SearchGold Resources Inc. provide additional technical details on the 400 km2 Arae-Gassel Gold Property located in northern Burkina Faso, West Africa, where it has an option to acquire 100% interest from Somika SARL.
Recent compilation has highlighted the Inata-Kerboule shear as a major regional structure over 30 km in strike length which is host to Wega Mining’s 1.4 million oz Au Inata deposit(i) 15 km south of SearchGold’s property. This large scale system shows subsidiary shears and the presence of intrusive rocks, two key drivers for mineralization.
The 5 km Kerboule-Yalema gold trend recognized on SearchGold’s property, characteristic of such subsidiary shears structures, is here part of a typical larger scale auriferous system hosted in a classic volcano-sedimentary package with sericite, carbonate, K-feldspar and albite alteration in association with an intermediate porphyritic intrusive, as intersected in the Kerboule south drilling program.
On the Kerboule-Yalema gold trend, the high grade nature of the mineralization was confirmed with the recent sampling by SearchGold of 1 to 3 kg surface rock samples which yielded grades of 95.33 g/t Au, 8.42 g/t Au, 7.72 g/t Au and 6.15 g/t Au.
