The three best samples contained more than 100 ppb (parts per billion) gold – with a peak assay of 210 ppb (0.21 g/t) while there were 45 above 20 ppb and 135 greater than ten.
“Seeing 0.2 g/t Au peaks in soil sampling is a pretty good indicator that there is potential for economic-grade gold in the system,” said Tim Livesey, chief executive.
“We are particularly pleased to see confirmation and improved definition of the anomalism at the south-western end of the previously identified anomalous trends.
"Multiple parallel soil anomalies create a significant footprint for potential mineralisation, which we will be following up on as a priority during the next field season."
Oriole has as an option over 51% of BEIG3's Bibemi and Wapouzé licences in Cameroon to be met by spending US$1.56mln on exploration over two years.
Its stake can rise to 90% if Oriole spends a further US$1.56mln on exploration or produces a pre-feasibility study on either one of the projects.
