Results for 16 drill holes, totalling 2 265 m, have been received, and will assist in further refining the definition of the mineralisation as the Mato Bula Silica Hill system remains open to depth.

Highlight intersections from the Mato Bula Silica Hill Resource infill drilling include;

  • 19.50 m grading at 21.67 g/t gold including 8.6 m at 46.81 g/t gold, from 103.35 m drill depth (WMD050 – Section 19920N).
  • 20.69 m grading at 18.37 g/t gold including 10.67 m at 34.23 g/t gold, from 87.5 m drill depth (WMD053 – Section 19880N).

The intersections are situated in adjacent proximity to former highest grade intercepts encountered at Silica Hill, and it is anticipated they will improve confidence in the refinement and definition of the existing resource.

Project background

The Adyabo project (Adi Dairo and West Shire concessions) covers 264 kmwest of East Africa Metals’ Harvest project and is located in an underexplored part of the Arabian Nubian Shield in Northern Ethiopia. East Africa Metals acquired the Harvest Project from Tigray Resources Inc. in 2014.
