Banro Corporation was incorporated under the Canada Business Corporations Act on May 3, 1994. On May 7, 1996, the name of the Company was changed from Banro International Capital Inc. to Banro Resource Corporation and on January 16, 2001, the name of the Company was again changed to Banro Corporation. The Company, through its four wholly-owned Democratic Republic of the Congo subsidiaries, is engaged in the exploration and development of four gold properties, which are known as Twangiza, Namoya, Lugushwa and Kamituga. These properties are covered by a total of 13 exploitation permits and are found along the 210 kilometre-long Twangiza-Namoya gold belts in the South Kivu and Maniema Provinces of eastern DRC. These properties, totalling approximately 2,612 square kilometres, cover all the major, historical producing areas of the gold belt. The Company's business focus is the exploration and development of these four DRC properties. The Company also holds 14 exploration permits covering an aggregate of 2,638 square kilometres. Ten of the permits are located in the vicinity of the Company's Twangiza property and four are located in the vicinity of the Company's Namoya property.
