Extensive aircore drilling has provided new targets for follow-up programs.

The company proposes reverse circulation drilling to help establish resources

Azumah Resources Limited (ASX:AZM) has extended and better defined zones prospective for gold mineralisation at its Wa project in Ghana.

Aircore drilling at the Manwe prospect has defined six prospective shear zones with a cumulative strike of 5 kilometres.

At Josephine South prospect, an aircore program has defined a new, pronounced, highly anomalous 2 kilometre by 40 metre-wide zone of pronounced gold anomalism.

Stephen Stone, managing director, said: “The extended robust anomalies at Josephine South and Manwe bode well for the pursuit of additional mineral resources at these targets.

“With follow-up work being planned, aircore and reverse circulation programs completed at Butele and a commitment made to a 5,000-hole, 30,000 metres auger program covering the Wa Lawra and Wa East areas, investors can look forward to a high-level of news flow.”

The most recent 211-hole, 3,759-metre aircore campaign is part of an overall strategy to rapidly increase mineral resources and ore reserves at Wa.

There were 84 holes for 1,170 metres at Josephine South and as well as defining a new zone, drilling also extended 500 metres to the southwest a zone of granite-hosted mineralisation.

Six zones identified at Manwe

At Manwe, 127 holes were completed for 2,589 metres to test for mineralisation between the Manwe Main and Manwe North zones.

Wa project priority targets and planned drilling in Ghana’s Upper West region.

Previous reverse circulation drilling encountered ore-grade mineralisation with best intersections of 2 metres at 23 g/t from 44 metres and 12 metres at 5.3g/t from 49 metres respectively.

Six prospective zones of shear-associated gold anomalism with a cumulative strike of at least 5 kilometres have been identified at Manwe.

Resource expectations increase

This considerably increases resource expectations with the controlling shear zones not closed-off to the southeast.

Furthermore, the prospective shear zone hosting the Manwe Main mineralisation has been demonstrated to extend a further circa 600 metres northwest and remains open in that direction.

Reverse circulation drilling proposed

The new zones, together with extensions of previously defined lodes, will be the focus of future reverse circulation drilling.

This will be aimed at establishing an initial JORC resource for the Manwe prospect.

Azumah has committed to a 5,000 hole, 30,000-metre auger drilling campaign that will test for evidence of mineralisation at numerous blind targets across the 2,400km square kilometre project.
