The resource value now stands at 52 million tonnes at 0.9g/tonne for 1.3 million ounces of gold.

A statement from the company said, “The gold deposit is hosted in relatively soft saprolite or clay-rich material, making it easier and less expensive to mine it due to its open pit potential.”

A drill conducted by Burey Gold has also shown higher grade material within a number of primary layers.

The Mansounia project is located 2km south of the Kiniero gold mine and plant.

Late last year, Burey uncovered extensions to the zones of primary gold mineralisation through a drilling campaign.

Notable intersections included 30 metres at 0.68 g/tonne gold from surface, 17 metres at 0.94 g/tonne from 37 metres and 13 metres at 1.82 g/tonne from 33 metres.

Burey’s drilling program of 60 holes for 5,884 metres has variously tested the extensions of and infill along 10 drill sections to the south of the previously defined Mansounia Gold Project.
