Mako Gold (MKG) is up more than 22 per cent today after intersecting up to 102.5g/t gold from the Tchaga Prospect.

The Tchaga Prospect lies within Mako's Napié Project in Côte d'Ivoire.

Mako has received an additional five assay results from a 10,000-metre drilling program that began in late June.

This program will be broken down into 9000 metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling and 1000 metres of diamond drilling with aims to outline a JORC compliant maiden resource for Tchaga.

Mako has now received assay results for 24 of the planned 90 holes with the program expected to be completed in December 2020.

Significant results include 13 metres at 20.82g/t gold from 32 metres including nine metres at 29.45g/t gold and one metre at 102.5g/t gold.

"We are very encouraged by our latest drilling results that demonstrate thick and high-grade gold mineralisation within 50 vertical metres of surface and open in multiple directions," Managing Director Peter Ledwidge said.

"This has provided us with greater geological insight within our project area and allowed us to define a range of new drill targets. We will be targeting more of these dilation zones in future drilling while also testing along the north-south structures," he added.

Mako's share price is still up a healthy 22.7 per cent and shares are trading for 13.5 cents each at 1:52 pm AEST.
