Robex Resources Inc. is pleased to announce a discovery on the property in Guinea following the merger with Sycamore Mining.
Following acquisition of the 326km² Kiniero Gold Project in January 2020 by Sycamore Mining, a Project-wide interpretation of the available data to generate and identify exploration target areas was undertaken. The aim of this target generation campaign was to identify new exploration targets that had not yet previously been drilled.
A strong gold-in-soil geochemical anomaly was identified in the south of the Project, which was supported by a clear anomalous magnetic signature in historical airborne geophysics. On 12 March 2020, Sycamore Mining commenced drilling at the target, with the third drillhole of the campaign (RC20-003) being the discovery hole, returning 11m at 1.05g/t (from 29m) and 20m at 1.01g/t (from 55m).
Largest contiguous zones
The discovery was named Sabali South which has a proximal location to the new proposed 3Mtpa plant (~1.5km), easily accessible and topographically gently undulating. Subsequent extensive exploration has confirmed that the Sabali South deposit forms a part of a much larger shear mineralised corridor, termed the Sabali-Mansounia Corridor.
The cumulative 6km strike length of the Sabali-Mansounia Corridor has been under-explored, which is currently largely open along strike and at depth. This discovery represents the single largest discovery within the 326km² Kiniero Gold Project since the discovery of the Jean and Gobelé deposit in the 1950s.
More importantly, the Sabali-Mansounia Corridor represents one of the largest contiguous zones of mineralisation within the Southern Siguiri Basin. More than 20 years on since the original development of the historic Kiniero Gold Mine, the discovery and evolved understanding of the broader Kiniero Gold District underlines the level of prospectivity, and under-explored targets, within this sector of the Siguiri Basin in Guinea.
Since the commencement of this maiden drilling campaign at Sabali South, the exploration and geological interpretation of the deposit has been continuous, with drilling currently active in parallel with advanced resource modelling.
