Assay results are expected in early December.
Drilling is working towards estimating a maiden resource and follows the 27-hole RC program at Tchaga and other regional targets during July 2019.
Previous high-grade intersections being followed up include 28 metres at 4.86 g/t gold.
Drill results to date have confirmed the presence of multiple gold mineralised zones along a strike length of 1 kilometre.
Mako’s managing director Peter Ledwidge said: “We are pleased that our latest drilling program was completed in a timely fashion, thanks to the efficiency of our team and drilling contractor.
“Mako looks forward to providing assay results, which we expect to have by early December.”
Mako earning into project from Perseus
Mako’s flagship project is the Napié Project is located in north-central Côte d’Ivoire where it is earning up to a 75% interest.
Infill drilling for maiden JORC resource
The July drill program was designed to extend mineralisation outlined over a 500-metre strike length in previous drill programs on the Tchaga Prospect.
The results returned from drilling doubled the strike extent of gold mineralisation to 1 kilometre.
Drilling to date has confirmed the presence of multiple gold mineralised zones along a strike length of one kilometre.
This recent drill program focused on infill drilling at Tchaga for the purposes of establishing a JORC compliant gold resource.
Met work shows 94.7% gold recoveries
During September 2019, results were reported from cyanidation bottle roll test work 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.
