Syama Shear Zone, South Mali. Permit is located in the Sikasso region of south Mali, approximately 400 km by road from Bamako. The area is generally accessible by a sealed highway to the regional town of Sikasso, then via Kadiola to the Syama Gold Mine. The southern boundary of the permit is contiguous with the Resolute Mining Syama mining lease. The Syama mill is situated about 15 km to the south.
Golokasso is broadly situated on the northern extension of the Syama Gold Belt. Multiple gold deposits and gold prospects occur along the Syama Belt, including the world class Syama Mine (+8 Moz), A21 deposits (+1 Moz) and Tabakoroni (1 Moz). Gold mineralisation is hosted predominately in mafic lithologies in the hanging wall of the regionally extensive Syama Shear Zone.
The Golokasso permit straddles the northern portion of the Syama Shear Zone and an interpreted north-trending structural splay of that mineralised trend. Approximately 10 km of prospective structure occurs within the permit area.
