Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. has provided an update on its exploration program at the Séguéla gold project located in Côte d’Ivoire. Sunbird´s new resource estimation is in addition to Séguéla’s current mineral reserves of 12.1 million t averaging 2.80 g/t Au containing 1.09 million oz.

Paul Weedon, Senior Vice President of Exploration at Fortuna, commented:

“Drilling at Séguéla has continued to highlight the exploration potential of the project including the definition of a maiden indicated mineral resource and a substantial increase in the inferred mineral resource at the Sunbird Deposit. Successful regional exploration work has identified two new prospects, at Barana and Badior, and additional high-grade results from Kestrel”.

“Ongoing extension drilling at Sunbird continues to expand the mineralised footprint, extending the southern high-grade shoot a further 75 m along strike with drill hole SGDD109 intersecting 10.2 g/t gold over a true width of 9.1 m and drill hole SGDD110 intersecting 10.2 g/t gold over a true width of 7.0 m. Additionally, drilling has also confirmed the continuity of mineralisation between the central and southern high-grade shoots, with intersections such as drill hole SGDD106 intersecting 6.5 g/t gold over a true width of 15.4 m”.

“Regional exploration drilling has advanced two new discoveries, Barana and Badior, with results including 11.5 g/t gold over a true width of 15.4 m from drill hole SGRC1521 at Badior. Furthermore, continued exploration at the previously identified Kestrel prospect has extended mineralisation an additional 200 m along strike with highlights including 20.3 g/t gold over a true width of 3.5 m from drill hole SGRC1537”.
