Ghana – ASX-listed gold explorer Cardinal Resources has intercepted wide gold mineralisation at its Namdini gold project in Ghana while undertaking its new reverse circulation (RC) drill programme.

The 13 RC drill holes include:

  • 83m @ 1.41 g/t from 13m vertical depth
  • 67m @ 1.78 g/t from surface
  • 51m @ 1.02 g/t from 35m vertical depth
  • 48m @ 1.15 g/t from 19m vertical depth

The results reported from the 13-hole RC drilling on the Namdini project are extremely encouraging owing to the wide intersections of gold mineralisation, says Cardinal Resources MD Archie Koimtsidis.

“The width of these new zones of gold mineralisation range from 120m to 230m across strike, while the wide gold intersections range from surface to very shallow depths which further enhances the gold potential of this project,” he adds.

The granitoids have intruded into the volcaniclastics in the south forming some mixed mineralised zones. The volcaniclastics are developed to the west of the granitoids in narrow zones, but still mineralised. However, to the east of the granitoids, the volcaniclastics are well mineralised for more than 100m across strike, which is very encouraging.

Section G to the north is also mineralised, indicating continuity of the mineralised zone further along strike to a total length of 900m.

The company will continue drilling selective holes, submitting the samples and be on standby as results are received. Once the results have been assessed, Cardinal can plan further drill holes to maximise expansion of the gold inventory within the Namdini project.
