Drilling Program At Empire Main And New Charger Target
VANCOUVER - Awale Resources Limited reported that an initial 3000m, 30-hole drill program has commenced over the recently reported Empire Gap, Empire West and Charger targets at the Odienne Project (see Company News Release dated 23rd March 2021). The Odienne Project drilling will then be immediately followed by a 3000-5000m scout drilling program over new gold targets at the Bondoukou Project.
Drilling at Odienne will focus on the following: Resource definition drilling at Empire Main, where the footprint of the initial 200m long discovery zone has now been extended to 900m. Drilling to now focus on: The Empire Gap Target, a SE off-set extension to the Empire Main discovery with a peak value of 1.7 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold in auger drilling within an overall 250m long, >50 parts per billion ("ppb") gold in auger anomaly, and the Empire West extensions of Empire Main, where a peak soil gold value of 731ppb has been defined within a narrow but continuous 350m long >30ppb gold anomaly; and Discovery drilling at the new Charger target, where a compelling 600 meter long >90ppb 'bullseye' gold in auger anomaly has been defined with a peak value of 0.56 g/t Au. Charger lies approximately 3km North of Empire main.
CEO Glen Parsons, said, “We are excited to announce that the drill is turning again at the Empire project. These multiple brownfield and greenfield targets highlight the gold prospectivity of the Empire Corridor and the greater Odienne Project, reinforcing Awale Resources ability to continually unlock and develop the potential for a significant gold camp in Cote d'Ivoire.
We look forward to announcing results from Empire and Charger as they become available".
