Arrow Minerals extends Burkina Faso gold discovery to more than 3 kilometres

Aircore geochemistry has identified gold anomalism beneath transported soil cover at the Divole West project, confirming continuous mineralisation at Dassa to more than 3 kilometres in strike length.

Arrow Minerals Ltd - Arrow Minerals extends Dassa Gold discovery at Divole West Project in Burkina Faso to more than 3 kilometres
Further drilling is planned early in the June quarter of 2020

Arrow Minerals Ltd's (ASX:AMD) reverse circulation (RC) drill results, as well as sampling, from Dassa gold discovery within the Divole West Project in western Burkina Faso have extended mineralisation to more than 3 kilometres in strike length.

Best results from the completed program were 6 metres at 3.8 g/t gold from 117 metres, including 3 metres at 5.7 g/t and 17 metres at 1.6 g/t from 93 metres, including 3 metres at 4.4 g/t.

The RC drilling at Dassa was accompanied by aircore sampling of saprolite (weathered bedrock) under transported soil cover.

Geochemistry has identified gold anomalism beneath transported soil cover, confirming continuous mineralisation over at least 3 kilometres in strike-length.

Current Divole West drilling results

Managing director Hoard Golden said: “This recent round of drilling on the Dassa gold discovery has significantly extended the mineralisation to the east and confirmed a more than 3-kilometre-long continuous zone that hosts significant gold mineralisation.

“The Dassa gold discovery remains open to the north, south, east and downdip to the east.

“We look forward to completing further drilling to grow the Dassa gold discovery, still in its early days after the maiden drilling program just two months ago.”  

Other notable intersections:

  • 5 metres at 1.5 g/t from 74 metres; and
  • 1 metre at 6.2 g/t from 121 metres.

Next steps

The Dassa discovery remains open in all directions, with further drilling planned early in the next quarter, including: 

  • A mix of auger and aircore drilling, which has been effective in targeting gold at Dassa. These techniques will be employed to the south of known Dassa mineralisation in the coming month;
  •  A similar auger/aircore program is planned to the north of the Dassa mineralisation within the northern sector of the Divole West permit;
  • The continued down-dip extension of mineralisation to the east that was successfully tested in the January-February 2020 drilling. Existing RC profiles will be extended even further to the east and at depth by April 2020 to follow the known continuous gold mineralisation; and
  • The central portion of Dassa mineralised zone will be tested with deeper RC drilling and completed by April 2020 to infill the remaining portion of the more than 3-kilometre strike length and demonstrate the potential for Dassa to become a large, coherent, shallow block of mostly oxidised gold mineralisation.
