New gold corridor discovered in Ghana

A new gold anomalous corridor has been outlined at Basabli in Ghana, Mining Weekly reports.

Azumah Resources has been carrying out a regional auger soil sampling programme at the Wa-Lawra gold project in the north-west of the country and has discovered a four-kilometre long gold corridor.

It is located 40 kilometres north of the 500,000-ounce Kunche gold deposit.

The area features several elevated gold values in excess of 0.2 grams per tonne of gold, with some denser areas of up to 1.63 grams per tonne.

"The main anomaly at Basabli is very robust and we are confident it will provide the focus for another drilling campaign in the next few months," said the company's managing director, Stephen Ross.

"This recently completed programme will be a precursor to further drilling later in the year at Kunche and the newly identified gold corridor to the north, with the objective of further increasing our gold resource inventory."

Ghana, in West Africa, used to be known as the Gold Coast. When the Portuguese arrived in the 15th century they found so much gold near the Ankobra and Volta rivers that the called the area Mina ("Mine").
