Toronto, Ontario, September 5, 2019 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) announces results from the recently completed diamond core drilling program at the Farabakoura artisanal workings on the Ouassada permit, Sikasso Property in southern Mali.


Diamond drilling at Farabakoura intercepts high-grade gold mineralization in bedrock, including:

  • 6.1 m @ 65.6 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) from 19.5 m (OUDD004)
  • 13 m @ 9.25 g/t Au from 21.1 m (OUDD006)
  • 7.0 m @ 1.45 g/t Au from 76 m (OUDD008)
  • 7.1 m @ 2.13 g/t Au from 68.9 m (OUDD007)
  • All seven diamond drill holes (total 995 m) intersected significant gold mineralization within a 200 m section of the 750 m long Farabakoura high-grade zone
  • Follow-up drilling in Q4 will test open areas and extent of gold rich zone

Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, said, “The conclusion of this season’s drilling at Farabakoura has returned some spectacular high-grade gold intercepts over an extensive area, as well as valuable new structural and geologic data that continues to excite our team. In addition to finding such strong gold values, this work has revealed new structures with significant potential that we will begin drilling in Q4 once the rainy season ends.”
