Great Quest assays 24 km2 areas and collects Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières’ previously reported work, which includes trenching, geophysics, and RAB drilling. RAB drilling cuts 2.56g/t gold over 19m; 8.9 g/t gold over 3m and 4.9 g/t gold over 3m. RAB drilling will make use of Great Quest's exploration base next to Kenieba for preparing core logging and assay sample.

The geologists will commence work on nearby 42 km2 Fambina regions that has orpailleur working areas and at Dabia Ouest.

Avion and Randgold have improved the potential of the western Mali Birimian greenstone belt and the Loulo belt through new declarations. Randgold has started mining works at the Gounkoto project, which has favourable tourmaline sandstone located few kilometres to the west of the Sanoukou project.
