Azumah Resources has confirmed the discovery of a major mineralised system at the Bepkong deposit at the Wa Gold Project in Ghana.

The interception of the high-grade East Lode mineralisation strengthens the case for a possible underground mining operation.

Azumah Resources Managing Director Stephen Stone said intersecting 99.5 metres at 2.16 grams per tonne from 316m, which was 75m below the recent intercept, was another great result. 

“Importantly, the system contains several thick, high-grade ore shoots that could support declining down from the bottom of the planned open-pit and mining this mineralisation from underground. 

“Subject to a full evaluation, this could completely transform the proposed, plus-100,000 ounce per year Wa Gold Project open pit mining operation. 

“The Azumah-Ibaera joint venture will now be extending and accelerating the drill program at Bepkong so we can better understand the geometry and extent of the system and to enable us to rapidly move to a maiden resource estimate.” 

Azumah Resources reported the results from the drilling will be available in the coming weeks.
