Mako Gold continues to grow Tchaga prospect at Napié with hits up to 9.85 metres at 6.63 g/t

The company aims to deliver a maiden mineral resource estimate later this year as drilling results continue to validate its methodical approach.

Evidence of new lodes to the north and south of known mineralisation warrant follow-up drilling.

Mako Gold Ltd (ASX:MKG) continues to expand Tchaga prospect at the Napié Project in Côte d’Ivoire with further reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling returning up to 17 metres at 3.06 g/t gold from 129 metres and 9.85 metres at 6.63 g/t from 213.15 metres, including 2 metres at 30.15 g/t.

The latest drilling results validate Mako’s methodical approach of infill drilling as well as drilling along strike and down-dip of previously identified mineralised lodes.

This increases the footprint of each lode and targets new lodes, with the aim of delivering a large maiden mineral resource estimate later this year.

Footprint continues to expand

Managing director Peter Ledwidge said: “The footprint of the Tchaga Project continues to expand as exploration progresses with further high-grade drill intersections and new largely untested lodes that have been defined.

“The deeper high-grade results reported are significant as these confirm the high-grade shoots within the broader mineralised envelope on multiple cross-sections.”

To date, the drilling has been concentrated in the eastern portion of the 1.8 kilometres x 0.5 kilometres wide Tchaga soil anomaly.

All mineralised lodes remain open along strike to the northeast and the southwest, as well as at depth.

Mako says potential exists to extend the mineralisation by drill testing more of the soil anomaly, as well as testing the emerging lodes intersected in drilling to the north and south of existing lodes.

Increased confidence to deliver resource

Ledwidge added: “Confirmation of these high-grade intercepts at depth increases confidence in Mako being able to deliver a robust maiden mineral resource estimate with gold mineralisation present from surface to the base of a conceptual pit.

“Drilling is ongoing at Tchaga to further extend the strike-length of known mineralised lodes as well as the newly identified lodes.

“We look forward to providing constant news flow with our drilling progressing well and assay turnaround times back on track now that we are utilising two assay laboratories.”

Other results include:

  • 17 metres at 3.06 g/t from 129 metres;
  • 2 metres at 14.99 g/t from 14 metres and 5 metres at 4.63 g/t from 50 metres;
  • 15 metres at 1.08 g/t from 32 metres, 4 metres at 1.42 g/t from 87 metres and 13.8 metres at 1.74 g/t from 193.1 metres; and
  • 5 metres at 1.31 g/t from 53 metres, 12 metres at 0.96 g/t from 151 metres and 3.9 metres at 5.35 g/t from 183.8 metres.

The West African explorer expects ongoing news flow with drills operating on double shifts and two assay laboratories being utilised to process drill samples.
