Oriole Resources PLC - Oriole Resources looks forward to start of drilling at Bibemi as rig mobilises

Oriole Resources PLC (LON:ORR) has told investors that the drill rig and equipment for a planned exploration programme at the Bibemi gold project in Cameroon is now being mobilised to site.

The rig is expected to arrive in Cameroon in early December, around three weeks later than originally expected as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19) related border restrictions.

Nonetheless, Oriole said it still expects to kick-off the drill programme before the end of 2020, as planned.

"The mobilisation of the drill rig is a key milestone in the work stream and we are working hard to ensure a clean passage through customs when the equipment arrives in Cameroon, in anticipation of drilling commencing before the end of the year,” said Tim Livesey, Oriole chief executive in a statement.

“A programme of 17 holes for 1,940 metres has already been designed but results from the recently completed mapping programmes to test the north-eastern and south-western extensions at Bakassi are expected to deliver further drill targets.”

Livesey added: "We are confident that Bibemi will continue to build on the good results we've already yielded from the rock chip sampling and trenching programmes, and it will be great to get some vertical extension to the significant trends that the team have already identified on surface.”

Oriole noted that its team has been working in Cameroon since early October undertaking detailed geological mapping at the northern extension of the Bakassi zone along with reconnaissance mapping over the southern extension.
