Roxgold Inc. (TSXV:ROG) announced results from the current infill drilling program at the Yaramoko Concession in Burkina Faso. Drill hole YRM-DD-13-263 intersected 16.8 grams per tonne of gold over 6.0 meters within a wider intercept of 6.7 gpt over 29.1 meters.
As quoted in the press release:
- 16.8 grams per tonne gold (“gpt”) over 6.0 meters within a wider intercept of 6.7 gpt over 29.1 meters in drill hole YRM-DD-13-263
- 28.8 gpt gold over 3.8 meters within a wider intercept of 17.1 gpt over 6.9 meters in drill hole YRM-DD-12-242.
- 20.6 gpt gold over 4.6 meters within a wider intercept of 15.6 gpt over 6.9 meters in drill hole YRM-DD-13-264
- 7.9 gpt gold over 3 meters in drill hole YRM-13-DD-259 which tested a cross structure on the western side of the 55 Zone.
*All intercepts above are reported as core length, estimated true widths are reported in Table 1.
Roxgold President and CEO John Dorward said:
Today’s results continue to add to the growing high grade story of the 55 Zone. Hole 263 is a very strong intercept in terms of both grade and width and in a key part of the deposit. Infill drilling between 400 and 750 meters depth continues to add bulk to the down plunge extension of the 55 Zone. In addition, with mineralization intersected in cross structures higher up in the system, we remain confident in the ability of our deposit to keep growing.
