Canada-based gold producer B2Gold Corp. is pleased to announce positive drill results from its Fekola project and Fekola regional targets in Mali, West Africa.
New drill results in the upper portion of the Fekola North Extension (formerly Kiwi zone) indicate it is part of the Fekola zone and has significantly extended mineralisation to depth. Furthermore, new drill results above the deeper portion of the Fekola North Extension (formerly Fekola Deeps) have intersected wide zones of good-grade mineralisation, closer to the surface, and up to 600 m north of the Fekola resource pit boundary.
These results, combined with the deeper, mineralised intercepts in the upper portion of the Fekola North Extension area indicate that these zones are one contiguous mineralised zone that could dramatically increase the extent of Fekola mineralisation. In addition, the mineralisation remains open to the north beyond the new drill results.
Additionally, drill results from the infill-drilling programme, within the Fekola resource pit boundary, continue to convert inferred resources to indicated, confirming the potential addition of 900 000 oz of gold.
