Arrow Minerals drilling confirms near-surface gold discovery at Divole West Gold Project
RC rig on site at Divole West
The first two sections of a 3,000-metre reverse circulation (RC) drilling program (11 holes) have produced significant gold grades and thicknesses on adjacent holes and sections.
Divole West significant drill results
Significant gold intersections, continuous between holes and sections, include:
- 17 metres at 3.3g/t gold from 2 metres, including 13 metres at 3.8g/t gold;
- 33 metres at 1.9g/t gold from 21 metres, including 9 metres at 4.3g/t gold;
- 23 metres at 1.0g/t gold from 22 metres, including 3 metres at 3.2 g/t gold; and
- 7 metres at 2.2g/t gold from 10 metres, including 2 metres at 4.9g/t gold.
Arrow Burkina Faso gold exploration projects
Arrow chief executive officer Howard Golden said: “We are delighted at these results from Divole West, featuring an intersection of 33 metres at 1.9g/t gold in our first drill hole.
“It’s early days in the programme, but particularly gratifying to see these outstanding results in an area with no previous exploration or artisanal workings.
“These results validate Arrow’s project generation methodology and drill targeting process.
“The drilling is now about one-third complete, and we are looking forward to announcing results from the remaining 2 kilometres of anomalous strike length early in the new year.”
Well-funded for more drilling
The initial drilling program is 30% complete and will continue through the end of December with further assay results expected in January
A further 22 holes along strike are in progress to complete the Divole West drilling program.
With adequate funds on hand and a pre-paid drilling contract with Capital Drilling, Arrow is well prepared to complete this drilling phase and additional follow-up drilling to better understand the Divole West gold discovery.
