“We are very pleased to have secured a second drill rig for the Napié Project. The second rig will accelerate exploration as we move towards our maiden Mineral Resource Estimate scheduled for the first half of calendar year 2022. Having two drill rigs will allow Mako to focus on drilling the Gogbala Prospect while also completing the extensional diamond drilling (DD) on the Tchaga Prospect. The second rig will also add optionality to test regional targets with the aim of discovering new zones along the 30km Napié fault for future additional resource definition.”
