Taruga Gold has intercepted 7m at 4.3g/t gold from its trench sampling Nangalasso project in Southern Mali. The high-grade gold mineralised results from reconnaissance trench sampling demonstrate the highly prospective nature of Nangalasso Project, which was acquired by Taruga as part of its major ground position in Côte d’Ivoire and Mali.

“The results at the Nangalasso Project continue to be very exciting. All the early stage exploration, including geochemical sampling, trenching and reconnaissance aircore drilling, highlight the potential for an extensive mineralised system to be defined. The project is very under-explored despite being located in an extensively mineralised area in southern Mali, less than 20km from the 7Moz Syama Gold Mine,” Taruga’s Managing Director Bernard Aylward said.

“These recent trench results extend the gold mineralisation a minimum 200m north of the wide-spaced reconnaissance drilling that returned gold mineralised intersections. Our geological interpretation indicates that the project is located in a highly prospective region with extensive geological structures with surface geochemical gold anomalism.

“We are continuing our exploration program at Nangalasso with an aircore drilling program to commence in January. The drilling will target four priority areas defined by extensive artisanal workings, strong gold anomalism from reconnaissance exploration and follow-up to previous gold intersections from reconnaissance drilling. In addition, we will continue geochemical sampling, trenching and geological mapping of this highly prospective project area.”
