Orezone Gold (TSX:ORE) Reports Results From Bomboré Intersecting 1.72 g/t Gold Over 40.40m at P8P9 & 5.59 g/t Gold Over 15.00m

Orezone Gold (TSX:ORE), a Canadian gold exploration and development company, has announced the latest results of its Phase III resource definition drill program at the Bomboré Gold Mine in Burkina Faso. The program has focused on expanding the P17 zone and converting Inferred Resources into Measured and Indicated, in preparation for the upcoming sulphide expansion study.

The company’s Phase III program has yielded positive results, with the latest diamond drill results from the P8P9 and Maga zones contributing to over 100,000 meters of additional drilling to be incorporated into the upcoming resource and reserve update and expansion study.

According to Orezone, this marks the final set of Phase III drill results, bringing the company one step closer to achieving its goal of expanding the P17 zone and converting Inferred Resources to Measured and Indicated. The successful completion of this phase is a significant milestone in the company’s ongoing efforts to develop the Bomboré Gold Mine into a world-class mining operation.

Patrick Downey, President and CEO commented in a press release: “Our 2022 resource definition and expansion drill program has exceeded expectations, with several new high-grade zones now well-defined, all of which remain open to further expansion. The most recent results from P8P9 have delineated a new thick, well-mineralized zone, with several high-grade intercepts over downhole widths ranging from 20m to 50m. This zone remains open in several directions including towards surface. All sulphide drill results have now been received and the resource update, which will incorporate over 100,000m of new drilling, is now well-advanced. The sulphide expansion study will provide the platform to significantly increase annual throughput and production at the Bomboré operation and is expected to be released in Q3-2023.”

Highlights from the results are as follows:

  • Delineation drilling at P8P9 revealed a higher-grade zone of plunging mineralization. To date, this zone has been traced over 150m along strike, and remains open at depth and towards surface. The higher-grade zone is similar to that observed in the emerging high-grade P17 zone located 8km to the south as it is associated with, and/or in proximity to, a granodiorite intrusion. Several intercepts at P8P9 returned thick well-mineralized intervals.
  • Phase III drilling at P8P9 was successful in further illustrating the continuity of mineralization below the current shallow reserve pit, with mineralization locally traced to a depth of ~250m below surface.
  • Additional drilling at Maga continued to return several high-grade intercepts in the sulphide zone, further illustrating down-dip continuity. These results follow the more extensive set of Maga drill results released on December 21, 2022.
  • Still outstanding from the Phase III drill program are the RC oxide drill results, which are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
