Amani to drill over 33,000 meters at Giro gold project

Amani Gold Ltd. started a 3,600-meter drilling program at the Douze Match deposit, part of the Giro gold project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and has plans for a further 30,000 meters of drilling at the Kebigada deposit.

Additional drilling programs will be conducted at the Adoku deposit and the immediate surroundings at Kebigada, where high-grade soil anomalies will be followed up with drilling to delineate potential satellite resources.

In August, Amani revised the maiden resource for the Kebigada deposit to 45.62 million tonnes at 1.46 g/t gold for 2.14 million ounces, at a 0.90 g/t gold cut-off.

The company said Oct. 11 that it retained a mining consultancy to perform an initial scoping study at Kebigada and is also looking for a preferred engineering consultancy to manage a feasibility study.

The Kebigada program will start after Amani completes access to the drilling area, expected within two months, with drilling expected to be completed in the first half of 2018.
