Tietto Minerals Ltd (ASX:TIE) has intersected broad high-grade gold up to 34.59 g/t from multiple step-back diamond drill holes at the Abujar-Gludehi (AG) deposit within the Abujar Gold Project in Cote d’lvoire, West Africa.
The company has now obtained a complete set of assay data for step-back hole Zdd061 with results on lines 21, 23 and 27 also reported, covering a continuous zone spanning 700 metres within the high-grade core of the AG mineralisation.
Tietto’s managing director Caigen Wang said: “We are excited to confirm high-grade extensions down dip in all contiguous sections of the AG deposit over a 700-metre strike, demonstrating excellent continuity of mineralisation along dip and strike.
“Extensional drilling is ongoing for the remaining 500 metre strike of the total 1,400 metre extent of the high-grade core of the AG deposit and results will be reported over the next six to eight weeks prior to a significant upgrade to resources anticipated to be reported in quarter four.”
Notable intersections include:
- 73 metres at 2.80 g/t from 218 metres with the following intersections:
- 17 metres at 2.18 from 218 metres, including 1 metre at 34.59 g/t from 218 metres;
- 17 metres at 8.80 g/t from 254 metres, including 7 metres at 20.63 g/t which includes 1 metre at 103.9 g/t from 254 metres; and
- 1 metre at 34.31 g/t from 260 metres.
Diamond drilling progress
Tietto’s two diamond drill rigs are drilling at about 3,000 metres per month for depth extensions from Line 15 to Line 20 and infill drilling between Line 15 and Line 29 of the high grade core section of the AG deposit.
The campaign is aimed at increasing mineral resources as well as upgrading the resource category in Q4 2019.
