Golden Rim Identifies New Gold Targets at Kada


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 provide assay results for the final 44 air core (AC) drill holes (totalling 2,197m) from exploration drilling which has identified new targets at its flagship Kada Gold Project (Kada) in Guinea.


Air core (AC) drilling returned numerous anomalous gold results, at both the Sadan and Massan South prospects, including 22m @ 0.9 g/t gold.

3,500m of diamond drilling (DD) at Bereko and Massan prospects is progressing well; 2,060m drilled to date.

Golden Rim is developing a pipeline of prospects to drive continued growth of the Kada Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE).

Updated Massan MRE and maiden Bereko MRE on track for delivery in 2023.

Golden Rim�s Managing Director, Tim Strong, commented:

“Discovering gold at the Sadan prospect confirms our view that Kada still has a significant amount of gold ounces to uncover. We feel we have only scratched the surface when it comes to Kada, with 930,000 ounces at Massan across a 1km strike, and another very attractive target in Bereko, 9km to the north. We are now focussed on filling in the gaps across Kadaâ€?s 15km long bedrock gold corridor, and we are confident this will uncover further zones of mineralisation and underpin Resource growth.

“Recent RC results at Sounkou[1] (17m @ 1.3 g/t) and now promising aircore results at Sadan and Massan South are proof that Kada is a substantial gold deposit, and we look forward to using these new results to drive targeted exploration forward.”

Kada Exploration Drilling

Golden Rim�s 3,000m AC drilling program targeting new discoveries is now complete, while its 3,500m DD program testing open mineralisation and providing structural information commenced in March 2023 is ongoing.

In addition, Golden Rim recently completed a 10,000m RC drilling program at Kada which comprised exploration drilling at the Bereko Prospect and north of the MRE area within the Massan Prospect, as well as some resource extension and infill drilling around the margins of the MRE.

AC drill hole collar details are provided in Table 1 and the hole locations are depicted in Figure 1. All significant new gold intersections are presented in Table 2.

Air core Drilling

Golden Rim completed a 3,000m AC drilling program in March to explore the newly discovered Nounkoun target identified in field mapping (Figure 1), as well as prospective geophysical anomalies within Massan and Bereko. A total of 64 holes for 2922m were drilled, as follows:

19 holes for 1,009m at Bereko

8 holes for 414m at Massan

7 holes for 327m at Massan South

22 holes for 1,047m at Sadan

8 holes for 125m at Bamfele.

Assays were received for 12 holes and announced on 24 April 2023. Results for a further 44 holes across all prospects have now been received, with results for the remaining eight holes pending. Multiple holes contain anomalous gold values, highlights include:

o   SDAC013:

22m @ 0.9 g/t gold from 28m

o   SDAC009:

12m @ 0.5 g/t gold from 4m

4m @ 1.6 g/t gold from 44m

o   SDAC010:

4m @ 1.0 g/t gold from 5m

10m @ 0.3 g/t gold from 39m

o   MSAC012:

4m @ 1.2 g/t gold from 8m

Drilling consistently intersected a series of interbedded strongly weathered, intensely oxidised sedimentary rocks, mostly siltstone and greywacke with minor shales. Mineralisation is encountered in all rock types.

These encouraging new results, coupled with the recent discovery at the Sounkou prospect 13km southwest of the MRE area at Massan, present additional prospective target areas for follow-up as Golden Rim continues to expand its gold inventory at Kada. The Company is on track to deliver a MRE update later in 2023.

Mineralised zones will be re-assayed using 1m intervals to further define the mineralisation.    

Current Progress & Next Steps

RC drilling at Bereko and Massan is now complete, with assays pending for the final 14 holes (1,487m) at Massan. Results for these holes, and the final trenches at Massan, are expected during May.

The final eight AC drillhole results are expected in May, and diamond drilling at Massan and Bereko will continue until completion; expected to be late May. Result will then be analysed over the coming wet season in preparation for an MRE upgrade at Massan and a maiden MRE at Bereko.

This announcement was authorised for release by the Board of Golden Rim Resources Ltd.


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 Estimate of 25.5Mt at 1.1g/t gold for 930Koz[2], the majority of which is shallow oxide-transitional gold mineralisation. Golden Rim is focussed on growing the Mineral Resource Estimate. Most of the 200km2 project area remains under explored and there is considerable upside for the discovery of additional oxide gold mineralisation.

The Company has outlined an Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource of 50Mt at 1.3g/t gold for 2Moz[3] at the Kouri Gold Project, located in north-east Burkina Faso, and it also holds the Paguanta Copper and Silver-Lead-Zinc Project in northern Chile  which has 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[4] at the Patricia Prospect, which remains open. The Company is seeking to divest these projects to focus on Kada.

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.
