Arrow Minerals Ltd (ASX:AMD) has used steam sediment geochemical samples to define a new anomalous gold system covering 50 square kilometres within the Vranso Gold Project in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
The gold system was identified with modern exploration techniques novel to the area, with stream sediment samples indicating gold mineralisation has drained from greenstones into a regional mineralised structure.
Stream sediment geochemistry program
Arrow Minerals took a total of 220 samples from drainage systems within the northern exploration permits covering 580 square kilometres of the project.
The analytical results have highlighted multiple drainage system with elevated gold levels, consistent with shedding from a 50 square kilometre area alone a regional north-west to south-east trending fault.
This fault is interpreted to be an extension of the same mineralised structure that hosts the Sanguie, Guido and Semapoun prospects to the south.
Arrow believes these results indicate the potential for extensive gold mineralisation to occur within this greenfield area.
A broad-spaced soil geochemistry program is now underway within the anomalous area and surrounds to assist with homing in on the main mineralised gold system.
