African Gold (A1G) has begun its maiden reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling program at the Didievi Gold Project.

The 391 square kilometre Didievi Project lies within the underexplored Oume-Fetekro Birimian greenstone belt in Côte d’Ivoire.

It lies 65 kilometres east of the country’s capital Yamoussoukro and 250 kilometres northwest of Abidjan.

The 3000-metre drilling program will test high priority targets at the Bluff Gueto Prospect with focus on providing geological and geophysical data.

Once the data has been received, it will be used to create a genetic model for mineralisation.

Previous work at Bluff Gueto has returned results of 37 metres at 7.7g/t gold from 42 metres, 43 metres at 4.3g/t gold from 57 metres and 89 metres at 3g/t gold from zero metres.

Once work wraps up at Bluff Gueto, African Gold will begin drilling at the Pranoi Prospect where a best result of 12 metres at 5.6g/t gold from 24 metres has been returned.

Work will focus on previously untested RC intercepts at BG Central, BG South and BG South West where respective results of 88 metres at 1g/t gold, 12 metres at 2.8g/t gold and 63 metres at 1.06g/t gold have been returned.

“We are very excited to be back in the field and at the prospect of getting our first diamond core holes into our new Bluff Gueto and Pranoi prospects, not to mention trenching and ultimately drilling the seven other undrilled targets on the rest of the Didievi Permit,” CEO and Exploration Manager Glen Edwards commented.

“After spending a significant amount of time on the ground over the past few months I am convinced that the Didievi has all the right geological ingredients for a big gold system,” he added.

Drilling is expected to take two months to complete with results planned to be released once all samples have been received.

African Gold has ended the day 3.77 per cent in the green with shares trading at 27.5 cents in a $25.04 million market cap.
