Tribune Resources (ASX: TBR) today announced that it has commenced the next phase of resource definition drilling at the Company’s 100%-owned 1.81 million ounce Japa gold project in Ghana. The current reverse circulation and diamond core drilling campaign is anticipated to continue until June 2021.
The Phase 2 drilling campaign will total approximately 55,000 metres of combined RC and diamond core. The principal objective of the program is to infill sample coverage through most of the Inferred and the more robust zones of unclassified mineralisation at Adiembra to elevate the classification up to a minimum Indicated category for future Reserve estimation.
The program will also test along-strike extensions to the Adiembra system through follow-up of past reconnaissance programs and areas of artisanal mining activity, infill existing drill coverage along the greater than three kilometre long Japa-Dadieso Trend, test conceptual targets within the Mining Lease and commence sterilisation drilling across areas tentatively identified for future mine infrastructure requirements.
