Major gold intersection at Seko for Oklo Resources

Oklo Resources gold intersection Seko

Oklo Resources (ASX: OKU) has significant news regarding a gold intersect on its deeper diamond drilling campaign at the Seko prospect within the Dandoko Project.

Key Highlights:

  • Assays results received from RC pre-collar (0 – 150.6m) to stratigraphic diamond hole DDSEK17-005 (DDH5).
  • Significant intersections include:
    • 65.6m at 2.20g/t gold from 85m to end of pre-collar including:
      • 29m at 3.07g/t gold from 86m including:
        • 6m at 11.08g/t gold from 103m with
        • 1m at 20.59g/t gold from 104m; and
      • 20.6m at 2.48g/t gold from 130m to end of pre-collar including:
        • 8m at 5.38g/t gold from 130m.
  • Diamond core from 150.6m – 220.8m (end of hole) is awaiting assay.
  • The first pass stratigraphic diamond drilling (DD) program was completed at four of the Seko gold trends primarily testing for structure and geology as well as exploring for depth extensions to the previously reported significant oxide gold mineralisation intersected in shallow aircore (AC) drilling.
  • All assay results from the DD program (6 holes) and the remaining 93 AC holes are outstanding and will be reported as they come to hand.

Oklo’s Dandoko Project and adjoining Moussala Project are located within the Kenieba Inlier of western Mali and lie within 30km to the east of B2Gold’s 5.15Moz Fekola Project and 50km to the south-southeast of Randgold’s 12.5Moz Loulo Mine.

Seko diamond drilling program

The first pass stratigraphic DD program at Seko was designed to further Oklo’s understanding of the underlying geology and structure and test for depth extensions to the previously reported significant shallow oxide gold mineralisation.

The recently completed program, comprising 6 holes for 961m, tested four separate anomalies at Seko (Anomalies 1, 2, 3 and 5, Figure 3) . All holes were angled at -55° and achieved a maximum downhole depth of 220.8m (vertical depth ~180m).

All holes intersected significant alteration zones in fresh rock over wide intervals variously characterised by silicification and carbonation (ankerite), sulphide and quartz mineralisation.

This announcement reports assay results received from the RC pre-collar (0 – 150.6m) to diamond hole DDSEK17-005 (DDH5), which was drilled to a total depth of 220.8m (Figure 2) as a twin hole to DDSEK17-003 which was abandoned at 173m.

The significant results are summarised in Table 1.
