Dandoko is in close proximity to a number of other world-class gold deposits.
During late December, drilling results included 59 metres at 2 g/t gold, and this has been followed up by 37 metres at 2.6 g/t gold.
A secondary drill rig has been mobilised to accelerate the phase I program where previous drilling also featured 42 metres at 6.14 g/t gold.
Results pending from other drill holes
A total of 193 aircore holes across 16 kilometres have been completed to date as part of Oklo’s 2018 phase I drilling campaign.
Results are pending from a further 76 aircore, 4 reverse circulation and 3 diamond drill holes with drilling continuing.
Should there be a continuation of quality grades delineated from substantially sized intersections, upcoming news could provide share price momentum.
Dandoko surrounded by a world-class mines
Oklo’s Dandoko Project and adjoining Moussala and Kouroufing Projects are located within a highly prospective area of Mali.
The Kenieba Inlier of western Mali lies 30 kilometres to the east of B2Gold’s 5.15 million ounce Fekola Mine.
It is also within 50 kilometres of Randgold’s 12.5 million ounce Loulo Mine.
Drill programs test shallow and at depth extensions
The drilling programs have been designed to test for both strike and depth extensions to the significant shallow oxide gold mineralisation previously encountered at Seko.
Aircore drilling is being conducted to a vertical depth of circa 80 metres.
Deeper reverse circulation and diamond drilling is being undertaken to vertical depths of circa 200 metres.
The phase I program is scheduled to be completed by the end of February 2018 at an estimated cost of $3.5 million.
