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.

Projects in Hand

(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

  • High Grade mineralisation with visible gold – robust mineralisation and continuity over central drill zone
  • Open in all directions
  • Empire is a ‘classic’ orogenic shear zone hosted gold target, which has potential to build to +1m Oz rapidly
  • Hosted in within a brittle/ductile deformation zone of a diorite body with high grade quartz extension veins that has intruded a pre-existing WNW trending mylonite bearing structure.

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. Up to 1,500 drill metres have been planned for Empire Main and a further 4,500 metres for strike extension targets from the Empire Main discovery.

Highlights from these first two holes are as follows:

  • OEDD-16: 17 metres at 3.5 grams per tonne gold from 86 metres downhole, including one metre at 11.9 grams per tonne and one metre at 11.7 grams per tonne from 87 metres and 90 metres, respectively;
  • OEDD-17: eight metres at 1.6 grams per tonne gold from 65 metres, including three metres at 3.4 grams per tonne gold from 66 metres and six metres at 1.2 grams per tonne from 82 metres.

Current & Planned Work

Odienné – Empire Gold discovery (Currently drilling)

  • Discovery Main Zone – Extension drilling and plunge testing
  • Along strike from the Main zone – 3 new high order Auger geochemical targets of equal size to the main zone which are drill ready along the 3km anomalous trend

(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

  • Fako target – Awari Shear
  • Samanda Prospect
    • two 3km long gold in soil targets
    • Greater than 10ppb gold (“Au”) soil anomalies with >40ppb Au cores and a peak value of 4,297ppb Au.
  • Kodio Trend – 17.5km long gold in soil anomaly with multiple high order anomalies

(3) Abengourou Project

The Abengourou project is located in the Comoe region, close to the regions capital Abengourou.

Results and Planned work

Results from exploration:

  • Confirmation by Awalé of large soil anomalies
  • Planned / Current Works
    • Ongoing geological mapping, pitting and trenching.
    • Following successful geo-chemical results – possible scout drilling of high priority drill targets.
  • Nianda Permit untested along same geology and structures as Amélékia
    • Stream (Silt) sampling at Nianda.
    • Forms part of Awalé’s prioritisation pipeline

Investment Summary

  • Under explored Jurisdiction – 33% of West Africa’s Birimian Geology with less than 10 percent of resources
  • Large strategic gold anomalous land package with district scale over 3 project areas covering 2,307 km2 :
    • Bondoukou Project, 100% (1,192 km2)
    • Abengourou Project, 100% (718 km2)
    • Odienné Project, 90% (397 km2)
  • Maiden Drill program delivers first gold discovery at the Empire Prospect – Odienné project
  • Rapid advancement of defined drill targets at Bondoukou with material advancement in geological and mineralisation understanding
  • Successful Board and Management Team, with proven record of value delivery for shareholders.
