The company took a total of two rock chip samples as part of the initial work program. Both came back positive. Sample NG005, taken from the primary quartz vein at 46 metres below surface in an artisanal shaft, returned a value of 2,950 g/t gold. Sample NG006 was collected from the artisanal dumps of the sheared intrusive which returned a value of 23.9 g/t gold.
Additional samples were taken on a subsequent site visit, and these samples also returned high grade mineralization. Sample NG007, taken from material extracted from an artisanal shaft at a depth of approximately 60 metres, returned a value of 403 g/t gold. NG008, taken from another shaft 10-12 metres away from NG007, returned a value of 49.8 g/t gold.
These results indicate the presence of high-grade gold occurring within the primary quartz vein and the sheared intrusive envelope. A total of 11 rock samples were obtained and tested on these initial site visits. See table below for complete assay results.
