Oklo Resources Ltd (ASX:OKU) has received positive assay results from the final three drill holes testing for extensions to the broad zone of gold at the Seko Anomaly 2 (SK2) within the Dandoko Project, Mali.

The company intercepted further significant gold mineralisation of 19 metres at 2.41 g/t gold from 51 metres, including 9 metres at 3.64 g/t gold from 55 metres.

The new results, in conjunction with the earlier drilling results, have confirmed a continuous gold-mineralised zone at SK2 extending from surface to a vertical depth of 185 metres, remaining open at depth.

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

The projects are 30 kilometres to the east of B2Gold’s (TSE:BTO) 5.15 million ounce Fekola Mine and 50 kilometres to the southeast of Randgold’s (LON:RRS) 12.5 million ounce Loulo Mine.

Exploration in late 2016 discovered what is now the 12-kilometre long Dandoko gold corridor, including the Seko and more recent Sory discoveries.

Oklo’s 2018 phase I drilling program at Seko is designed to test for both strike and depth extensions to the previously encountered oxide gold mineralisation.

The latest drilling results indicate that the gold mineralisation at SK2 dips steeply to the east with a southerly plunge component to the high-grade zone.

Significantly, the lower contact (footwall) of the high-grade zone is potentially fault bound.

Phase II drilling to focus on resource definition at Seko

The $3.5 million phase I program is now 95% complete with an aggressive phase II program to commence shortly.

The phase II program will comprise of Seko oxide resource definition drilling, including diamond drilling for density and metallurgical test work, and Seko primary zone exploration drilling.

Oklo will also drill test other gold anomalies within the Dandoko gold corridor and will carry out auger geochemistry work over regional targets in West Mali.

Dandoko gold corridor drilling program

The company’s first pass aircore drilling has continued on other targets within the Dandoko gold corridor, with 62 holes (for 6,495 metres) completed at the Dabia prospect, located 2.5 kilometres north of Seko.

The drilling is now complete with assay results pending.
