The Kandiole permit was granted in late 2019 and covers 100km2 of highly strategic ground located within 10km of B2 Gold’s operating Fekola mine and IAMGold’s Boto Gold Project.
Initial desktop studies identified numerous targets to be evaluated by auger geochemichal drilling. First pass geochemical auger drilling results for 779 auger holes (average depth 13m) totalling 10,072m were received in late 2020 quarter. The program was designed upon initial field mapping and was prioritised based on geophysical interpretations and field observations.
Four large geochemical gold anomalies were identified over strike lengths up to 2.4km, to be followed up with deeper drill testing.
