(MENAFN - ProactiveInvestors - Australia) West African Resources (ASX: WAF) has extended the shallow copper-gold mineralisation at its Sartenga Prospect in Burkina Faso through its latest drilling.
Aircore drilling has confirmed the mineralisation now extends more than 500 metres in width on Section 5 while a number of holes have ended in transitional mineralisation indicating the deeper drilling may deliver further zones of parallel primary mineralisation.
Significant results include a hole with assay of 63 metres at 0.4 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 0.2% copper and 65g/t molybdenum from surface ending in 3 metres at 1.4g/t gold, 0.5% copper and 11g/t molybdenum.
In Section 8, which was also subject to drilling, mineralisation has been intersected over 350 metre width.
Results included a 25 metre intercept at 0.4 g/t gold and 0.4% copper from 36 metres including 5 metres at 1.1 g/t gold and 0.5% copper from 40 metres ending in mineralisation.
Further aircore assays are pending while results from diamond drilling are also expected shortly.
