Cora Gold has announced the sixth set of drill results from its largest ever drilling campaign at its Sanankoro Gold Project in Mali. 

The company remains on schedule to drill up to 35,000 m by end of the programme, with a dual focus on targeting resource growth as well as infill drilling to convert existing Inferred resources to Indicated. 

The results to date have been extremely encouraging with good widths and high-grade results in generally shallow oxides ore. 

Bert Monro, Cora’s CEO, comments:

“This drill programme continues to go from strength to strength. 19m @ 31.56 g/t Au is by far the most significant drill hole that Cora has ever drilled.  This hole sits outside the existing inferred resource pit shell, starting 50 m deeper than the current resource pit shell, so offers even greater upside to the Sanankoro Gold Project. 

“This programme is continuing to deliver very high-grade oxide drill results from shallow depths, offering significant economic potential for the upcoming resource and DFS.

“Zones A and C were historically lower grade than Selin, but these results demonstrate that there is potential for better grades in these deposits. The Company is aiming to complete the 35,000m drill programme over the next month with a resource update due to follow once all the assay results have been received. 

“Once again I would like to thank our team and contractors who are delivering this programme on the ground over a very long field season.  The quality and efficiency of their work has been extremely impressive, and I am very pleased that the results are matching their efforts!”
