Taruga Gold has delivered high-grade gold mineralised results from geochemical sampling of major artisanal workings and additional intersections from ongoing trench sampling at its highly prospective Nangalasso Project located in Mali, West Africa. The Nangalasso project was acquired by Taruga as part of its major ground position in Côte d’Ivoire and Mali.
“We are continuing our exploration program at the exciting Nangalasso Project.,” said Bernard Aylward, Taruga managing director. “Our first program sampling shaft material from selected sites across the Sotian artisanal workings has successfully shown the potential for high-grade gold mineralisation.
“The artisanal workings cover a very large area of 1 000 by 700 m with the site expanding as work continues. Our initial program commenced with only 30 samples collected and the number of significant gold values returned is very encouraging and warrant immediate follow-up work.
“The program has highlighted significant geological structures and high – priority targets. Our first pass exploration program continues to return very encouraging results with high – grade gold mineralisation returned in geochemical sampling, trench sampling and reconnaissance aircore drilling. We are reviewing our sampling of the Sotian artisanal workings and determining the most appropriate method of sampling that may include bulk sampling of the shallow material and drill testing of the bedrock geology.”
