Oklo’s Dandoko Project and adjoining Moussala and Kouroufing Projects are located within the Kenieba Inlier of western Mali.

These projects lie within 30 kilometres from B2Gold’s (TSE:BTO) 5.15 million ounce Fekola project and 50 kilometres from Randgold’s (LON:RRS) 12.5 million ounce Loulo mine.

Further significant zones of oxide gold mineralisation

A total of 137 drill holes for circa 13,000 metres have been completed to date as part of Oklo’s 2018 Phase I drilling campaign, with results pending from a further 40 holes.

The results to date continue to confirm Seko’s potential to host a large gold system.

To accelerate the shallow infill drilling program, a second drill rig has recently mobilised to site, with the other rig now dedicated to deeper drilling.

The drilling will pause over the Christmas-New Year period and restart in the first week of January 2018.
