A 35-hole 3,472m reverse circulation drilling program over three prospects at the Vranso Project has extended the strike length of the gold-bearing Dassa system by 1,000m.

Drilling over high priority prospects (Dassa, Guido, and Semapoun) has increased the Dassa gold system in Burkina Faso while drilling at two other prospects continues to confirm and validate gold targets.

Dassa is a near-surface, mostly oxidised gold mineralised system where six shallow RC holes were drilled to test for a further southern extension.

Gold analytical results confirmed the continuation of the mineralised system at the Dassa prospect with one hole intersecting 1.41g/t Au over 5m from 59m.

Arrow Minerals (ASX:AMD) says this result increases the interpreted strike of the known shallow oxide mineralised system to more than 4km.

Further exploration drilling will be carried out to clearly define the extent and magnitude of Dassa, the company says.

At Guido, Arrow undertook a 19-hole RC drilling program for 2,288m where hits of up to 1.06g/t gold over 17m from 21m was returned, as well as 2.17g/t gold over 8m from 83m and 0.92g/t gold over 11m from 145m.

The Semapoun prospect on the other hand lies within the structural corridor defined by the main Boromo Shear Zone North of the Guido prospect.

Arrow drilled 10 RC holes (760m) to test for gold mineralisation, with the best result returning 1.06g/t Au over 6m from 31m.

Various works such as detailed geology, structural studies, mapping, and sampling are being undertaken at Semapoun.
