Tembo Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TEM) (FSE: T23A) is pleased to announce the first results of the 2022 diamond drilling campaign on the Company’s Tembo Project in Tanzania. The Company has designed a 7,000m programme of drilling of which approximately 5,500m is expected to be completed before the drillers break commences in December. Significant gold intersections have been achieved and structural interpretation of the results is providing an improved understanding of the controls in mineralization at the three targets, Ngula 1, Nyakagwe Village and Nyakagwe East.

Gold results of all holes drilled to date in this 2022 campaign are tabulated below.
Tembo Exploration Manager, Hendrik Meiring, commented, “The initial drill program for this year has successfully confirmed the styles of mineralization and the key structural controls within the three targeted areas This new information is critical to the updating of our geological modeling and the focusing of the next stages of our drilling program.”
Tembo President & CEO, David Scott, stated, “Our 2022 drilling programme has progressed well and results have been extremely encouraging, supporting and enhancing our geological understanding and confirming the presence of significant gold mineralization. This will assist in ensuring a well targeted follow-up drilling programme in 2023 with the goal of initial resource definition.”
The above information has been prepared under the supervision of Hendrik Meiring, Pr. Sci. Nat., who is designated as a “Qualified Person” with the ability and authority to verify the authenticity and validity of the data.
A stringent QA/QC practice is applied to all sample batches. A Verified Reference Material standard is inserted every 20th sample, a known blank or blank standard every 20th sample and all samples with assays greater than 0.5g/t are re-assayed. 1% of all samples are submitted to an alternative laboratory for check analysis. In addition the laboratory adheres to an internal QA/QC procedure including standard samples and repeats and blanks inserted independently.
Widths represent drill intersection widths not corrected for borehole inclination and dip of the geological zone. True widths have not been determined. The borehole inclination of 60deg and sub vertical dip of the structures suggests that the true width will be approximately 86% of the intersected width.
Boreholes have not been drilled in numerical sequence and not all boreholes in a sequence have necessarily been drilled. Borehole numbers represent the original borehole identification assigned when planned. No capping of high-grade values has been applied to the assay results.
