Roxgold Management Comments

“The exploration program at our Boussoura Project continues to expand the mineralised footprint while extending the strike length of the identified vein sets to multiple kilometers in length”

“The project now has over 250 holes, totalling nearly 50,000 metres, drilled into it which have returned consistent assays demonstrating broad intersections of high grade mineralization – which is characteristic of the style of mineralization found within the prolific Houndé Gold Belt.

“With each round of drilling, we grow more confident in the scale potential of this asset and for it to become our next advanced project. Boussoura is advancing with a combination of scout and infill drill programs towards the goal of releasing a maiden resource by the end of this year.

“Boussoura adds to our organic growth pipeline, along with the Séguéla Project in Côte d’Ivoire progressing towards construction this year, and the ongoing underground and near-surface drilling at Yaramoko.”

John Dorward, President and CEO of Roxgold.



“Ongoing scout drilling on additional vein corridors to the south-west of Fofora Main and VC2 has been very successful in confirming the prospectivity of several new targets which continues to highlight the potential of this large 9 km2 target area.

“Results such as 19m at 2.02 g/t Au in BSR-21-RC-FFR-164 from 0m at VC3, 3m at 33.6 g/t Au in BSR-21-RC-FFR-201 from 6m at VC4, and 1m at 53.2 g/t Au in BSR-21-RC-FFR-206 from 46m at VC5 emphasise the robust project pipeline at Boussoura.

“Meanwhile, infill and extension drilling at Fofora Main and VC2 continues to grow the potential with results such as 35 m at 4.1 g/t Au in BSR-21-RC-FFR-218 from 86m from Fofora Main and 6m at 11.3 g/t Au in BSR-21-RC-FFR-167 from 90m at VC2.

“In addition, drilling on the northern extent of Galgouli continues to intersect high grades including 1.8m at 130.9 g/t Au in drill hole BSR-21-RD-GAL-048 from 144.7m.

“A new structure in a different geological domain to the south-east of Galgouli returned 7m at 6.3 g/t Au in BSR-21-RC-064A from 72m, further highlighting the prospectivity of this area and opening up new opportunities.”
