West African gold explorer and developer Tietto Minerals (ASX: TIE) has reported further high‐grade gold results from infill drilling at the AG Core prospect within its flagship Abujar gold project in Côte d’Ivoire.

Drilling of seven holes for a total 2780.5 metres along the main Abujar Shear returned highlights of 12m at 20.96 grams per tonne gold from 298m including 5m at 48.57g/t, including 2m at 120.21g/t; 6m at 6.36g/t gold from 329m including 4m at 9.4g/t; and 9m at 8.1g/t gold from 258m including 2m at 28.64g/t.

The holes were designed to fill several drilling gaps at depth and allow conversion of inferred resources to the indicated category.

Assays are pending for 28 diamond infill holes for 4040m drilled at AG Core and AG South.

Strong results

Managing director Dr Caigen Wang said Abujar drilling continues to deliver strong results.

“Our infill drilling is adding high‐grade gold intercepts to AG Core and these confirm the continuity of plunging high‐grade shoots at depth,” he said.

“We hope to incorporate these high‐impact results into a mineral resource update planned for before year end.”

The update will also include assays from an expanded infill program aimed at growing Abujar’s measured resources over a 2.9 kilometre strike at AG Core and AG South.

This area is expected to be one of the first to be mined during the initial stages of gold production later this year.

Largest producing mine

Abujar is expected to become one of the largest gold producing mines in Côte d’Ivoire, with an estimated production rate of 260,000 ounces gold in the first year and 1.2 million ounces over the first six years.

Tietto’s six diamond rigs are still actively working, with more than 100,000m of drilling forecast for this calendar year.

The program includes further drilling at AG Core to assess potential below the planned definitive feasibility study open pit and testing the limits of gold mineralisation, which remains open at depth.
