Oklo Resources initial assays bode well for Seko gold discovery

First assays confirm the potential for a gold system at depth at Seko.
Oklo Resources initial assays bode well for Seko gold discovery
Over 62,000 metres of drilling is now complete at the two projects

Oklo Resources (ASX:OKU) has received assay results from the first 25 holes of a 62 hole program at the Seko gold discovery within the Dandoko project located in Mali.

The first pass aircore drilling campaign at Seko has intersected significant widths of gold mineralisation in multiple holes spaced 50 metres apart.
Significant intersections include 18 metres at 2.01 g/t gold from 51 metres.

Initial assays come from the first three drill traverses, which cover only 800 metres of the first Seko two kilometre long gold trend.

Assay results from the remaining 6 aircore traverses or 37 holes testing a further 4 of the Seko auger gold anomalies are expected over the coming fortnight.
Simon Taylor, managing director, commented: “These initial aircore drilling results over just one of the Seko anomalies provide promising indications for a large gold system at depth.”


Drill result details

A total of 62 holes for circa 5,250 metres were drilled in the first pass aircore program along 9 traverses at a line spacing of 400 metres.

Significant intersections include:

- 13 metres at 2.27g/t gold from 23 metres;
- 18 metres at 2.01g/t gold from 51 metres; and
- 14 metres at 1.96g/t gold from 8 metres.

Broad zones of lower grade gold mineralisation include:

- 25 metres at 1.30 g/t gold from surface;
- 36 metres at 1.08 g/t gold from 23 metres; and
- 31 metres at 0.50 g/t gold from 8 metres.

All significant intersections coincident with auger geochemical anomalies and are hosted within deeply weathered bedrock.


Analysis

The emerging Seko gold discovery extends over a large area and these assay results from the first three wide-spaced lines is a very encouraging start.

In particular, results support the potential of the greater 12 kilometre-long Dandoko gold corridor.

Oklo remains leveraged to further exploration based news flow at Seko with results from the other six lines of aircore holes expected.

The Dandoko and Moussala projects are located within the Kenieba Inlier of western Mali and lie within 30 kilometres of B2Gold’s 5.15 million ounce Fekola project and 50 kilometres of Randgold’s 12.5 million ounce Loulo mine.


Oklo shares have more than doubled year to date, currently priced at $0.275.

The drilling programs are fully funded and continue to be a constant source of news flow for Oklo.
