Mako Gold Ltd’s (ASX:MKG) high-grade results have extended multiple parallel lodes from surface to 200 metres vertical on a section of Tchaga prospect that previously returned 41 metres at 4.51 g/t at Napié Gold Project in Côte d’Ivoire.
The ongoing maiden resource diamond (DD) and reverse circulation (RC) drilling program continues to reaffirm the suitability of and confidence in Mako’s exploration model with best intersections including 13.8 metres at 4.91 g/t gold from 118 metres, including 0.9 metres at 56.53 g/t from 122.5 metres and 1.1 metres at 10.48 g/t from 130.3 metres.
Results are from deeper drilling as the company moves towards its maiden resource estimation on the Tchaga prospect.
Results continue to build confidence
Managing director Peter Ledwidge said the company was pleased to have confirmed wide and high-grade gold intersections to a significant depth on yet another section of the Napié Project.
He said: “These results reaffirm the potential for Napié to host a significant gold system and builds confidence in current and future drilling to continue to widen and extend mineralised lodes outlined to date (along strike and at depth) while defining new mineralised lodes.”
Assays are expected shortly for more than 75 drill holes in infill and extensional RC drilling at Tchaga and RC drilling at Gogbala as the assay lab works through a bagcklog of submitted samples following recent equipment breakdown.
The helicopter for an airborne geophysical survey at Korhogo Project has arrived in-country and is expected to begin this week.
Data from the survey will be used in conjunction with soil sampling results to plan drill holes on the maiden drilling program.
