Galiano Gold management comments

“The results from the drilling at Dynamite Hill, Kaniago West and Midras South demonstrate the long term exploration potential at the AGM.


“We will publish an updated Mineral Reserve and Resource statement later in Q1, 2021 which will include a maiden Mineral Resource for Miradani and a Mineral Reserve and Resource for Dynamite Hill, a previously operating pit.


“Both Kaniago West and Midras South are located within a 10km radius of the processing plant and have shown promising intercepts. We expect to continue to drill out these properties in 2022.


“In addition to these targets our 2022 drilling will also focus on exploring the underground potential at both Nkran and Miradani. Deep drilling at both projects is planned  to commence in early 2022.”
