¹Full contact information for Simone is available on its website.
Martin Pawlitschek, President and CEO commented: “As we start the year with a significant work program underway at our Bantabaye gold project, we are looking forward to working with Simone Capital”.
Sanu Gold’s flagship Bantabaye project lies on the western margin of Guinea’s prolific Siguiri Basin, approximately 50 km south of the multi-million ounce Lefa Gold Mine and 80 km north of the multi-million ounce Bankan Gold Project, one of the most significant new gold discoveries in West Africa in recent years.
In H1 2023, the Company completed an inaugural drill program at Bantabaye, comprised of 3,198 m in 28 reverse circulation (“RC”) drill holes. This work provided an initial test of three of ten target areas and resulted in a near-surface, high-grade discovery at Target 2, with 11.4 g/t Au over 15 m, including 41.2 g/t Au over 4m starting at 36 m downhole.
In Q3 2023, the Company conducted a rock chip and channel sampling program at Target 7, within a 700 m long area extensively worked by small-scale artisanal miners located 1.4 km east of Target 2. Channel sampling of mineralized exposures returned 1.2 g/t Au over 40 m, including 5.4 g/t Au over 4 m and 1.1 g/t Au over 43 m, including 4.2 g/t Au over 6 m; both channels were continuously mineralized along their length and ended in mineralization. Rock chip samples returned up to 189.7 g/t Au (see Sanu Gold news releases dated Sept. 6 and 12, 2023).
Positive initial cyanide leach test results completed in Q4 2023 returned 92 to 93% average gold recoveries from the main mineralized rock types drilled in the inaugural program, demonstrating highly favorable gold recoveries may be achieved with cyanide leaching (see Sanu Gold news release dated November 16, 2023).
In Q4 2023, the Company announced the commencement of a ground geophysics program with up to 90 line km of Gradient Array IP/Resistivity, up to 9 line km of Pole-Dipole Array IP/Resistivity and up to 90 line km of Ground Mag planned. Preliminary results show a zone of elevated chargeability and resistivity coincident with Target 2 and extending for at least 300 m to the west of the area drilled and a similar distance to the east (see Sanu Gold news releases dated Dec. 12, 2023 and Jan. 3, 2024). This survey is ongoing and additional results will be reported when received and interpreted. The primary objective of this work is to refine target definition for follow up drilling, which is planned to commence later in Q1 2024.
About Sanu Gold
Sanu Gold is a publicly traded exploration company focused on a portfolio of highly prospective gold projects in Guinea, West Africa’s Siguiri Basin.
West Africa is the number one gold mining region in the world and Guinea’s Siguiri Basin is a prolific, yet underexplored part of this region. Despite being home to both long-lived multi-million ounce gold mines and recently commissioned gold mines, Guinea’s Siguiri Basin continues to produce important new gold discoveries.
Sanu Gold has defined multi-kilometer long gold-bearing structures on each of its three exploration permits and is targeting near-surface multi-million ounce gold discoveries. Initial drill programs on the first two permits drilled have yielded high-grade gold discoveries. The Company is operated by a highly experienced team, with successful records of discovery, resource development and mine permitting across West Africa.
The scientific and technical information contained in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Serigne Dieng, Ph.D., M.Sc., a Member (MAIG) of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG), Exploration Manager of the Company and a qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
