TORONTO, April 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — African Gold Group, Inc. (TSX-V: AGG) (“AGG” or the “Company”) is pleased to report new drill results from the Company’s Kobada Gold Project located in southern Mali, including additional high-grade intersections in the northern extension of the main shear zone. The Kobada Gold Project is fully licensed and is progressing towards completion of the definitive feasibility study in Q2 2020 (the “DFS”).
Highlights Include (Table 1):Drilling results returned intersections of broad and continuous mineralization progressing to new depths within a largely untested area of the Kobada concessionThe Company expects to release an updated mineral resource statement in the coming weeksDrill hole KB19_P2_33 returned 2.14g/t Au over 16.0 meters (m) including 30.80g/t over 1.0mDrill hole KB19_P2_34 returned 2.12g/t Au over 3.0m and 1.88g/t Au over 1.0mDrill hole KB19_P2_35 returned 2.0g/t Au over 2.30m and 3.79g/t Au over 1.1mDrill hole KB19_P2_36 returned 2.49g/t Au over 4.03 m including 2.89g/t over 3.39mDrill hole KB19_P2_38 returned 3.26g/t Au over 2.20m“We still encounter high-grade mineralization moving northwards beyond the planned open pit along strike and down dip, proving the yet open-ended extension northwards and along dip beyond the saprolite zone,” says Dr. Andreas Rompel, Vice President Exploration of the Company. “Furthermore, we are testing the width of the Kobada Shear and are happy to see that it extends further westwards than anticipated in parts.”The Kobada Gold Project is a fully licensed and permitted advanced development project located in the prolific Birimian Greenstone belt in Southern Mali. The Company is working towards delivering the DFS in Q2 2020 as a part of the final process before commencement of construction. Since 2019, the Company has completed a drilling campaign totaling 11,428 m withing the Kobada Gold Project concession area.To date, the Company has not discovered the northern, or the southern end of mineralization along the Kobada Shear. Furthermore, AGG intends to step away from the Kobada Shear to test the neighboring and parallel-striking Gosso Shear, which has been exposed by shallow artisanal mining:The high-grade intersects reported in this press release are part of the Section Lines 14 and 15 (Figure 1 and 2).Figures 1 and 2 show that the drill holes are stepping out of the existing main shear zone testing the width of the mineralized zone and progressing further northwards.The Company is targeting only oxides that extend to an average depth of 150m but tests the lower limit of the saprolite for pit-planning purposes.Following on from the previously reported drill holes of the Phase 2 drilling program, the current batch of assay results received from SGS laboratory in Bamako continue to demonstrate the large extent of the mineralization along strike and down-dip along the highly prolific and auriferous Kobada shear zone. Results from the Phase 2 drilling program will be incorporated into an updated mineral resource statement targeted to be released within the next few weeks.Figure 1 accompanying this announcement is available at
