The final assays results from 49 reverse circulation and diamond drill holes have been returned after extensional drilling was carried out across Mako’s Gogbala prospect in Côte d’Ivoire.

Mako Gold (ASX:MKG) says these latest results demonstrate “excellent down-dip and along strike continuity” of mineralisation and will be used for the upcoming maiden resource estimate anticipated for completion by early to mid-June.

Significant gold mineralisation was intersected in 40 of the 49 holes, including:

  • 11.2m at 7.40g/t gold from 172, including 1m at 54.05g/t gold from 172m
    • With same hole intersections of 4.3m at 5.67g/t gold from 157.3m, including 1.1m at 18.43g/t gold; and 3m at 8.36g/t gold from 175m
  • 13m at 3.34g/t gold from 168m, including 2m at 11.07g/t gold from 175m
  • 11.2m at 3.19g/t gold from 103m; including 1.2m at 11.75g/t gold from 108.2m
  • 6m at 6.65g/t gold from 149m; including 1m at 33.19g/t gold from 154m

Enthused with robust mineralisation

MKG managing director Peter Ledwidge says the company is enthused by the continuity of mineralisation, as this demonstrates how robust mineralisation at Gogbala is turning out to be.

“We are once again highly encouraged, with the high success rate in our drilling with 40 of the 49 holes drilled returning significant gold results,” he says.

RC drilling to kick off shortly

A 2,700m RC drilling program will kick off at the Komboro prospect at Napié shortly, focusing on high-priority targets identified from recent ongoing mapping and rock chip sampling.

Exploration on prospects distal to the maiden MRE form part of Mako’s growth strategy.
