Field Work Starts on Farabakoura Trend in Preparation for Newest Drilling Program

Toronto, Ontario, November 6, 2019 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) announces that it has launched its follow-up field program on the Farabakoura Trend, which includes the Farabakoura and Kabangoué artisanal workings and the high-priority Boumban prospect, on its Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.


  • The annual rains have ended, and field teams have mobilized to start preparing access for renewed drilling at Farabakoura and Kabangoue artisanal workings
  • 10,500 m drilling is planned on six prospects on the Sikasso property
  • Drilling is expected to begin in late November

Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, commented, “With the end of the wet season, we are now deploying our field teams to prepare our drilling sites for our next exciting drilling program. In addition to the main Farabakoura zone, we will be drilling on five additional prospect areas, where we hope to confirm the presence of bedrock gold indicated so far by near surface geochemistry and the presence of artisanal workings. The proposed 10,500 m RC drilling program will go a long way to confirming the prospectivity of these areas, with the aim of determining the best location for resource definition drilling. We expect that it will take three weeks to prepare the drilling pads, and for the ground conditions to allow the safe movement of our drilling equipment.”
