Awalé Resources Ltd.
Awalé Resources is a gold exploration company focussed on the discovery of large high-grade deposits in the underexplored jurisdiction of Cote d’Ivoire. West Africa is now accepted as one of the world’s great gold provinces, and is the largest Paleoproterozoic gold producing region, with a near 10,000 tonne gold endowment. Cote d’Ivoire contains 33% of the prospective Birimian greenstone belts in West Africa, but less than 10% of total gold resources, making it an ideal location for new gold discoveries.
(1) Odienné Project
The Odienné project lies in the northwest of Côte d’Ivoire within the Denguelé Region, close to the borders of Mali and Guinea.
Empire High Grade Gold Discovery
On October 7, 2020, Awalé has released results from the first two holes of its phase 2 program at the Empire gold discovery. Five holes have now been completed at Empire Main with the sixth hole under way for total of approximately 800 metres drilled to date.

Highlights from these first two holes are as follows:
Current & Planned Work
Odienné – Empire Gold discovery (Currently drilling)
(2) Bondoukou Project – On going Drill Target Generation
The Bondoukou Project is located in the northeast of Cote d’Ivoire and is accessed via sealed roads from Abidjan to the city of Bondoukou.
Regional Scale Interpretation from Geophysics and surface mapping and sampling on the Bondoukou Permits has identified four (4) fertile fluid pathways, generating a pipeline of potential sites for gold mineralization.
Current & Planned Work
Bondoukou – Multiple high order Gold anomalies for drill testing late Q4
