Special Report: Golden Rim Resources has returned to drilling at the Kouri gold project in Burkina Faso, as it continues its march towards becoming a +2-million-ounce company.
Drilling is now underway at the Diabatou prospect where previous drilling had returned a heart-stopping intersection of 1m at 783.8 grams per tonne gold from 44m within a wider and still bonanza-grade zone of 7m at 121.2g/t gold from 41m.
Golden Rim (ASX:GMR) also intends to undertake further drilling near its 1.4 million ounce Kouri deposit to further expand the existing resource.
Drilling is planned at the high-grade, 4km-long Maré – Guitorga North anomaly which is just 500m from to the existing 1.4moz Kouri resource.
The company also intends to test a further 500m of strike extent to the Kouri gold lodes that extend into the neighbouring Gouéli and Margou permits.
Infill drilling will also be conducted to increase the higher confidence indicated portion of the Kouri resource.
Golden Rim had previously completed 7800m of its 21,000m drill program before it was suspended due to the start of the rainy season.
It plans to explore the entire Diabatou granite area, along with the remainder of the recently acquired Margou and Gouéli permit areas, with auger drilling and geophysical surveys.
This exploration program is expected to start in mid-October.
