Currently exploring the Siguiri and Balandougouba gold projects within the highly prospective Birimian Gold Belt of northeast Guinea.

West Africa ranks as one of the top gold regions in the world and the Guinea portion of the belt is one of the most under-explored.

Siguiri Project - Overview

Siguiri North and South Blocks (248 km2) cover a north-northeast trending +60 km long auriferous shear zone hosted in Birimian sediments and volcaniclastic rocks. The project is located 230 km south of Bamako and 30 km east of AngloGold’s SAG mine (300,000 oz/y gold production) and is accessed by paved highway. Historic exploration programs (2003-2011) included:

Siguiri North

  • Soil survey (15,000 samples)
  • Pit sampling (11,033 samples)
  • IP (310 line km)
  • Airborne VTEM (87.5 km2)
  • Drilling (AC – 10,515 m, RAB – 7,837 m, RC – 38,235 m)

Siguiri South

  • Soil survey (5,500 samples)
  • Airborne VTEM (85 km2)
  • Drilling (AC – 3,200 m)

The Siguiri North block covers 18 of the 60 km long shear zone and has seen the most exploration work to date. It hosts several gold deposits (FK, Tinko, Shawn) that are open along strike and at depth. Selected historic drill intersections are:

  • FK 12 m @ 3.35 g/t gold
  • FK 23 m @ 1.86 g/t gold
  • Tinko 25 m @ 1.64 g/t gold
  • Shawn 31 m @ 2.91 g/t gold
  • Shawn 42 m @3.33 g/t gold

A comprehensive drill program (nearly 10,000 m) was completed in 2014 and a NI43-101 compliant resource estimate has been completed with the results as below:
