A modest maiden drilling (3,200m) and trenching program on the Didievi Project in Central Côte d'Ivoire has confirmed and extended known mineralisation at Blaffo Gueto and made a number of potential high impact new discoveries with shallow high grade intercepts.
Drilling has confirmed the presence of a large gold system over an area of at least 1.5km x 1km open in all directions

At Blaffo Gueto Main, diamond and reverse circulation drilling has confirmed geometry, grade and continuity and proved the system is open along strike and at depth.
At BG South West, diamond drilling has discovered a new high-grade structure west of the previous high-grade zone (8m at 9.97g/t gold).
At BG Central, scout reverse circulation drilling of a new structural/geophysical target has discovered a new high grade structure 200m east of the BG Main Zone (11m at 11.09g/t gold).
At BG East, reverse circulation drilling has confirmed a significant corridor of anomalous mineralised structures 500m east of BG Main, and 200m east of BG Central (10m at 1.31g/t gold).
All results for the reconnaissance regional program including drilling at Pranoi, trenching and soil sampling have yet to be received and will be announced when available.
