Predictive Discovery Ltd (ASX:PDI) has restarted power auger drilling at Kaninko Gold Project in Guinea with a program designed to explore the full horizontal extent of the recent NE Bankan discovery.
The planned 189-hole program for 3,500 metres is designed to follow-up on the NE Bankan discovery by drilling for extensions to the gold mineralised system to the north and south.
Initially, the testing will start to the south of drill hole KKOAC001, which intersected 46 metres at 6.58 g/t from 4 metres, including 10 metres at 26.52 g/t from 34 metres.
Holes will be drilled by Sahara Mining Services on a 900 metres wide, 80 x 80-metre square grid up to 20 metres deep.
This grid will cover distances of about 600 metres to the north and 600 metres to the south of the current 450 metre-long auger grid, extending the strike to around 1,700 metres.

Additional drilling programs will be announced as soon as drill contracts are finalised.
