Akobo Minerals resumes core drilling in Segele to follow up recent high-grade results
Akobo Minerals, a Norway-based gold exploration company with operations in
Ethiopia, has resumed drilling after 3 months of stop in activity due to the COVID-19 situation.
Our crew has again been mobilized for the resumption of drilling in Segele, and the first hole has already
been drilled. Visible gold is occurring through 3.5m in the core, continuing the good trend from the first
ten holes, that showed some good and even incredible intercepts, e.g. 339 g/t Au over 20.95m (hole
SEDD03), and 12 g/t Au over 14,7m (hole SEDD05). The results have been confirmed by the
internationally recognized analytical company ALS.
The holes were drilled 25 meters apart, testing lateral and depth extensions. The analysis of about 30
percent of the total length of cores from the first ten holes gives us confidence in the continued program.
The Segele zone was recognized with positive results in large parts of the drilled holes, and thus remains
open in all directions. The Segele zone is the focus of this campaign where we expect to drill up to 2.000
meters within the next two months. By completion, we expect to have an updated CPR (Competent
Person’s Report), with preliminary resource estimates for the Segele gold deposit.
