West Africa exploration
Chesser has had recent success in its exploration for ‘gold elephants’ with high-grade gold found at its flagship Diamba Sud Project in Senegal, West Africa.
The project is around 2 kilometres west of the Senegal Mali Shear Zone (SMSZ), which hosts numerous multi-million-ounce gold deposits including B2Gold Corp’s (TSE:BTO)(NYSEAMERICAN:BTG) 7.6 million ounce Fekola Mine, Barrick Gold Corp’s (NYSE:GOLD) 18 million ounce Loulo-Gounkoto complex and AngloGold Ashanti Limited (NYSE:AU) and Iamgold Corp’s (NYSE:IAG) Sadiola and Yatela mines.
Diamond drilling in Area A confirmed high-grade gold in a steeply dipping feeder structure by returning 21 metres at 2.29 g/t from 156 metres including 2.5 metres at 6.07 g/t, and 16 metres at 8.51 g/t including 10 metres at 13.11 g/t gold.
