Rift Valley Resources commenced drilling at its wholly owned Miyabi Gold Project in Tanzania last week
Rift Valley Resources, the ASX-listed African explorer, has confirmed gold mineralisation at two deposits at its Miyabi gold project.

Tanzania – This was determined from the first assay results from its current drilling programme Rift Valley Resources indicates.

Initial (composite) assay results were received from reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the Dalafuma and Dalafuma NW prospect areas.

Best intersections

MBRC 429 – 21 m @ 4.61 g/t gold – including 9 m @ 9.23 g/t gold

MBRC 425 – 15 m @ 2.49 g/t gold – including 3 m @ 8.68 g/t gold

MBRC 431 – 12 m @ 2.33 g/t gold – including 6 m @ 3.84 gold

MBRC 426 – 21 m @ 1.44 g/t gold

Rift Valley Resources also notes that there are broad zones of near surface gold mineralisation, which also remains open along strike and at depth.

Significantly, the mineralisation at Dalafuma remains open to the east and at depth. At Dalafuma NW, the mineralisation remains open to the west and at depth.

The intersections reported pertain to 3 m composite samples.  1 m re-splits of these intersections will be submitted for analysis and incorporation into an updated resource estimate.

Due to delays in assay turnaround the drilling operations at Miyabi were suspended mid-July.  The programme has now recommenced and will continue to test the extents of the mineralisation delineated to date.
