Chesser Resources (CHZ) has announced drilling at its Diamba Sud Gold Project in West Africa has returned shallow, high-grade results.
Drilling at the flagship project, which is located near Senegal, had been focused on Area D, where previous high-grade results were reported last month.
This latest program saw a total of three diamond holes and 12 reverse circulation holes drilled for a total of 621 metres and 1726 metres, respectively.
The drilling returned best results of 16 metres at 23.38 g/t gold from 40 metres, including four metres at 74.23 g/t gold from 45 metres.
Other strong results include four metres at 8.29 g/t gold from 16 metres, including
one metre at 24.60 g/t gold from 17 metres and 35 metres at 9.81 g/t gold from two metres, including 20 metres at 15.48 g/t gold from 14 metres.
The dirlling at Diamba also extended the shallow high-grade oxide mineralisation at Area D, which remains open to the northwest and northeast.
Commenting on the results, CHZ Managing Director and CEO Mike Brown said they were the best the company had received so far.
"Two holes from this program reported the highest gram-metre intercepts from the project to date, which is very encouraging at this early stage of the largest drill program undertaken on the property," he explained.
Next steps for Chesser will be to expand the drilling program at Area D in the directions where the mineralisation remains open.
The company is also carrying out drilling at Area A within Diamba and expects results from this program to start coming in shortly.
Shares in Chesser Resources are up a healthy 12.5 per cent trading at 24 cents each at 11:54 am AEDT.
