Steve Stone, managing director of Azumah Resources Ltd (ASX:AZM), speaks to Proactive Investors about the results of the first hole drilled in the Bepkong East prospect within the Wa Gold Project in Ghana.
"What's important about this intercept is it's way below and a long way to the East from where we've ever drilled before; so it's really a new discovery. It's going to change our whole view on our Bepkong deposit, and also the whole system of mineralisation in that area... this adds to the opportunity of going underground once we've mined out that open pit material," says Stone.
A 40,000 metre, $4 million resource upgrade drill program is underway across multiple targets. A feasibility update is due early next year.
