Birimian Gold has commenced a 4,000m aircore drilling programme at its Dankassa gold project in Mali, West Africa.
The programme will identify the source of high tenor gold anomalies in the northern and central portions of the Dankassa gold trend in the north of the Dankassa project area.
The drilling follows up a recently defined, highly anomalous 12km long gold trend at the Dankassa gold project in Mali.
Auger and aircore drilling programmes at the Dankassa gold trend identified a coherent bedrock gold anomaly that extends for 12km in a north-south direction.
Results showed assays of 6 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 1.26 g/t gold from auger drilling.
The programme also yielded thick, shallow, drill intersections of 8m at 1.29g/t gold from 16m, 46m at 0.48g/t gold from 8m including 12m at 1g/t gold from 36m and 16m at 0.56g/t gold from 28m.
Birimian Gold said these drill results, including work over the last eight months, has confirmed the presence of significant bedrock gold mineralisation.
The new drilling programme is the company's third in the last eight months, with results expected to be revealed over the coming months.
Birimian Gold is active in several gold projects in West Africa, considered a gold rich region which has produced in excess of 250 million ounces of gold from large, low cost mines.
