Apollo’s confidence in the scale of its Kroussou zinc-lead project continues to be validated with drilling intersecting more shallow, high-grade mineralisation at the Dikaki prospect.

Extremely thick and shallow intersections such as 40.0m grading 3.1% zinc+lead from 31.1m and 19.9m at 4.0% zinc+lead from 5.4m have doubled mineralisation and is now defined over 500m of the Eastern Dikaki high-grade zone.

This remains open along trend meaning there is potential for further drilling to extend this zone.

Assays are pending for a further four holes that intersected localised zones of strong visible sulphide mineralisation.

“The excellent results from our ongoing drilling campaign add to our confidence that Kroussou is province-scale and highlights the significant future exploration potential of the project,” managing director Neil Inwood said.

“Drilling is now focussed on expanding our knowledge of regional target prospects TP9 and TP13, whilst we await additional results from the remainder of the Dikaki drilling.

“We have recently commenced an airborne electromagnetic survey covering the entire 80km Kroussou project strike, aiming to highlight further shallow high-grade mineralisation similar to that identified by drilling at Dikaki and Niamabimbou.”

Current and upcoming activity

Apollo is currently focused on regional drill targets with two diamond rigs having drilled 11 holes to date with plans to add TP8 to the target list

The company will carry out field exploration to identify new zones of mineralisation at other defined prospects/regional targets through mapping, rock sampling and soil geochemistry and analyse results from the passive regional seismic program.

It will also perform metallurgical test work to confirm positive high-recovery, high-quality sulphide concentrate production and high level analysis of regional infrastructure options for materials transport.
