The diamond and reverse circulation drilling at the Maga Hill area of Bomboré has been introduced to follow up on higher than average grade gold mineralisation that was confirmed by the 2018 drilling.

The new drilling programme will cost about USD200 000 and will consist of ~1350m of diamond drilling (DD) and ~600m of reverse circulation drilling (RC). The programme is designed to advance the definition of high-grade shallowly-plunging gold mineralisation on the hanging wall of the main Maga zone.

The first phase of this programme will consist of shallow (<150 m) infill and close-range step-out drilling to confirm the geometry of the mineralised zones and better constrain the new resource model in this area. Results from this drilling are expected to be announced in November 2019, and a follow-up drill programme will be determined based on these results.
