Reunion Gold hits shallow, broad gold zones from drilling at Oko West

Canada-based Reunion Gold Corporation (TSX-V: RGD) has announced that drilling at its Oko West Project in Guyana has intersected shallow, thick gold intercepts.

The 11,000m single diamond drill program, which began on 17th June 2021, is designed to test the vertical and lateral continuity of trench gold anomalies previously identified over a 3km long soil gold anomaly.

Key results include:

  • 43.5m @ 2.92 g/t Au from surface
  • 61.0m @ 2.54 g/t Au from surface
  • 17.5m @ 2.90 g/t Au from 58.5m

The company has since recruited an RC drill rig for the campaign, which is being utilised for infill and step-out exploration.

This second Oko West drilling program has seen 22 diamond drill holes completed for a total of 1,809m, along with eight RC holes completed for 559m. Assay results for 19 of the diamond drill holes have so far been received.

Oko West

Reunion Gold’s Oko West Project is located in northwest Guyana, immediately south of G2 Goldfields’ “Oko”. Reunion has undertaken drilling and trenching programs that confirmed the presence of gold mineralisation in shear zones. This coincided with anomalies of gold-in-soil and geological structures discovered from aerial geophysical surveys.

Oko West belongs to a group of permits within the Cuyuni River Basin covering approximately 11,900 acres. Reunion holds an option to acquire a 100% ownership interest.

“We are pleased with the drilling results obtained so far, confirming down-dip and lateral continuity of gold mineralization”

Management comments

Reunion Gold Corporation interim CEO Carlos Bertoni said: “We are pleased with the drilling results obtained so far, confirming down-dip and lateral continuity of gold mineralization previously discovered in trenches and from the first drilling program completed in January 2021. We have intersected gold mineralization in all exploration blocks, including very encouraging high-grade drill results obtained from Block 4. Gold mineralization intersected so far remains open at depth and along strike. We continue to refine the program as we progress, and we are looking forward to reporting additional results in due course.”
