We are on track to achieving our immediate goals of completing two full fences of drill holes and getting the samples into the lab before Christmas. Our objective is to complete 13,000 metres of RC drilling by the end of April next year. We will be announcing the results of this initial drilling in tranches as we continue, beginning early in the New Year.”

Dr. Madani Diallo, Compass’s Exploration Manager, added, “It is exciting to be able to return to drilling some of the numerous targets we have identified over the past two years. Our team is off to a good start with the drilling and the Capital Drilling team has maintained a healthy pace of one hole per day, demonstrating the importance of having an experienced team with quality equipment. We also welcome SEMAFO’s technical team, which has provided useful input in the positioning of the first drill lines.”
