    Oklo identifies two further growth opportunities at Dandoko

    Oklo Resources Limited (ASX: OKU) announced that further significant results identified from shallow reconnaissance AC drilling of regional targets at its flagship Dandoko Project in west Mali, Africa have confirmed two further growth opportunities in close proximity to Seko along the 15km Dandoko gold corridor.

    Significant intersections included 12m at 2.41g/t gold from surface (including 3m at 6.39g/t gold from 6m and 9m at 0.41g/t gold from 39m) from Selingouma North; 6m at 1.23g/t gold from 18m, 4m at 1.21g/t gold from 76m (including 1m at 3.41g/t gold) from Koko East; and 3m at 1.04g/t gold from 24m, 15m at 0.53g/t gold from 33m, 6m at 0.55g/t gold from 39m and 6m at 0.51g/t gold from 63m from Koko North East and South.

    OKU said that reconnaissance AC drilling is ongoing, testing additional targets identified through a combination of previous auger geochemical drilling, induced polarisation (IP) geophysical surveys, and geological mapping. The company said that regional programs are also commencing on the Kandiole, Kouroufing, Sari, and Kossaya projects.

    2021 drilling campaign at Dandoko

    The company had recently commenced its 2021 drilling campaign within its flagship Dandoko project. This included the resource definition drilling program at Seko, as well as reconnaissance AC drilling program testing additional targets along the 15km Dandoko gold corridor in close proximity to Seko.

    OKU said that these targets were identified through a combination of previous auger geochemical drilling, IP geophysical surveys, and geological mapping.

    Resource definition drilling completed

    The company reported that the resource definition drilling program at Seko was completed with all remaining samples dispatched to the laboratory for analysis. OKU said that upon receipt, the assay results will be incorporated into the maiden Mineral Resource estimate, which remains on track for delivery during March.

    AC drilling at Dandoko

    OKU said that assay results were received from 154 reconnaissance AC holes to an average depth of 52m. The company said that the results received to date have confirmed broad zones of gold mineralisation at the Selingouma North and Koko areas for follow-up testing.

    Selingouma North

    Noteworthy drill intersections in Selingouma North included 12m at 2.41g/t gold from surface (including 3m at 6.39g/t gold from 6m and 9m at 0.41g/t gold from 39m) with the hole ending in mineralisation and 3m at 1.09g/t gold from 21m on the same drill line; and 12m at 1.00g/t gold from 30m on the next line drilled 200m to the south.

    Koko East

    Significant hits from Koko East included 6m at 1.23g/t gold from 18m, 4m at 1.21g/t gold from 76m (including 1m at 3.41g/t gold).

    Koko – NE and South

    Important intersections from Koko – NE and South included 3m at 1.04g/t gold from 24m, 15m at 0.53g/t gold from 33m, 6m at 0.55g/t gold from 39m, and 6m at 0.51g/t gold from 63m.

    Summary of significant intersections is as shown below.

    The company announced that reconnaissance AC drilling is ongoing, testing additional targets in close proximity to Seko. OKU said that regional programs are also commencing on the Kandiole, Kouroufing, Sari, and Kossaya projects.

    Management comments

    Oklo’s Managing Director, Simon Taylor said: “The latest results from shallow reconnaissance AC drilling on targets along the 15km Dandoko gold corridor continue to confirm the potential for further growth opportunities in close proximity to Seko. These new results complement our pipeline of maturing satellite opportunities which will be further assessed in the near-term as part of our resource expansion drilling program.”
