During the year the company’s technical team have confirmed and defined 3 gold on the 5 Licenses using a combination of archive material, soil/stream geochemistry, remote sensing imagery interpretation, prospecting, geological mapping and rock sampling with significant outcropping gold mineralisations on the gold targets.
In all cases extensive outcropping gold mineralisation is structurally controlled and hosted in Precambrian schists and gneisses of the Sahara Craton. Within the 3 targets (Dorothe, Am Ouchar and Echbara), a significant number of rock chip samples have grades of over 10 g/t and up to 103 g/t Au over footprint of up to 4km2 giving the potential for a multi-
High grade outcropping mineralisation with simple metallurgy provides the opportunity for low capex/opex short term start up optionally for early cash flow and shareholder return.
