The latest results, which will be incorporated in an Abujar mineral resource upgrade, are among six intervals ranging from 70 to 210 gold gram metres at depths of between 35 metres and 90 metres below surface.
Tietto managing director Caigen Wang said: “These latest diamond holes confirm the presence of high-grade gold mineralisation of 18 metres at 11.72 g/t gold from shallow depths which includes our highest grade drill result to date of 1 metre at 194.93 g/t.
“Fifty metres north of this we have also intersected 36 metres at 4.4 g/t from 52 metres including 1 metre at 103.17 g/t and 1 metre at 33.45 g/t.
“These two diamond holes confirm the excellent high-grade gold continuity along this new strike extension.
“Continuous zone of very high-grade gold”
“We continue to see the growth of a coherent near-surface plus 3.5 g/t gold zone at AG with these latest drill results now giving us six intervals of up to 210 gold gram metres at less than 90 metres below surface, which suggests there is likely to be a continuous zone of very high-grade gold within.
“This broad zone of gold mineralisation with a true width of about 65 metres warrants further drilling down dip to test the potential for a larger zone of gold mineralisation at depth.
“The continuity of gold mineralisation along strike from the 2016 JORC resource provides strong encouragement that we can expect more high-quality gold resources to be delineated even after the imminent resource update as we continue on with our 30,000-metre drilling campaign for 2019.”
