Arc Minerals Limited (LON:ARCM) has started a comprehensive soil sampling programme to test the potential for gold between Akyanga and Akyanga East in the DRC.
The objective is to test for Akyanga deposit-type stratigraphy, which, if proven, could host significant additional gold mineralisation
Nick von Schirnding, Arc Minerals' executive chairman, said: "Our current drilling programme continues to intersect broad and high-grade mineralisation to the south of the Akyanga Deposit and the geology remains open in multiple directions.
"The area in-between the Akyanga Deposit and the Akyanga East Prospect has not been systematically explored and the aim of the current soil sampling programme is to generate some high-quality drill targets with the aim to expand the current resource envelope to the east as well as the south.
Akyanaga currently has a 1.57Moz gold resource.
