Assays confirm and enhance the recent emerging Seko gold discovery and have identified further regional gold anomalies.
The infill auger drilling at the Seko discovery has delineated a new gold trend at Seko West over a 1.2 kilometre length with grades of up to 1.6 g/t gold.
Oklo plans to complete first-pass traverses of deeper aircore drilling over the main Seko anomalies in coming weeks.
Simon Taylor, managing director, commented:
"The new infill auger results confirm the coherent nature of the strong gold anomalies at Seko and significantly, add support to Oklo’s interpretation of a strong north-northeast trending gold-anomalous corridor extending over 12 kilometres from Selingouma in the south to Dabia in the north."
Drill result summary
To date, a total of 4,791 auger holes for 55,239 metres have been completed at Dandoko and Moussala at an average hole depth of 11 metres.
The latest batch of assay results was received from:
- Infill auger drilling along the extensive gold trends outlined in the Seko area; and
- Regional auger drilling over the southern portion of the Dandoko Project.
Six auger drill rigs are continuing to advance geochemical coverage over the Dandoko and Moussala Projects.
A multi-purpose aircore and reverse circulation rig has also been mobilised to site.
Seko drill results
Infill auger drilling at Seko have confirmed the robustness and enhanced the previously reported Seko gold anomalies and delineated a new gold trend at Seko West over a 1.6 kilometre length with grades of up to 1.6 g/t gold.
Infill auger drilling results on neighbouring anomalies within 2.5 kilometres of Seko have also outlined further coherent zones of strong gold anomalism of over 800 metres in length at Dabia, Dabia West and Seko South.
Regional drill results
Further assay results received from the Phase 1 regional auger coverage over the southern portion of the Dandoko Project have successfully delineated broad areas of gold anomalism spatially related to the historic Selingouma North and Selingouma South prospects.
Both gold anomalies extend for over 1.0 kilometre with localised results of over 1 g/t gold.
