Toronto, Ontario, April 3, 2018 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V:CVB) (Compass or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on the previously announced (see Compass news release dated Feb. 28, 2018) ongoing shallow soil geochemical survey program at the Ouassada exploration permit on its Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.
- Four additional parallel, northwest-trending gold anomalies have now been identified over strike lengths up to 12 km and widths up to 2 km (see Figure below), bringing the total to nine.
- Highest soil samples contain 3,800 parts per billion (ppb) gold (Au) (3.8 grams per tonne (g/t) Au) 550 m north of artisanal workings at Farabakoura. Highest gold concentrations are not restricted to areas of known workings.
- In this latest round of work, a total of 1,139 shallow soil samples were collected on the Ouassada permit where the average gold background for shallow soil samples was 5 ppb.
- Deep soil auger sampling at Ouassada is now 90% complete, and the shallow soil sampling is currently taking place on the Sankarani permit with 88% of the samples collected.
- High-resolution Airborne geophysical interpretation, and structural and hyperspectral remote sensing (satellite) studies have been initiated.
