Golden Rim makes progress in Burkina Faso

Drilling at West African gold developer Golden Rim Resources’ Kouri project in Burkina Faso is making steady progress.

Golden Rim Resources recently commenced a 17 000m Reverse Circulation (RC) and 4 000m diamonds drilling programme at the Kouri project in Burkina Faso.

The company uses Capital Drilling’s multi-purpose rig for the RC drilling. The RC portion of the drilling programme is conducted first, while the diamond drilling will only get underway during the rainy season from July to August.

According to the company RC drilling commenced in the river channel area of the Footwall Shear, following up a recently obtained high-grade drill intercept of 4m at 44.7 grams per tonne of gold (g/t Au). Four holes have been completed at the Footwall Shear and the rig is now drilling infill holes in an area of higher-grade gold mineralisation situated in the southern portion of the Mineral Resource.

First assays are expected to be returned from the laboratory in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, in about two to three weeks.
