Tietto Minerals has reported the Mineral Resource Estimate for its Abujar Gold Project in Côte d’Ivoire has increased to 3.35 Moz gold and Abujar continues on track as West Africa’s next gold mine.
Tietto MD, Dr Caigen Wang, said:
“Our diamond drilling teams delivered more than 53,000 m of diamond core for this update and the results further de‐risk our Abujar resource base. We have substantially increased indicated resources to 1.85 Moz for AG and delivered a maiden Indicated Resource at APG.
“Our resource base has increased at both deposits and we have done this whilst maintaining the grade of these resources. The updated resource model has reported an increase in confidence driven by our diamond drilling program.
“We expect this will support a material increase in our Ore Reserves as mining engineers complete the mine optimisation phase of the DFS this Quarter.
“We have a target of first gold in Q4,2022 from Abujar, to be West Africa’s next gold mine. We are funded to complete our twin strategy of maintaining our aggressive exploration program while developing a gold mine at Abujar.”
