Mako is racing to start reverse circulation and diamond drilling across priority targets at Napié after its Phase-1 drill program exceeded expectations.

The company’s Phase-1 program launched in November 2022 with a clear goal to demonstrate the multi-million-ounce gold potential across the project.

Auger drilling over the Tchaga and Gogbala deposits outlined continuous multi-kilometre auger anomalies, and now Mako Gold’s (ASX:MKG) focus is on tightening up the line and sample spacing, thereby adding more detail to the previously announced anomalies from the first phase.

This will provide more precise drill targets when the company begins a resource expansion drilling program down the track.

Results expected towards end of February

“The infill auger focuses on the highest priority targets outlined in phase 1 so that we can transition quickly to RC/DD drilling these targets, rather than infilling all of the anomalies highlighted in phase 1,” Mako’s MD Peter Ledwidge says.

“RC/DD drilling will resume as soon as results are received.”

A total of 800 drill holes are planned for 8,000m of drilling with five auger rigs on.

First results are expected towards the end of February.
