Awalé Resources Makes Discovery In Côte d’Ivoire

Intersects Offset Extensions At Empire Main Deposit At Odienné Project

Awalé Resources Limited (TSXV: ARIC) has discovered new mineralised offset extensions to the Empire Main gold deposit at the Odienné Project in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa.

CEO, Glen Parsons, said the diorite mineralisation now has potential for an open strike length of 900m . Results have now been received for 13 Reverse Circulation (RC) holes for 1,224m that were drilled over the Empire Gap and Empire Western extension targets.

Highlights of this programme are:

Drilling has just recommenced at Odienné with these targets to be tested at equivalent vertical depths to OERC-102 (80- 100m – see Long Section). This drilling is targeting high grade mineralisation on 200m of open strike east of OERC-102.

“We are thrilled to have found the offset extensions to the east and west of the Empire Main mineralisation,” Mr Parsons said.

“The team will now continue to carefully follow and target further high-grade mineralisation along the newly discovered Empire Gap zone.

“Furthermore, intercepting mineralisation in the NW offset drilling also reinforces the postulated right stepping en-echelon framework for the Empire Main and supports a new 900m long footprint for the Empire Main mineralisation.

“As of this weekend the drill is turning again at the Empire project, and the team looks forward to further defining the new Empire discoveries as well as the recently reported high grade mineralisation at the Charger Prospect.

“These new brownfield and greenfield targets highlight the gold prospectivity of the Empire Corridor and the greater Odienné Project, emphasizing the team’s ability to continue building gold ounces at Odienné.

“We look forward to announcing results from the recently completed 4385m of drilling over five new targets from the Kodio and Samanda trends at the Bondoukou Project. As well as the new drilling just underway at Empire and Charger as they become available.”
