Castle Minerals (ASX: CDT) is a gold exploration company with six project areas covering more than 12,000km² in Ghana, West Africa. The company's projects include Akoko, Antubia, Banso, Bondaye, Opon Mansi and Wa.
Castle Minerals (ASX: CDT) has reported that a soil geochemical program testing the strike extensions to the Kandia artisanal gold workings has defined a open ended gold anomaly that is over 15km long.
The company said Assay results for the northern half of the program are still to be received.
An area south of the Kandia workings, in north west Ghana, that produced a stronger gold response than the Kandia workings themselves is of particular interest.
This area exhibits a continuous coherent gold anomaly approximately 300m wide over a 6km strike length with a distinct orientation change at the northern end possibly reflecting an underlying structural change.
Mike Ivey, managing director, said “the Kandia prospect is evolving rapidly since our discovery of extensive artisanal gold workings just six weeks ago."
"We have just finished the first ever drill testing of the workings with over 2,000m of RC drilling completed and our soil sampling has defined an extensive trend of gold anomalism to the south that warrants immediate follow up work."
"We are looking forward to receiving the remainder of the soil geochemical results and the results of the recently completed drilling," he added.
The Kandia prospect was discovered in April during reconnaissance field mapping. During this program a large area of previously unknown artisanal gold workings was discovered that comprise three main groups developed over approximately 600m of strike.
