IronRidge Resources reports more gold intersections from drilling at Côte d’Ivoire project

Australian explorer IronRidge Resources has highlighted further high-grade intersections in additional results from a second phase drilling programme at its Zaranou gold project in Côte d’Ivoire.

The AIM-listed firm said it has received ‘additional high-grade and broad low-grade’ results from drilling at the Ehuasso Main Target. Composite results from reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the target also confirmed continuity of mineralisation within the spaced drill grid.

“The new 4 [metre] composite sample results received for additional RC holes drilled within the Ehuasso Main target are significant as they confirm mineralisation continuity along 1.4 km of strike with mineralisation still open in both directions”, said IronRidge COO Len Kolff in a statement.

“Field teams are now taking a well-earned break, whilst a relief crew is on-site to commence site access construction for a planned third phase infill RC programme within the Ehuasso Main target and step-out AC exploration programme along the Ebilassokro, Ehuasso and Yakasse targets, to commence end Q3 2020”, he added.

The announcement is the latest in a string of high-grade gold results at Zaranou over the last two months. On-site teams have been able to continue working throughout this time, with strict COVID-19 measures in place.
