Metallurgical Testwork Obtains 89.4% Recoveries At Enchi Gold Project
Newcore Gold Ltd (TSXV: NCAU) has intersected 1.27 g/t Au over 27m at the Boin Gold Deposit with the company’s 100% owned Enchi Gold Project in Ghana.
The company has reported additional results from an ongoing 58,000m drill programme at Enchi as well as positive results from metallurgical testwork, with samples achieving an average gold recovery of 89.4%.
Drill results from the additional holes drilled at Boin include:
- Hole KBRC163 intersected 1.27 g/t Au over 27.0 m from 27 m to 54 m (oxide zone).
- Hole KBRC169 intersected 1.41 g/t Au over 14.0 m from 55 m to 69 m, including 2.86 g/t Au over 6.0 m from 62 m to 68 m (oxide zone).
- Hole KBRC175 intersected 0.65 g/t Au over 22.0 m from 67 m to 89 m (oxide zone).
President and CEO, Luke Alexander, said rilling on the Project continues with three rigs currently on site, and an additional two rigs anticipated to be on-site by the end of January.
“We continue to have strong results from the drilling that is underway at our Enchi Gold Project in Ghana,” Mr Alexander said.
“These results followed-up on the initial positive results we released in 2020 from Boin and continue to extend the deposit along strike, reinforcing the potential for resource growth at our existing deposits at Enchi.
“To date we have released results for less than 25% of the total planned 58,000m programme that is underway, and as such we look forward to continuing to prove out the potential of our district-scale Project.”
Vice President of Exploration, Greg Smith, said drilling at the Boin Gold Deposit at Enchi continues to extend the strike length of the deposit, with further drilling on this area planned in 2021 as the company accelerates the pace of its drill programme.
“The results of the metallurgical testwork continue to confirm the excellent characteristics of the oxide material with an average recovery of 89.4% achieved from 24-hour bottle roll tests completed on 49 samples taken from our two primary resource areas at Enchi, the Boin and Sewum Gold Deposits.”
A total of 18,149n in 113 holes have been completed as part of the ongoing 2020 – 2021 drill programme at Enchi.
