West African Resources (ASX:WAF, CVE:WAF) has received further high-grade drilling results from its Sanbrado Gold Project in Burkina Faso including 0.5 metres at 280.3 g/t gold.
High-grade results from depth at M1 South includes:
- 2.5 metres at 58.9 g/t gold from 254 metres, including 0.5 metres at 280.3 g/t gold from 256 metres; and
- 2.5m at 24.4 g/t gold from 162 metres, including 0.5 metres at 64.9 g/t gold from 163.5 metres.
Significant results from M5 includes:
- 36.5 metres at 2.5 g/t gold from 320 metres, including 0.5 metres at 49.5 g/t gold; and
- 37 metres at 2.4 g/t gold from 298.5 metres, including 1.5 metres at 18.1 g/t gold.
Six drill rigs are currently on-site double shifting, infilling and extending the mineralised zone.
A new drilling program has been designed to take mineralisation to more than 500 vertical metres down dip on the southern shoot at M1 South.
There are less than three holes to complete in the current drilling program for the Q3 resource update and then the deep drilling program will commence.
Additional drilling will be planned once all results are received for the current program.
Importantly, West African is well funded to complete all work programs for 2017.
