RC drilling set to start
Mako Gold is about to start a 2,000-metre reverse circulation (RC) drill program at its Tchaga Prospect within the Napié Gold Project in Cote d’lvoire.
This will follow the recently completed and successful 27-hole RC program at Tchaga and other regional targets during July 2019.
A number of strong gold intersections were recorded at Tchaga including 18 metres at 3.25 g/t gold from 39 metres at 23 metres at 2.46 g/t gold from 15 metres.
These results doubled the strike extent of gold mineralisation on the prospect to 1-kilometre.
The company is focusing on Tchaga in its endeavour to outline a JORC-compliant gold resource.
Mako’s flagship project is Napié in north-central Côte d’Ivoire where it is earning up to a 75% interest.
