves, resources as well as a revised life-of-mine plan is anticipated before month end (February 2017)."

Nana Sangmuah, Clarus Securities (1/12/17)
"We believe with Phase 1 performance exceeding expectations, Asanko Gold Inc. is well positioned to deliver a compelling production growth of ~100% to ~300 koz by 2018 and ultimately become a ~0.5MM oz producer through Phase 2B by 2020. . .we await the final feasibility study with detailed mine plans to update our valuation model(Q1/17). . .given the production growth profile, we believe AKG would be a coveted asset in any of the major's asset portfolio. . .we maintain our BUY rating and target price of $8.50 per share."

Chris Thompson, Raymond James (1/11/17)
"Asanko Gold Inc. reported Q4/16 production results which were in-line with expectations. . .AKG reported Q4/16 production of 57 koz, which compares favorably with our estimate of 56 koz. . .recoveries of 94% exceeded our expectations of 92%. Management expects these recoveries to continue into the foreseeable future."

Geordie Mark, Haywood Securities (12/5/16)
"We see Asanko Gold Inc. as a growing gold producer through the staged expansion of the Asanko Gold Mine through Phase 2 (A and B). . .the Company's 2017 operations plan concentrates on ramping-up exploitation rates at Nkran, with a total of 25 million tonnes (Mt) of material expected to be exploited from the pit, which will include 4 Mt of ore and 5 Mt of waste removed as part of the west wall pushback. . .we project total production of 241 Koz of gold at a cash cost of $672/oz."

Nana Sangmuah, Clarus Securities (11/24/16)
"We return highly encouraged from our Asanko Gold Inc. site visit; we were impressed by the team on the ground that has successfully delivered Phase 1 ahead of schedule and within budget. Year 2 (2017) production of Phase 1 is now being guided for 230–240koz, 25%-30% ahead of DPP plan of ~184koz. . . the better than expected ramp-up for Phase 1 has positioned the company well to deliver compelling production growth through Phase 2 that would boost production to 470 koz/year by 2020; given the production growth profile, we believe AKG would be a coveted asset in any of the major's asset portfolios."
