This new program extended infill drill coverage to about 920 metres of mineralised strike on the Nyangboue gold prospect.
Highlight results from the program include:
- 3 metres at 14.97 g/t gold from 9 metres;
- 13 metres at 1.92 g/t gold from 68 metres;
- 16 metres at 1.64 g/t gold from 7 metres; and
- 10 metres at 2.32 g/t gold from 146 metres.
New drilling results and significant intercepts from previous drill programs
These new results are part of the Predictive - Resolute Mining (ASX:RSG) joint venture exploration program in Cote D’Ivoire (formerly the Toro JV) with a current focus on the Boundiali and Ferkessedougou North Projects each of which contain recent gold discoveries and excellent potential to find further gold mineralisation.
Predictive has interests in about 5,000 square kilometres of prospective landholdings across the world-class Birimian greenstone belts of Cote D’Ivoire.
The Boundiali Project is located within the same greenstone belt as the large Tongon (4.6 million ounces of gold) and Sissingue (1.0 million ounces of gold) gold mines.
Predictive West African projects, properties and interests
Predictive managing director Paul Roberts said: “These new results from Nyangboue add to the picture obtained in the April-May infill drilling program of a series of north-striking, sub-parallel, gold-mineralised zones dipping shallowly to the west.
“Given that the mineralisation is open to the north, south and down dip, there is clearly more drilling to be done at Nyangboue to determine the full size of the gold mineralised system.
“When combined with the new gold mineralisation discovered in the Boundiali North permit, the potential scale of the mineralised systems at Boundiali continue to grow.
“Release of these results is a great start to the joint venture relationship with new partner Resolute Mining.
“We look forward to working with Resolute to uncover more gold in the Boundiali Project and across our joint venture projects in Cote D’Ivoire.”
