Project progresses Vancouver-based Galiano Gold has released initial positive drilling results testing the extension of mineralisation for the underground mining potential at its Asanko gold mine in Ghana.
"Several mineralized intercepts indicate grades and widths that may be amenable to underground mining and additional drilling is currently being contemplated to follow-up on these initial results," the Cnaadian business said in a statement.
"It is encouraging to have intercepted mineralization with these grades and at depths well below the existing Mineral Resource at Nkran," said Matt Badylak, the president and CEO of Galiano Gold. "These results are the beginning of our work to understand the underground mining potential below the known Cut 3 Resource. The outcomes of this program are not only encouraging for Nkran but may also form an initial proof of concept for underground mining potential on the Asankrangwa Gold Belt."
