Both exploration areas are within 20 kilometres of Iamgold’s Boto gold project, host to some 2.49mln ounces of gold, expected to obtain mining permits later this year.

Iamgold has the option to spend up to US$8mln to earn a 70% interest in the project as part of the agreement.

“We are in the process of scheduling a technical review meeting with our partner early in the new year to discuss the results to date and the next phase of the work programme, which we understand will progress the exploration further north,” Oriole’s chief executive Tim Livesey said in a release.

“The most exciting target within the licence to date has been Faré as it has the potential to be a stand-alone deposit.”
