Oklo’s Yanfolila permit is located in southern Mali, 45km north of Avnel Gold’s Kalana gold mine (2.1Moz) and 35km east of Hummingbird Resources’ Komana gold project (1.8Moz).
First pass drilling at the Solona Main prospect in 2012 returned significant intersections including 26.5m at 3.59g/t gold and 15.6m at 2.01g/t gold within an extensive gold-in-soil anomaly that extends for over 2km and has been tested by limited drilling.
During 2015, the Company completed a shallow AC drilling program testing a new gold geochemical anomaly outlined by soil sampling at the Solona North West prospect, located 2.1 km to the northwest of Solona Main. Significant drill intersections from the program included 6m at 5.29g/t Au and was successful in confirming the presence of bedrock gold mineralization associated with the extensive quartz veining. A 5 hole RC program was completed in 2016 returned a best result of 4m at 2.75g/t gold (including 1m at 8.48g/t gold) providing encouragement for further follow-up drilling.
