Azumah Resources Ltd (ASX:AZM) has extended gold mineralisation to at least 580 metres depth at the Bepkong deposit within the Wa Gold Project in Ghana.

Recent drilling results from the East Lode include 15.5 metres at 5.17 g/t gold from 401 metres and deep gold such as 2.5 metres at 3.55 g/t gold from 710.5 metres.

Notably, the Bepkong East deep mineralisation is not included in Wa project’s 2.5 million ounce current JORC resource.

Azumah’s managing director Stephen Stone said: “The Bepkong deposit continues to deliver with this latest 11-hole, 5,520 metres program extending East Lode mineralisation to at least 580 metres below surface and most importantly confirming the excellent continuity of the several high-grade zones within it.

“At 800 metres we have just drilled our deepest hole ever at the Wa Gold Project, Ghana, and the rig is now drilling similar deep targeted holes at the nearby and larger Kunche deposit with results to be reported in coming weeks.

Evaluating an underground mining operation

“The Project’s engineers are also now evaluating a possible underground mining option at Bepkong that, if viable, could add even more value to the already financially robust, plus-100,000 ounce per year proposed open-pit development project.

“The Azumah-Ibaera joint venture is confident that it will continue to grow the Wa Gold Project beyond these immediate development plans and from its current 1-million ounce Ore Reserve.”
