Alahiné encompasses an area of 64km2. A soil program was successful in delineating broad zones of gold anomalism along the eastern side of the licence and a significant number of single and multiple highly anomalous sites across the licence.
Summary of merged Phase 1 and Phase 2 gold BLEG soil results overlain on WorldView-3 satellite imagery of licence. The licence is 8km x 8 km in size. Data points have been enlarged to build a solid colour pattern to better highlight distribution of values. Gold values greater than 50 ppb are considered significant particularly where there is an associated cluster of 20-50 ppb values.
As defined by soil sampling during 2018 and 2019, there are three areas with significant gold anomalism extending over approximately 8 km in length (Areas A, B and C). Additionally, twelve single station anomalies with >1000ppb gold and 8 anomalies with 500 to 1000ppb gold elsewhere in the licence must be further progressed. There are substantial areas of lateritic cover may conceal zones of structurally hosted vein mineralisation and supergene enriched or basal laterite hosted gold.
Following a successful Soil Program, a reconnaissance program of 21 Reverse Circulation (RC) drill holes commenced on 12 December 2019 and was completed 24 February 2020. The program totalled 2406 metres to typical depths of 100-120 metres downhole. This was done to assess grade distribution, vein abundance, geology and weathering depth, and alteration of the bedrock on short traverses and at individual anomaly sites bearing in mind the vein target objective.
