Riverstone Resources has reported drilling results from seven diamond core hole from the 90%-owned Goulagou II deposit (GGII). This deposit is a part of the company’s flagship Karma gold project in West Africa. These holes were drilled as part of a program specifically designed to expand two high-grade mineralization shoots to depth and along strike.

The company has encountered 4.06 g/t gold over 22 m, 3.82 g/t gold over 28 m and 2.83 g/t gold over 84 m in hole DD-12-077; 7.18 g/t gold over 4 m and 3.97 g/t gold over 20 m in hole DD-12-073; 2.83 g/t gold over 10 m and 2.41 g/t gold over 40 m in hole DD-12-058; 1.65 g/t gold over 18 m and 2.78 g/t gold over 20 m in hole DD-12-080; and 3.43 g/t gold over 24.75 m and 2.41 g/t gold over 46.75 m in hole DD-12-081.
Mineralization at the GGII deposit expands to more than 2,500 m towards east-west and approximately 250 m in depth during deeper drilling in localized regions. These holes have expanded high-grade mineralization from former holes drilled along strike and down dip.
The high-grade mineralized shoots are exposed to depth and along strike in two directions. Holes drilled formerly in these high-grade mineralized shoots yielded numerous high-grade intersections, which include 2.45 g/t gold over 26 m, 3.6 g/t gold over 18 m and 4.3 g/t gold over 41 m.
Earlier, the company had drilled more than 85,000 m on the Karma project. It is anticipated that these drilling results will add to the Karma deposits’ overall resources.
