Eagle Eye Metals Limited (ASX:EYE) is pleased to announce that it has commenced its inaugural drilling program at the Kourouba Prospect, located within the Company’s Dankassa Gold Project, in southern Mali.
A coherent gold in soil geochemical anomaly extending over more than 5,000 metres of strike has been delineated previously at the Kourouba Prospect. Very limited, wide-spaced, shallow, reverse circulation (RC) drilling has been undertaken by a previous operator. This comprised a total of 58 holes drilled on sections spaced 250 to 1,000 metres apart. Considerable ore-grade gold mineralisation was intersected, including:
– 10m at 5.75 g/t gold
– 20m at 2.17 g/t gold
– 40m at 1.06 g/t gold
– 14m at 1.76 g/t gold
– 12m at 1.81 g/t gold
Mineralisation at the Kourouba Prospect remains open in all directions. The Company believes there is considerable potential to discover additional gold mineralisation with infill, extensional and deeper drilling.
The Company’s initial drilling program will comprise ~2,500 metres of RC drilling. This will test for strike extensions of the known high-grade mineralisation within the centre of the soil geochemical anomaly. Drilling will also test for extensions of high-grade gold mineralisation at depth.
