Competent Person’s Report
The Akobo gold project is located in southwestern Ethiopia, south of the Akobo River, roughly 720 km SW from the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. The project area currently covers 182 km2 of highly prospective geology within to the Arabian-Nubian Shield. The area is considered as lowland by Ethiopian standards, the elevation varies between 600 and 800 meter above sea level and is made up of a gently rolling savanna landscape.
Between 2010 and 2017 more than 4000 soil samples have been collected and analyzed, 7.5 line kilometers of trenching has been completed and over 3000m of reverse circulation drilling has been performed. This has led to the successful identification of two main targets Segele and Joru. Additionally, numerous smaller targets have been identified based on soil-sampling, only two of these smaller targets have been investigated by trenching and drilling. The two main targets exhibit remarkable differences in style of mineralization, inherent variability grades and size.
