Predictive Discovery (PDI) has released initial results from reverse circulation (RC) drilling at its Kaninko Permit, showing wider gold mineralisation at the North East (NE) Bankan section.

The project, located in Guinea, is 100 per cent owned by Predictive Discovery and sits on an underexplored part of the West African Birimian gold belt.

The first batch of assay results from 12 holes, part of a wider RC drill program at the site which began in May, showed best results of 15 metres at 3.42 grams per tonne of gold from surface, including 4 metres at 9.33 grams per tonne of gold.

It also showed a strong result of 33 metres at 1.72 grames per tonne of gold from 67 metres, including 1 metre at 22.1 grames per tonne of gold.

Predictive Discovery Managing Director, Paul Roberts, labelled the initial results as encouraging.

"These initial RC drill results have provided further evidence of shallow and very broad zones of oxide gold mineralisation within the 1.3 kilometre long, broad power auger gold anomaly defined in May and June," he said.

The results also revealed several of the drill holes ended in the transition from weathered to fresh rock, which means further gold grades are possible.

"The Company is further encouraged by continuation of the mineralisation to at least 76m vertical depth in the transition from weathered to fresh rock and remaining open at depth," Paul said.

An additional 36 samples, from RC drilling and diamond drilling, are currently being analysed in the lab with results to be released in the next few weeks.

While drilling at the NE Bankan site continues, with a pause planned in late August or September to assess the results from the program.

Importantly, the drilling program is well funded, as Predictive Discovery recently raised more than $9 million in capital.

The company also said today that a maiden resource estimate for the project will be completed by mid next year.

Shares in Predictive Discovery are trading slightly down despite today's news, as shareholders appear divided by the results.

Shares in the company are trading for 7.7 cents each, down 10.5 per cent, at 12.15 pm AEST.
