Arrow Minerals Limited (ASX: AMD) has completed a two-month intensive data compilation and integration exercise capturing historical geochemical, geophysical, and geological information covering the 1,300 sq. km area of the Vranso Project within the world class gold-bearing Paoleoproterozoic Birimian Greenstone, Burkina Faso.
Numerous drill-ready gold prospects have been identified within a 20km radius of the Perkoa Zinc Mine.
Drilling will commence imminently on four of the most advanced gold targets
• Dassa Prospect, previous best intersections of 33m @ 1.9g/t Au and 17m @ 3.3g/t Au
• Guido Prospect, previous best intersections of 13m @ 4.7g/t Au and 12m @ 1.9g/t Au
• Semapoun Prospect, previous best intersections of 4m @ 12.5g/t Au and 6m @ 3.7g/t Au
• Bantole Prospect, previous best intersections of 4m @ >25g/t Au and 4m @ 1.6g/t Au
High Quality Pipeline
Multiple early-stage prospects occurring in the broader Vranso Project area were also identified.
Exploration has commenced to rapidly advance the discovery of new gold systems providing a pipeline of these new prospects to advanced them to a drill-ready status.
• A six-month programme of geological mapping, stream and soil geochemical sampling, airborne and ground geophysical surveys, and Reverse Circulation (RC) and diamond drilling.
• First phase stream sediment geochemical sample collection has been completed on the northern permits, Pilimpikou, Kordie and Viveo (Figure 4) with results anticipated shortly. Field crews are ready to execute follow-up auger soil geochemical sampling surveys this month
Managing Director, Howard Golden, said a detailed airborne magnetic survey scheduled will commence in late November over the Vranso Project area.
Arrow is committed to rapidly advancing exploration on its highly prospective Vranso Project with Technical Director, Hugh Bresser, travelling to Burkina Faso at the start of November to supervise the commencement and implementation of the programme.
“The Vranso Project comprises a portion of the Boromo Belt that has seen little historical gold exploration, sitting in a gap in the belt that hosts numerous multimillion-ounce gold deposits to the north and south of Vranso,” Mr Golden said.
“Arrow recently consolidated the >1,300 sq. km project and compiled the extensive historical data identifying several shallow high-grade gold intersections that have yet to be systematically drilled.
“It is rare to have such high-quality shallow gold results to follow up at this stage of exploration. The table is set for a drilling programme that is designed to deliver results efficiently in an exploration space that already has shallow, high-grade gold results.”
Mr Golden said Arrow is committed to rapidly advancing exploration on its highly prospective Vranso land holding in a known gold producing belt in Burkina Faso.
Technical Director, Hugh Bresser, will depart for Burkina Faso at the start of November to oversee the commencement of the exploration programme. He will remain in country for approximately six weeks to support and assist Arrow’s experienced in country exploration team in the execution of the programme.
