Tietto maintains upwards trajectory on gold deposits in Africa
Tietto Minerals has racked and stacked another notable round of results from its Abujar gold project in Côte d’Ivoire, Africa, with drill holes punching underneath the existing mineral resource at the Abujar‐Pischon‐Golikro, or “APG” deposit, returning 6 metres grading 4.55 grams per tonne from 229m down hole that includes 1m grading 24.38g/t gold.
The Perth based company said that impressive drilling results have now extended the APG deposit to just shy of one kilometre outside of the existing modelled resource.
Another solid result released today was a 6m intersection grading 2.67g/t gold from 83m.
Tietto is on track to deliver an updated global mineral resource sometime during quarter three this year. With a swag of solid drilling numbers under its belt now since the existing 2.2m ounce resource was penned, the market will no doubt be watching closely to see just how big this already very large gold resource can get.
Tietto Managing Director, Dr Caigen Wang, said: “The latest round of diamond drilling results has successfully extended gold mineralisation along strike and down dip at the APG deposit. We have confirmed gold mineralisation over a 900m strike length that is exclusive of the current resource model which has joined into a contiguous 3,500m zone, open to the north and south.”
APG is still open below an impressive 280m in depth and the company said that more drilling will be planned to define the seemingly endless extents of the deposit.
Tietto recently revealed some impressive metallurgical results from its multi-deposit Abujar gold project too, with recoveries ranging from 96 per cent at a grind size of 180 µm up to 98 per cent at a grind size of 106 µm for fresh ore.
