SRK Consulting Begins Work on Mineral Resource Estimate for Segele Gold Target
Following the recent exciting gold assay results, Akobo Minerals AB is pleased to announce that SRK Consulting (Australasia) Pty Ltd has begun their work on the maiden mineral resource estimate for the Segele gold target. SRK is a world leading specialist within exploration and mining consultancy and has experience from working on over 20,000 projects worldwide out of their 45 global offices.
The maiden mineral resource estimate is a first step towards reaching Akobo Minerals goal of defining 1,5 million to 2 million ounces gold.
CEO of Akobo Minerals Jørgen Evjen has this to say;
“Another milestone for the company, being able to define a maiden resource just after some thousand meters of drilling. This is unusual and says a lot about the Segele deposit. Even though this will be only our first indication of grade and tonnage at Segele, the main purpose of this estimate is to get our operations and quality systems acknowledged by an industry player as SRK. This will be the first of many updates going forward as we continue exploring the Segele deposit”
Principal Consultant at SRK, Michael Lowry (Resource Evaluation Specialist) said:
“SRK are excited to be working on the maiden Mineral Resource Estimate for the Segele Gold deposit. We look forward to partnering with Akobo Minerals and to join them in their journey to uncover the full potential of the region.”
The completion of this work with SRK will be an important milestone demonstrating the company’s ability to perform JORC compliant resource definition in addition to the discovery of new deposits. Akobo Minerals has now added additional world-class resource definition capacity which will be used at Segele, Joru and other targets to reach the corporate objectives.
