Altus Strategies Priority Prospects
The company identified targets for drilling across its Djelimangara and Sebessounkoto Sud gold licences in Western Mali. The three priority prospects have a cumulative strike length of over 5.5km and were identified as the Company’s; Souroukoto Prospect, Manankoto Prospect and Soa Prospect.
“Our detailed review of the historic data on the DJ & SBK gold projects has defined a number of priority drill and trench targets,” said Steven Poulton, Chief Executive of Altus.
“With a cumulative strike length of over 5.5km the targets are often coincident with hard rock artisanal gold workings that can extend for up to 150m in length with individual shafts reportedly down to 40m.”
“The company will shortly commence detailed mapping around these prospects to further refine these targets.”
