A 5,500m initial trench programme is now underway at Bibemi, but drilling has been put back until next year to allow better targeting.

“A more detailed Phase 2 infill trenching programme on Zone 1 and Zone 2 at a 100m spacing will enable better delineation of the mineralised zones in these high-priority areas, to ensure that the subsequent drill programme can be targeted with higher confidence,”

Tim Livesey, Oriole’s chief executive, said the early field work had at Bibemi confirmed the close proximity of the bedrock interface to surface.

“We expect that the two-phase trenching in these areas will lead to better definition of the existing zones and possible extensions of those areas currently supported by soil anomalies alone.”

At Wapouzé, soil sampling will start next month.
