Project Overview

The Zolowo exploration licence covers an area of approximately 466km2 in the Lofa County of north western Liberia and located roughly 25km northeast of the Company’s Bella Yella gold project and 190km northeast of the capital, Monrovia. It was selected based on a comprehensive in-house analysis of available datasets including geological maps, historic mineral occurrences, remote sensing data and satellite imagery. The licence is situated on the south-western portion of the West African Craton and contains an approximately 22km stretch of a significant 33km long northeast-southwest trending Archaean-aged greenstone belt, which forms a prominent ridge that traverses the licence. Zolowo hosts numerous and extensive artisanal alluvial gold workings, which are mapped as being up to 500m wide and 100m long in places. Many of the artisanal workings coincide with areas where gold was historically documented in mapping undertaken by the United States Geological Survey.

Exploration Programme

An initial phase of reconnaissance exploration will now be undertaken by the Company’s technical team. This programme will include mapping and sampling of high priority hard rock targets and artisanal workings. It is expected that a licence-wide stream sediment survey will subsequently be conducted in order to define the primary sources of the alluvial gold fields.
