Drilling aims to be finished before the wet season begins in July

Oklo Resources Ltd (ASX:OKU) has commenced auger geochemical drilling at the Kouroufing Project in western Mali.

The program will consist of 15,000 metres and will follow a similar process used at the nearby flagship Dandoko Project to discover its multiple gold prospects.

The program is expected to take 50 days to complete and the auger holes will sample the top 2-3 metres of bedrock material on a 400x100-metre grid.

The Kouroufing Project covers an area of 90 square kilometres within the Kenieba Inlier to the east of the regionally significant Senegal Mali Shear Zone (SMSZ).

The SMSZ and associated northeast-trending splay structures are spatially related to several major gold projects.

These include B2Gold Corp’s (TSX:BTO) 5.15 million ounce Fekola mine and 50 kilometres from Randgold Resource Limited’s (LON:RRS) 12.5 million ounce Loulo mine.

Phase II drilling program at the Seko continues

Oklo has been drilling at the Seko SK2 target within the Dandoko Project, Mali testing for extensions beneath the broad, shallow zone of oxide gold mineralisation.

Latest results include 62 metres at 5.26 g/t gold from 3 metres, 31 metres at 6.27 g/t gold from 101 metres and 46 metres at 4.03 g/t gold from 111 metres.

The 2018 fully-funded phase II program is targeting the completion of 50,000 metres of drilling prior to the onset of the wet season in July.

As of last week, a total of 107 aircore holes for 10,837 metres, 33 RC holes for 6,095 metres and 21 diamond holes for 5,291 metres have been complete in the phase II program.

Drilling continues and results remain pending from a further 107 aircore, 19 RC and 9 diamond holes.
