Mako Gold Limited (“Mako” or “the Company”; ASX:MKG) is pleased to advise that it has received assay results from the final 10 diamond drill (DD) holes at the Tchaga Prospect, within the Company’s flagship Napié Project in Côte d’Ivoire. Tchaga is located on a +23km soil anomaly and coincident 30km-long Napié Fault (Figure 3).


Significant mineralisation was intersected in all 10 holes drilled at Tchaga, with deep high-grade results returned such as 19.6m at 4.36g/t Au in NARC621DD, and 4.5m at 6.92g/t Au which includes 1m at 29.46g/t Au in NARC512DD (Figure 1).

The Company is highly encouraged by the results from deeper DD as this will extend the mineralised zones at depth which should increase the size of the upcoming maiden MRE. In addition, this highlights the potential for extending the resource post the maiden MRE with further drilling at depth (Figure 2).

Intervals above 0.5g/t Au cut-off are reported in Appendix 1. A map of the Tchaga drill hole locations is shown in Appendix 2.

Select significant results from previous drilling at Tchaga1 include:

  • 41m at 4.51g/t Au from 17m in NARC216
  • 32m at 7.1g/t Au from 13m in NARC184
  • 13m at 20.82g/t Au from 32m in NARC145
