READ: Azumah Resources delivers proof of concept for feeder zone at Wa Gold Project

Azumah’s flagship is the Wa Gold Project in Ghana at which exploration is progressing on multiple fronts aimed at updating the resource and delivering an interim ore reserve.

Follow-up drilling in the central zone of the Kunche deposit has provided further proof of concept for a possible feeder zone into the main Kunche deposit.

The feeder zone is expected to enable the existing shallow pit design to be deepened and an underground mining option to be scoped.

Resources update this quarter

Azumah expects to update resources during this quarter and ore reserves by the end of the year.

The Wa resource includes 1.4 million ounces in the measured and indicated categories grading 1.7 g/t and incorporates a reserve of 624,000 ounces.
