New discovery Canadian miner Columbus Gold has reported a high-grade gold discovery at the Maripa gold project in French Guiana. The business says it has an option to acquire up to a 70% interest in Maripa.

“Field work in the Filon Dron and Changement areas in the last few months has already uncovered two new gold mineralised structures with high-grade potential. The initial work confirms that the local geo-logical setting is highly prospective and underexplored,” Rock Lefrançois, the president and chief executive of Columbus Gold, was quoted in a statement.

In July 2018, Columbus Gold inked an agreement with IAMGOLD Corporation to take over up to a 70% interest in the Maripa project.

“Maripa adjoins to the south the Boulanger project being developed by Reunion Gold, where a recent high-grade gold discovery was re-ported,” according to the Canadian miner.
