The Boulsa Project covers 684km2 of licences located in the highly gold-endowed Markoye Fault corridor which hosts several gold mines and pre-development resource projects, including the Essakane mine 200km to the north, the largest gold producer in Burkina Faso, and the Taparko mine 90km to the north of Boulsa. To the south of Boulsa, also on the prospective Markoye Fault, sits the Sanbrado project of West African Resources (ASX: WAF) and B2Gold’s Kiaka project. The Sanbrado gold project, located just 40km south of Boulsa, hosts a 3.1Moz gold resource, including the high grade M1 South deposit (1Moz gold resource at 14.1g/t Au).
Arrow proposes to complete detailed regolith and landform mapping prior to planning surface geochemical sampling programmes in areas of gold anomalous stream catchments. Geological mapping will be completed to provide context for ranking defined by the geochemical work.
