Oklo’s Mali drilling continues to deliver high-grade gold
Link copied to
Special Report: The gold hits continue to pile on for Oklo with its deepest intersection to date at the SK1 South target at its Seko discovery in Mali intersecting a thick zone of mineralisation.
To top it off, the hole at SK1 South ended in mineralisation, with a high grade zone of 2m at 19.64 grams per tonne (g/t) gold at the bottom of a 30m zone grading 3.16g/t gold that starts from a depth of 162m.
Other notable results at SK1 South are 10m at 4.04g/t gold from 11m including 3m at 8.30g/t gold and 5m at 5.36g/t gold from 86m including 2m at 11.89g/t gold.
Results above 5g/t gold are generally considered to be high-grade.
Oklo Resources (ASX:OKU) added that shallow high-grade gold of 2m at 11.97g/t gold from 21m was intersected at the SK4 target about 700m northeast of SK1.
“We are encouraged by the latest results from SK1 South with the deepest hole drilled to date intersecting a thick zone of medium-grade gold mineralisation,” managing director Simon Taylor said.
“Additionally, the most southern line at SK1 South continues to extend this zone which will be further tested along strike to the south and at depth.
“These results coupled with the emergence of a new high-grade zone at SK4 some 700m to the north east of SK1 bodes well for further drilling success at Seko.”
The new hits follow on from drilling at the SK1 North target that returned gold mineralisation associated with wide zones of hydrothermal alteration.
Drilling is ongoing at Seko, Keko and other extensions to the Dandoko gold system in advance of finalising the maiden resource estimate during the current quarter while assays for a further 143 holes are pending.
Oklo previously outlined extensive oxide-hosted gold mineralisation along the roughly 3km SK1 North-SK1 South-Koko trend.
It is currently focused on completing the oxide zone definition drilling in advance of finalising the resource estimate.
Drilling to date has indicated that SK1 South remains open along strike and at depth.
