IronRidge Resources Limited, the African focussed minerals exploration company, is pleased to report multiple large‐scale gold soil anomalies up to 4 kilometres long, at the Zaranou Gold Project in Côte d’Ivoire. The license borders with Ghana and is along strike from significant third‐party operating gold mines including Chirano (5Moz), Bibiani (5.5Moz) and Ahafo (17Moz).  


Multiple kilometre‐scale gold soil anomalies defined at the Zaranou Gold Project, with the largest soil anomaly up to 4km long.

Soil anomalies are along strike of the recently announced high‐grade Aircore (‘AC’) drilling results, including 6m @ 15.11g/t gold and 22m @ 3.39g/t gold, zones of hard‐rock artisanal workings and coincident with a major geophysical contact.

Soil anomalies defined at >50ppb with individual results up to 6g/t gold in initial 800m line spacing broad spaced sampling grid. Soil program area covered some 152km2.

Gold corridor with combined soil anomalous zones and hard‐rock artisanal mining zones now defined over a 47km strike distance; large‐scale system with significant strike extent.

Significant 4km long soil anomaly defined along the southern margin of the Yakasse granite and coincident with historical drill hole collars located on the ground.  

 Infill soil sampling to 400m line spacing now commenced to refine soil anomalies.



Commenting on the Company’s latest progress, Len Kolff, Chief Operating Officer of IronRidge, said:   “Broad spaced soil sampling has defined multiple kilometre‐scale soil anomalies along strike from the recently  announced high‐grade AC drilling results including 6m @ 15.11g/t gold and 22m @ 3.39g/t gold.  “Soil anomalies are defined at broadly >50ppb gold levels with multiple individual soil results up to 6/t gold;which is highly encouraging and continue to demonstrate significant scale potential with over 47km strike of  gold anomalies defined that remains open to the north‐east. 


“The largest most coherent soil anomaly occurs in the south‐west of the license area along the south‐east marginof the Yakasse granite body and is coincident with historical drill hole collars located in the field. 


“Soil anomalism is along strike from a 16km zone of hard‐rock artisanal workings with recently announced highgrade AC drilling results including 6m @ 15.11g/t gold and 22m @ 3.39g/t gold and defines a 47km  long zone  of gold anomalism indicating significant scale potential of the mineralised system.”
