Predictive Discovery Ltd. has provided an update on near-resource and regional exploration at the Bankan Gold Project in Guinea. RC drilling is underway at near-resource targets and drilling is also to commence at the regional Argo targets at completion of IP surveys.


  • Induced polarisation surveys previously identified as the most effective geophysical technique to highlight the structural controls and mineralisation at NE Bankan (NEB).
  • Gradient array induced polarisation (GAIP) surveys at the Argo targets nearing completion.
  • Several follow-up lines of 3D pole-dipole induced polarisation (“P-DIP”) surveys planned for the AG1, AG2 and AG4 targets.
  • Reverse circulation (“RC”) drilling at Argo to commence shortly at the highest priority targets.
  • RC drilling has commenced at near-resource target 800 W.
  • Near-resource RC drilling will also target Gbenbeden (small, northern resource pit shell at NEB) and the NEB North target.

PDI Managing Director, Andrew Pardey, said: “The Bankan Gold Project has significant exploration upside, both near the existing NEB and BC deposits, and regionally along the 35km gold structure of the Siguiri Basin margin. We are making good progress with our exploration programme at the regional Argo targets. IP surveys are nearing completion, which will assist us to refine the targets identified from previous geophysics surveys and auger drilling. We are excited to commence RC drilling at these highly prospective targets in the near future. In the meantime, we have commenced RC drilling at 800 W, which has numerous significant intercepts from aircore drilling, just north-west of the main NEB deposit. Plans are also in place to drill other near-resource targets, with the aim of discovering economic gold mineralisation that can contribute to a future operation at Bankan. We look forward to reporting exploration drilling results, as we seek to unlock the full potential of the Bankan permits.”
