Toronto, Ontario, August 26, 2019 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on exploration activity on the Faraba-Coura permit, Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.
- Three discrete gold zones (up to 1 km) identified over a distance of 4.8 km from a shallow soil survey, and 2 km along strike from Farabakoura gold workings
- Anomalies are coincident with crustal-scale faults cutting intrusions
- Results reinforce anomalies previously identified through wide-spaced, deep soil auger sampling
- Data review suggests a similar style of gold mineralization found at Farabakoura might also be present in newly tested area (Boumban)
Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, said, “While drilling progressed at Farabakoura, our field teams continued exploring other target areas on our adjacent Faraba-Coura permit. Combining the results of this latest work with our previous findings, we now have three robust targets for the next phase of bedrock drilling, which we intend to initiate later this year. While our primary focus remains on the gold workings Farabakoura and Kabangoué, it is also important to note that these promising target areas represent only a small fraction of our prospective total land holdings.”
