Toronto, Canada — MINGREVIEW.COM — 06 February 2009 – African Aura Resources Limited – an exploration company with gold, iron ore and uranium exploration activities in sub-Saharan Africa – is making encouraging progress with its 100%- owned Batouri gold project in eastern Cameroon.
A progress update released here revealed that latest drilling results – involving 55 holes for a total of 5 671m – had confirmed the presence of what it described as “a significant gold system.”
It added that Phase Two drilling had commenced, and would focus on systematically testing Kambele South, from where the best drilling results have been received to date. An initial nine holes would be drilled to step out from the known mineralisation, followed by infill of up to 30 drill holes to depths of 110m across five fences to potentially define an initial resource estimate for this zone.
CEO John Gray commented: “These most recent assay results from diamond drilling continue to support previous indications that there is a significant, high-grade vein and stock-work hosted gold system at Kambele. A resource definition drilling programme has now commenced, and we look forward to updating shareholders as results are received.”
Drilling is also continuing at the company’s nearby Dimako and Amndobi projects.
