Being able to recover gold from the ore that holds it is essential to an economic mining operation.

Mako Gold Ltd - Mako Gold preliminary metallurgy work produces 94.5% gold recovery at Tchaga
Drilling is planned at the prospect after the wet season ends usually in November

Mako Gold Ltd (ASX:MKG) has received solid early metallurgical test results from the Tchaga Prospect within the Napie Gold Project in Cote d’lvoire, West Africa.

Cyanidation bottle roll test work was completed on 17 samples of primary and oxide mineralisation from Tchaga.

Encouragingly, gold recoveries averaged 94.7% for primary mineralisation and 94.3% for oxide mineralisation.

Drilling is planned after the wet season in November with the near-term goal of advancing the prospect towards a JORC resource.

Results support advancing Tchaga quickly

Mako’s managing director Peter Ledwidge said: “Many investors had asked about metallurgical testing after we announced the positive drill intersections on our Napié Project.

“As a result, Mako commissioned preliminary metallurgical test work.

“We are very pleased with the results of the test work, which returned average recoveries of greater than 94% in both oxide and primary mineralisation.

“This re-enforces the strategy of advancing the Tchaga Prospect quickly.

“These preliminary positive results de-risk the project one step further and increases confidence in the Napié Project.

“We plan to be drilling again on the Tchaga Prospect shortly after the end of the wet season and look forward to providing updates.”

Drilling following up impressive past results

Drilling to date on the Tchaga prospect has identified a strike extent of gold mineralisation about one kilometre in length.

Multiple broad and high-grade zones of gold mineralisation were intersected in shallow drilling including 28 metres at 4.86 g/t gold from 83 metres and 25 metres at 3.43 g/t gold from 53 metres.
