Golden Rim commences 10,000m RC Drilling program at Kada Oxide Gold Project


West African gold explorer, Golden Rim Resources Ltd (ASX: GMR; Golden Rim or Company – https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/golden-rim-resources-ltd/) is pleased to announce it has commenced a 10,000m reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at its flagship Kada Gold Project (Kada) in Guinea.


Extensive drill program expected to increase the gold inventory in the Mineral Resource area as well as targeting other prospects along the Kada Gold Corridor.

Follow-up drilling will be conducted at the Bereko prospect, where initial exploration drilling discovered multiple high-grade zones of mineralisation, including previously reported shallow oxide intersections of 11m @ 6.3g/t gold and 10m @ 5.6g/t gold.

Drilling will target potential resource extension at the Massan prospect, where Golden Rim has discovered zones of wide gold mineralisation up to 400m outside the maiden Inferred Mineral Resource with 930,000oz[1] of contained gold.

3,500m of diamond drilling (DD) is scheduled to commence in January 2023.

First results from the RC drilling program are expected late January 2023.

Following a comprehensive review of data from previous field campaigns, a resource expansion and discovery drilling campaign along the 15km Kada Gold Corridor has been planned, which includes both RC and diamond drilling programs.

The RC drilling program includes follow-up exploration holes at the Bereko prospect after initial RC exploration drillholes intersected multiple zones of mineralisation (including 11m @ 6.3g/t gold and 10m @ 5.6g/t gold) (Figure 2), as well as potential resource extensions around the open mineralisation at the margins of the maiden Mineral Resource at the Massan prospect (Figure 3). Drilling will also test numerous new exploration targets identified by recent gradient-array Induced Polarisation (IP) and Pole-Dipole IP geophysical surveys along the Kada Gold corridor.

Diamond drilling is expected to commence in January 2023, with 3,500m planned across both the Massan and Bereko prospects. At Bereko, diamond drilling will focus on confirming the width, grade and extensions of the highly significant gold mineralisation discovered in the initial RC drilling program and providing structural information needed for resource estimation. Diamond drilling at Massan will test numerous zones of open mineralisation at depth (including below 29m @ 8.5 g/t gold in previous hole, KRC025), as well as providing further confidence to progress the mineral resource towards an Indicated classification.

Golden Rim�s Chief Executive Officer, Tim Strong, said:

“On the back of our recent successful capital raising, we are extremely excited to commence this next phase of exploration at our flagship Kada project in Guinea to test for additional ounces at both the Massan resource area and the newly discovered Bereko prospect. This next phase of drilling aims to increase the inventory of gold ounces across the property.

“If successful, we expect this 10,000m drill program will confirm and expand the Mineral Resource at Massan, prepare us for a maiden Mineral Resource at Bereko, and discover additional areas for exploration within the central portion of the mineralised belt.

“As we receive results during the coming field season, I am confident that Kada will be firmly on the radar of the international community as a major new gold discovery in West Africa.â€?â€?

Golden Rim Resources Limited is an ASX listed exploration company with a portfolio of advanced minerals projects in Guinea and Burkina Faso, West Africa and in Chile, South America.

The Company�s flagship project is the advanced Kada Gold Project in eastern Guinea. Guinea remains one of the most under-explored countries in West Africa. Golden Rim has outlined a maiden Inferred Mineral Resource of 25.5Mt at 1.1g/t gold for 930Koz[1], the majority of which is shallow oxide-transitional gold mineralisation. Golden Rim is focussed on growing the Mineral Resource. Most of the 200km2 project area remains poorly explored and there is considerable upside for the discovery of additional oxide gold mineralisation.

The Company discovered and has outlined an Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource of 50Mt at 1.3g/t gold for 2Moz[2] at the Kouri Gold Project, located in north-east Burkina Faso. Kouri covers 325km2 of highly prospective Birimian greenstones. Exploration has successfully located several high-grade gold shoots. Golden Rim recently signed an agreement with BAOR SARL to sell Kouri.

In northern Chile, Golden Rim has the Paguanta Copper and Silver-Lead-Zinc Project. Historically a silver mine, the Company has outlined a Measured, Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource of 2.4Mt at 88g/t silver, 5.0% zinc and 1.4% lead for 6.8Moz silver, 265Mlb zinc and 74Mlb lead[3] at the Patricia Prospect. The Mineral Resource remains open.

At the adjacent Loreto Copper Project in Chile, Golden Rim has signed an Option and Joint Venture agreement with Teck Chile whereby Teck Chile can acquire up to a 75% interest in the project.
