The project builds on Oklo's gold portfolio in Mali

Oklo Resources Ltd (ASX:OKU) has acquired a 65% interest in the Kossaya Project in Mali, adding to its landholding in the Birimian greenstone belts.

Kossaya covers 70 square kilometres and is nearby to Oklo’s other projects including its flagship Dandoko Project.

Oklo received results from shallow auger drilling in May 2019 that showed gold mineralisation at Kossaya including 7 metres at 4.29 g/t gold.

The auger drilling met Oklo’s commitment to fund a minimum of €100,000 in exploration allowing it to exercise the option and pay €60,980 to gain the 65% stake.

Oklo can increase ownership to 100% by paying around €30,000 in cash or shares by July 2020.
