Golden Rim hits new 1.7km-long high-grade gold target at Kouri

Special Report: In June, Golden Rim acquired ground next door to its flagship 1.4moz Kouri gold project in Burkina Faso. This unexplored tenure has become an astonishing high-grade treasure trove in its own right.
This new ground, north of Kouri, is where Golden Rim (ASX:GMR) hit that astounding +783g/t intercept underneath some artisanal gold workings at the Diabatou prospect in August.
Golden Rim is now targeting Diabatou with a drilling blitz to find out how significant this find really is.
But it’s probably just the beginning. The explorer has just located a second significant anomaly associated with high-grade gold at the Diabatou South East prospect, about 2.5km from Diabatou.
This newly discovered anomaly extends for 1.7km.
Surface rock chip samples from Diabatou South East include high grades like 21.2g/t, 21.1g/t, 9.2g/t and 5.2g/t gold.
It’s looking very similar to Diabatou, where rock chip samples up to 14.7g/t gold were found 110m south of the initial anomaly, Golden Rim says.
“Given the bonanza results of the previous drilling of the initial IP anomaly at the Diabatou prospect, the coincident IP anomaly and zone of gold-bearing quartz veins at the Diabatou South East prospect offer an exciting new target for follow up drilling which is planned to commence shortly,” the explorer told investors.
The Company’s current 9,200m RC, 4,000m diamond and 15,000m auger drilling blitz in the wider Kouri project area is progressing well, the company says. Assays for the first diamond hole at Diabatou are expected shortly.
