Orezone Intersects 23.00 m of 2.84 g/t Gold at P17s Extension at its Bomboré Gold Mine






Orezone Gold Corporation (TSX: ORE) (OTCQX: ORZCF) is pleased to provide the final drill results from the Phase III program from P17S-NE along the P17 mineralized trend at its Bomboré Gold Mine, located in Burkina Faso.


The focus of the Phase III drilling at P17S was to better define the continuity of the repeat, folded high-grade granodiorite mineralized zones.


The drill results continue to be very positive confirming the following:

  • Down-plunge continuity of the mineralized zones at P17S has now been extended over an additional 100 m beyond the last set of drill results, with the system still open.
  • Drilling continues to intercept significant new mineralization outside of the current resource boundaries.
  • The mineralized zones remain open towards surface and at depth over a strike exceeding 300 m.


P17S Drilling Highlights:

  • 23.00 m of 2.84 g/t Au from 257.00 m including 11.00 m of 5.26 g/t Au from 269.00 m in hole BBD1125
  • 12.00 m of 2.13 g/t Au from 245.00 m including 1.00 m of 19.37 g/t Au from 245.00 m in hole BBD1124
  • 3.60 m of 5.58 g/t Au from 157.00 m in hole BBD1134
  • 3.80 m of 4.55 g/t Au from 312.20 m in hole BBD1141
  • 8.00 m of 3.40 g/t Au from 86.00 m including 1.00 m of 17.99 g/t Au from 88.00 m in hole BBD1133
  • 11.00 m of 1.78 g/t Au from 186.00 m including 2.00 m of 7.54 g/t Au from 192.00 m in hole BBD1143
  • 3.00 m of 4.15 g/t Au from 130.00 m including 1.00 m of 10.13 g/t Au from 131.00 m in hole BBD1133


Dr. Pascal Marquis, SVP of Exploration, stated, “These final drilling results at P17S confirm that this deposit continues to grow and is still open for further exploration. We have expanded the known zones significantly both along strike and down dip and intersected several new zones outside of the current resource pit shell. Based on the results of this program, we expect returning to P17S to drill later in 2022. Drilling is now well underway at the Siga deposits, which will then be followed by drilling to the North at the Maga deposits. Results from these programs will be released throughout the remainder of 2022.”
