Chesser Extends High-Grade Discovery at Diamba Sud with Widespread Intersections

PR NewsWire | Nov 25 2020

BRISBANE, Australia, Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Chesser Resources Limited ("Chesser" or "the Company"; ASX:CHZ) is pleased to provide an update on drilling results from its flagship Diamba Sud Gold Project in Senegal, West Africa.


Area D

  • Drilling intercepted widespread intervals of thick, shallow, high-grade oxide mineralisation, significantly extending zones from previous drilling in multiple directions. Results include;

44m at 4.37 g/t gold from 18m, including

4m at 13.29 g/t gold from 20m
4m at 9.96 g/t gold from 54m, and
1m at 13.30 g/t gold from 60m

49m at 3.64 g/t gold from 10m, including

8m at 10.75 g/t gold from 34m

38m at 4.36 g/t gold from 2m, including

22m at 6.66 g/t gold from 10m,

24m at 2.87 g/t gold from 10m, including

2m at 12.0 g/t gold from 12m

17m at 1.90 g/t gold from 48m

  • Deeper drilling returned sulphide mineralisation from structural zones and hydrothermal breccias in fresh rock as likely feeder zones to overlying oxide mineralisation. Results include;

17.9m at 2.36 g/t gold from 82.3m, including

0.95m at 19.40 g/t gold from 89.35m

5m at 3.57 g/t gold from 82m, including

0.9m at 12.80 g/t gold from 85m

14m at 2.34 g/t gold from 114m

"We are delighted to report very positive results from the first 11 of 27 holes drilled at Area D following the wet season. We have extended the thick oxide mineralisation by over 100m in multiple directions from the original discovery mineralisation with these step outs with more results pending. Deeper drilling has also intersected wide zones of mineralisation, with numerous mineralised structural zones pointing to likely controls on mineralisation. Results from the remaining program will assist to fully understand the controls of mineralisation. Whilst this discovery is still at an early stage, extensions to the thick oxide zones are very exciting. Results from an additional 16 holes from Area D are pending, as well as extensional drilling at Area A, which is ongoing. We are looking forward to releasing more results of this extensive program as they become available." commented Mike Brown, Managing Director and CEO of Chesser Resources.
