Awale Resources Update on Odienne in Cote d'Ivoire
represent step out holes drilled strike east of last known mineralization from the discovery program. The current diamond drill program for Empire Main is now complete with 13 holes drilled for 1695 meters. Including the 3 holes in this release 5 holes have now been reported, with assay pending for the remainder. Highlights from these 3 holes are as follows.
OEDD-24: 15 meters (m) at 13.1 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au) from 69m including 2m at 20g/t Au from 69m, 7.6m at 20.1 g/t Au from 74.7m, and 1m at 129.8 g/t Au from 76m.
OEDD-18: 11 m at 4.9 g/t Au from 40m downhole including 1m at 4.8g/t Au and 1m at 40.2 g/t Au from 40 and 41m, respectively.
OEDD-19: 2m at 3.2 g/t Au from 70m, and 6 meters at 1.7 g/t Au from 103m
These high grade assay results continue to complement the discovery drilling sections and the previously reported Phase 2 program being:
OEDD-16: 17 m at 3.5 g/t Au from 86m downhole including 1m at 11.9 g/t Au and 1m at 11.7 g/t Au from 87 and 90m respectively.
RC Drilling over the eastern extension targets from Empire Main has progressed exceptionally well after some initial weather and drilling issues, 28 RC and 4 diamond holes have been completed for 2771 meters over 2 of the 3 extension anomalies. Approximately 1200 meters in 13 holes remain to complete the first pass drill program over these new anomalies. The crews have been placed on standby from the 25th of October in anticipation of the October 31st election and work will recommence as soon possible after the election period. The company expects steady results flow from empire Main and the extension targets over the ensuing weeks.
