QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2016) - Komet Resources Inc. ("Komet" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KMT) is pleased to announce a series of exploration programs that will take place in Burkina Faso and Mali.
Firstly, a soil geochemical sampling program consisting of 2700 one-meter deep boreholes is currently taking place on the Guiro/Diouga permit. These samples are being collected on a 100m x 100m grid and an additional series of 1300 samples is planned on a tighter grid around gold anomalous zones that will be encountered. There could be up to a total of 4000 samples collected and analyzed. The program covers an area measuring 7.5 x 3.6 km that was the subject of previous geochemical surveys (1980s and 1990s) that revealed several gold anomalous areas where no follow-up was made.
Still on the Guiro/Diouga permit, an airborne geophysical survey will kick off in December 2016. A total of 5200 linear kilometers will be flown based on 150-meter line spacings using Geotech's versatile time-domain electromagnetic (VTEM) and magnetic system (including total field and horizontal magnetic gradient). This data will be of great help in identifying geological structures with gold potential and the next priority targets.
Finally, over 2000 meters of core drilling is planned at levels 3 and 4 of the Guiro mine to identify mineralized areas striking east and west of the current mine workings, as well as deeper in the mine at level 5. The results of this drilling will support current operations and allow definition of additional resources.
Moussala Permit in Mali
A drill program starting in December 2016 on the Moussala permit will consist of reverse circulation (RC) drilling on a small 25m x 50m grid, concentrated in the Dabia south zone. A total of 3280 metres is planned, consisting in 41 boreholes that will average 80 meters depth. Added to the historical results in the same area, this program will allow for the estimation of near-surface gold resources.
"After seeing our last quarterly results progress dramatically, this series of exploration programs is giving a real significance to our motto: Discovering by producing!" says André Gagné, Komet's President and Chief Executive Officer.
