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.

“High-grade extensions”

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

The campaign is aimed at increasing mineral resources as well as upgrading the resource category in Q4 2019.
