Toronto, Ontario, September 17, 2018 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on the initial results from the completed shallow soil geochemical survey program over the Kalé exploration permit on its Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.
● Four discrete anomalous gold zones were identified over a distance of 15 km on the Kalé permit
● Highest soil sample contained 127 parts per billion (ppb) gold (Au) over a permit with no known outcrops
● Gold anomalism is coincident with deep linear structures, interpreted as faults, identified in the recently completed remote sensing and geophysics studies
● 1,746 samples were collected and analyzed on the areas considered the most prospective for gold mineralization
Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, commented, “These latest shallow soil assay results from the Kalé permit provide us with more evidence of the mounting potential across much of our Sikasso property. Our focused soil sampling study over Kalé has identified four areas over a distance of 14 km that require follow-up geochemistry. Importantly, our remote sensing and geophysical studies suggest these anomalies are located on the fault zone associated with at least two other known gold deposits. When field operations begin after the rains, these will be four more areas where we look forward to conducting additional work.”
