“Arrow is now pursuing an aggressive exploration advertising campaign to outline shallow gold deposits amenable to open pit mining in an space with fantastic infrastructure inside Burkina Faso,” says MD.
Arrow Minerals Ltd (ASX:AMD) hAs a Outcome of the reverse circulation drill spinning in a 6,000-metre drilling program On the Vranso Enterprise, Burkina Faso, to systematically look at for in depth shallow extreme-grade gold mineralisation at 4 prospects.
These superior stage drill-ready prospects – Dassa, Guido, Semapoun and Bantole – are inside a 20-kilometres radius of the Perkoa Zinc Mine and have been recognized Adjust toing A information compilation and integration practice.
This work captured historic geochemical, geophysical and geological information from the project That is Contained in the gold-bearing Palaeoproterozoic Birimian Greenstone belt.
“Gold exploration alternative”
Arrow’s managing director Howard Golden said: “The commencement of Arrow’s drilling program on the Vranso Enterprise is the end Outcome of a concerted effort, Adjust toing the identification of A strong gold exploration alternative by The agency.
“We now have consolidated an enviable land place in a prolific gold belt with An limitless cache of historic knowledge that has sat dormant When it Includes gold exploration for the previous 10 years.”
Vranso Enterprise in central Burkina Faso is Within the underexplored gold-bearing Paleoproterozoic Birimian Greenstone Belt.
“Arrow is now pursuing an aggressive exploration advertising campaign to outline shallow gold deposits amenable to open pit mining in an space with fantastic infrastructure inside Burkina Faso,” Golden said.
“With an expert and properly-funded group in place, a multi-faceted area program Shall be executed over The approaching months.”
Following up gold end outcomes
The RC drill program Is predicted to comprise about 50 holes to Adjust to up earlier end outcomes:
- Dassa – earlier Greater of 33 metres at 1.9 g/t gold and 17 metres at 3.3 g/t;
- Guido – 13 metres at 4.7 g/t and 12 metres at 1.9 g/t;
- Semapoun – 4 metres at 12.5 g/t and 6 metres at 3.7 g/t; and
- Bantole – 4 metres at >25 g/t and 4 metres at 1.6 g/t.
Guido, Semapoun and Bantole prospects are inside 20 kilometres of the central Perkoa Zinc Mine processing facility with Dassa simply to the west of Poa.
In prolific area
Vranso project is 100 kilometres west of the capital Ouagadougou and consists of 10 semi-contiguous exploration permits extfinishing for Greater than 80 kilometres alongside The primary NE-SW trfinishing Boromo Shear Zone, host to pretty A pair of multi-million-ounce gold deposits collectively with Bissa, Bouly, Poura and Batie West.
The project covers Greater than 1,300 sq. kilometres of the richly gold finishowed Paleoproterozoic Birimian Greenstone Belt, Almost all of which is but to be evaluated using trfinishy gold exploration methods.
This primary half of Arrow’s multi-faceted exploration program is anticipated to take six-months To finish and consists of RC drilling, geological mapping, stream and soil geochemical sampling, airborne and floor geophysical surveys, and diamond drilling to be accomplished by Arrow’s native group Together with technical director Hugh Bresser.
Results Shall be launched As a Outcome of the drilling progresses with completion of the drilling anticipated in early 2022.
