New high-grade gold zones
In August the company further extended the Seko gold system within its Dandoko Gold Project in Mali after drilling identified new high-grade gold zones.
Aircore, reverse circulation and diamond core drilling was undertaken and returned high-grade intersections of up to 27.4 g/t gold.
The drilling programs have confirmed Seko’s growth potential, with several priority targets outlined for follow-up assessment.
Further assay results are pending from drilling completed at the Selingouma and Lomona prospects, 10 kilometres south and 3 kilometres east of Seko respectively.
Extensive gold anomalies
Oklo holds about 500 square kilometres of prospective ground within the Kenieba Inlier of West Mali.
At Dandoko extensive gold anomalies have previously been outlined by auger drilling along a 12-kilometre-long corridor.
The potential of this corridor to host large gold mineralised systems has been demonstrated by the recent drilling success at Seko and several other nearby prospect areas.
