Shanta Gold Ltd (LON:SHG) announced high-grade drilling results from the phase 1 drilling programme at its West Kenya project.

Visible gold was identified in four different intersections across 15 holes drilled as part of the drilling programme conducted in April and May 2021 at the Isulu and Bushiangala deposits.

Some of the highlights were: 4.5 metres at 69.9 grammes a tonne (g/t) gold, including 3.0m at 94.4g/t; 2.0m at 24.4g/t gold; and 1.5m at 55.6g/t gold.

Phase 1 drilling, totalling 9,383 metres, is now complete. Phase 2 drilling, targeting 200-450 metres below surface, started in June and a third rig has also been mobilised to West Kenya.
