Recent trenching and drilling at the target has produced impressive assay results

Predictive Discovery Ltd (ASX:PDI) has commenced up to 1,000 metres of diamond drilling at its Ferkessedougou North permit in Cote D’Ivoire.

Drilling is designed to explore the shape of the gold mineralised granitic body identified recently by encouraging trenching results that featured 34 metres at 5.29 g/t gold and 92 metres at 1.76 g/t gold.

The trenching results followed earlier reverse circulation (RC) drill results from the same body that featured 25 metres at 3.1 g/t gold from 64 metres depth.

Predictive’s managing director Paul Roberts said: “The company is excited by the commencement of diamond drilling at Ferkessedougou North following the outstanding trench results announced in February.

“The trenching identified an elliptical shaped gold mineralised granitic intrusive body approximately 160 metres long and 90 metres wide at surface.

“We are eager to test the mineralised body with deeper drilling. With trenching results pending and drilling now underway on both the Boundiali and Ferkessedougou North Projects, we look forward to a steady stream of new results from the Toro Joint Venture in the coming months.”

READ: Predictive Discovery identifies three new gold soil anomalies

Earlier this month, Predictive discovered three new gold-in-soil anomalies during geochemical sampling at its Boundiali Project in Cote D’Ivoire, also part of the Toro Gold JV.

A trenching program to follow-up the results is underway and drilling is expected to commence once trenching results have been received.

Proactive caught up with the company to discuss their West African gold portfolio earlier this month.
