African Gold Group, Inc. (TSX-V: AGG) is pleased to provide an update from the Company’s Kobada Gold Project located in southern Mali, including additional high grade intercepts in the northern extension of the main shear zone.


Highlights Include (Table 1):


  • High grade intersections located outside of the known mineralization, highlight the expansion potential at Kobada
  • The Company is targeting to release an updated mineral resource statement in the coming weeks
  • Drill hole KB19_P2_22 returned 3.59g/t Au over 9.80 metres (m) including 30g/t over 1.10m
  • Drill hole KB19_P2_23 returned 5.33g/t Au over 3.20m, 21.60g/t Au over 1.0m, 15.70g/t Au over 1.2m and 11.00g/t Au over 1.04m
  • Drill hole KB19_P2_26 returned 1.64g/t Au over 2.16m and 6.20g/t over 1.40m
  • Drill hole KB19_P2_27 returned 3.63g/t Au over 1.0m


“Yet again we have exceeded expectations by repeatedly intersecting grades above 30g/t,” says Dr. Andreas Rompel, Vice President Exploration, “and we have confirmed our interpretation that the mineralization extends further north. We are excited to further explore the mineralization of this northern extension of the yet open-ended Kobada shear zone.”


The Kobada Gold Project is a fully licensed and permitted advanced development project located in the prolific Birimian Greenstone belt in Southern Mali. The Company is working towards delivering the definitive feasibility study in Q2 2020 as a part of the final process before commencement of construction.


Following on from the previously reported drill holes of the Phase 2 drilling program, the next batch of assay results received from SGS laboratory in Bamako continue to demonstrate the large extent of the mineralization along strike and down dip along the highly prolific and auriferous Kobada shear zone. Results from the Phase 2 drilling program will be incorporated into an updated mineral resource statement targeted to be released within the next few weeks.


To date, the Company has not discovered the northern end of mineralization.  Furthermore, AGG intends to step away from the Kobada Shear to test the neighbouring and parallel striking Gosso Shear, which has been exposed by shallow artisanal mining.


  • Drill hole 22 is part of the Section Line 10 (Figure 2) and drill hole 23 is part of Section Line 11.
  • Figures 2 and 3 show that the drill holes are stepping out of the existing main shear zone testing the width of the mineralized zone and progressing further northwards.
  • The Company is targeting only oxides that extend to an average depth of 150m.
