Golden Star Supports the Return of Giants of Africa to Ghana

PR Newswire

TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Golden Star Resources Ltd. (NYSE American: GSS; TSX: GSC; GSE: GSR) ("Golden Star" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it is supporting the return of Giants of Africa to Ghana, as part of the Company's commitment to industry-leading corporate social responsibility ("CSR").

Giants of Africa is a not-for-profit, Africa-focused youth organization, founded by the President of the Toronto Raptors basketball team, Masai Ujiri. The organization's objective is to create opportunities for African youth through the game of basketball. During Giants of Africa's 15 year history, it has held numerous camps across the continent, providing coaching, sports clothing and training equipment to hundreds of African young people.

In 2015 and 2016 Giants of Africa hosted basketball camps in Ghana's capital, Accra, but the 2018 program will be hosted in the Western region for the first time, close to Golden Star's Prestea Complex. Golden Star has sponsored the construction of a multi-purpose sports and recreational centre to host the camp and for use thereafter by the Prestea community.

The camp begins today and runs until October 14, 2018 and is being attended by 54 of Ghana's most accomplished young basketball players, aged 18 and under. The players have been selected from across Ghana and in addition to basketball coaching, they will receive mentorship in life skills, such as leadership and self-discipline.

Sam Coetzer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Golden Star, commented:

"Promoting the advancement of African young people is at the heart of our CSR objectives so supporting the work of Giants of Africa was a clear choice for Golden Star. We have long realized the importance of partnerships, having worked hand in hand with the Government of Ghana and other international development agencies in the past to bring sustainable benefits to our host communities. We are excited to welcome Giants of Africa to the Prestea area and to encourage Ghana's youth to "dream big" and achieve their goals."
