Mako Gold (MKG) has struck up to 101 grams per tonne (g/t) gold at the Tchaga North prospect, within the Napié Project in Côte d’Ivoire.

The company received all pending assay results from a recent shallow aircore drilling program at both the Tchaga North and Komboro prospects. The average depth of the holes was 28 metres, with each ending within the oxide zone.

More than 150 holes were drilled at Tchaga North, which returned a two-kilometre-long gold mineralised zone, intersecting up to four metres at 101.31 g/t gold.

Mako’s Managing Director, Peter Ledwidge said the company is delighted with the results of the work at Tchaga.

“The results received from the aircore drilling in conjunction with our mapping and rock chip sampling has identified a two-kilometre-long high priority mineralised area which we will reverse circulation drill test following the current wet season,” Peter Ledwidge said.

Meanwhile, Mako has launched a 2700-metre reverse circulation program at the Komboro prospect. Targets were identified through recent aircore drilling, where 192 shallow holes were drilled on six targets.

“We are very excited by the compelling targets we are drilling, which are generated from geological mapping, rock chip sampling and aircore drilling,” Mr Ledwidge commented.

Mako Gold explained both drilling plans were part of a broader strategy to outline a multi-million-ounce deposit.

The upcoming maiden mineral resource estimate at the Tchaga and Gogbala prospects is on schedule for delivery in mid-June.

Mako Gold last traded at 8.4 cents on May 31.
