THE DRILL SERGEANT: Predictive Discovery (ASX: PDI) RELEASED results from a recently completed step-out RC drilling program at the company’s Boundiali project, located in Cote D’Ivoire.
Predictive Discovery explained these new results come from part of the Resolute Mining (ASX: RSG) Joint Venture exploration program in Cote D’Ivoire that is currently focused on the Boundiali and Ferkessedougou North projects, each of which contain recent gold discoveries and are considered to have excellent potential to find further gold mineralisation.
The JV completed a 16-hole step-out program in June 2019 to follow-up a 31-hole infill RC drilling program that was carried out in March-April.
This new program extended infill drill coverage to approximately 920m of mineralised strike on the Nyangboue gold prospect with the RC holes designed to explore for mineralisation both up-dip and down-dip of earlier intercepts and along strike of the earlier infill drill lines.
Better intercepts (0.25g/t gold cut-off grade) included:
3 metres at 14.97g/t gold from 9m;
13m at 1.92g/t gold from 68m;
16m at 1.64g/t gold from 7m;
10m at 2.32g/t gold from 146m;
4m at 3.56g/t gold from 109m;
5m at 2.31g/t gold from 29m;
6m at 2.48g/t gold from 71m;
6m at 2.68g/t gold from 116m; and
7m at 1.92g/t gold from 112m.
“These new results from Nyangboue add to the picture obtained in the April-May infill drilling program of a series of north-striking, sub-parallel, gold-mineralised zones dipping shallowly to the west,” Predictive Discovery managing director Paul Roberts said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“Given that the mineralisation is open to the north, south and down dip, there is clearly more drilling to be done at Nyangboue to determine the full size of the gold mineralised system.
“When combined with the new gold mineralisation discovered in the Boundiali North permit, the potential scale of the mineralised systems at Boundiali continue to grow.
“Release of these results is a great start to the joint venture relationship with new partner Resolute Mining.
“We look forward to working with Resolute to uncover more gold in the Boundiali project and across our Joint Venture projects in Cote D’Ivoire.”
