Roxgold Inc. (TSXV:ROG) announced that it has received assays from selected intervals from an additional 12 core holes from its Yaramoko Concession located in western Burkina Faso, West Africa.
As quoted in the press release:
Drill Holes 017, 018 and 021 through 024 are located in the eastern area of Zone 55 and together with previously reported high grade intervals including 62.74 gpt Au over 16 meters in DDH-022 indicates the presence of a high grade “shoot” in this area.
Drill holes 019 and 020 are located on Zone 55′s final western section and indicate that mineralization is open in this direction although grades are lower.
This summer’s drill program tested Zone 55 along a strike length of 400 meters and to vertical depths of approximately 100 meters with 30 core holes and two RC holes.
Assays have now been reported for 21 of the 30 holes and assays are pending for the remaining nine holes which tested the final few sections of Zone 55 to the east.
Roxgold’s President and CEO, Robert Sibthorpe said:
“The gold intercepts at Yaramoko continue to exceed our expectations.” “The results extend the mineralized strike length of Zone 55 a further one hundred meters to the east, indicating the presence of a high grade shoot in this area.”
