Earlier this week, Azumah drilled out gold in its first pass, 19-hole, 1,729-metre reverse circulation (RC) drill program at the Butele North target.

The program was designed as a broad, initial test of the main 1.6x0.4 kilometre Butele North auger anomaly.

Infill auger sampling and additional RC drilling is planned to investigate the continuity of mineralised shear zones at Butele North.

Multi-target, high-intensity exploration campaign

Private equity group Ibaera Capital is earning up to 47.5% in the Wa Gold Project in two stages over two years by spending up to US$13.5 million ($17 million).

In 2018, $6 million has been committed to a multi-target, high-intensity exploration campaign including 47,000 metres of drilling.

Large pipeline of target areas and specific prospects

Azumah is exploring 2,400 square kilometres of licence holdings, which encompass large tracts of prospective Birimian terrain, the rocks that host the majority of West Africa’s gold mines.

Much of this is covered in soil, alluvium or laterite so most discoveries have been ‘blind’.

Azumah is expected to substantially grow its resource as it continues to test the large pipeline of target areas and specific prospects.
