Mako’s Managing Director, Peter Ledwidge commented:

“We are very pleased with the ongoing outstanding results from our drilling programs at both the Gogbala and Tchaga prospects at Napié. We are highly encouraged by the drill results which will add potential ounces to the upcoming maiden Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) scheduled for H1CY22.

Tchaga drilling has focussed on extensional drilling which will bolster the MRE, while Gogbala drilling is testing new targets as well as extensional drilling to increase the size of the upcoming MRE. Drilling on both Tchaga and Gogbala resumed on 4 January after a short break for the holiday season. We look forward to providing further results as assays are received.”
