Oklo Resources reports ‘bonanza’ grades up to 87.50g/t at Dandoko, Mali

Oklo Resources (ASX:OKU) has announced further ‘high-grade’ intercepts at the Disse deposit within its 100%-owned Dandoko Project in West Mali.

The results, generated from 10 RC and 3 diamond drill holes within the central zone at Disse, include individual grades of up to 87.50g/t, with significant hits including:

  • Hole RCDS21-372:
    • 5m @ 19.08g/t Au from 109m; including
      • 2m @ 47.04g/t Au from 112m
      • 1m @ 87.50g/t Au from 113m
  • Hole RCDS21-373:
    • 2m @ 7.02g/t Au from 63m
  • Hole RCDS21-376:
    • 5m @ 1.65g/t Au from 107m; including
      • 1m @ 6.75g/t Au from 111m
  • Hole RDDS22-125:
    • 6m @ 3.76g/t Au from 221m; including
      • 3m @ 6.36g/t Au from 224m

The company notes that 6 additional RC holes at Disse North discovered a potential parallel ‘high-grade’ structure, with results including:

  • Hole RCDS21-380: 1m @ 23.00g/t Au from 40m;
    • including 1m @ 3.88g/t Au from 1m

Speaking on the update, Oklo Resources Managing Director Simon Taylor said “These excellent results further confirm Disse as an emerging high-grade target with both open cut and underground potential. The latest high-grade gold result of 5m at 19.08g/t is from the central part of the host structure, which remains open at depth and correlates well with the high-grade gold intersected in the adjacent drill sections, including 6m at 12.56g/t gold and 3m at 19.94g/t gold.

These excellent results further confirm Disse as an emerging high-grade target with both open cut and underground potential”

The addition of high-grade fresh rock will complement the largely shallow oxide resource at Seko. The current resource expansion drilling program at Seko is now complete with final results expected imminently.”

These intercepts add further support for potential high-grade shoot development plunging to the south-east of Disse, which will require drill testing to ascertain either open cut or underground potential.

Since the announcement of Dandoko’s maiden 668,500oz Mineral Resource Estimate in March 2021, Oklo has remained focused on resource growth opportunities within Seko, other key targets along the Dandoko gold corridor, and within additional connecting projects.

Dandoko is located approximately 30km east of B2Gold’s 7.1Moz Fekola Project within the Kenieba Inlier of West Mali, and encompasses the Seko, Koko, Disse and Diabarou deposits.

With resource expansion drilling at Disse now complete, and with the final assay results expected during March, Oklo reports that it will move forward with drill planning for resource growth along with follow-up work on new discoveries at Sari and Kandiole.
