RC Drilling Confirms East-West Structures at Farabakoura

Toronto, Ontario, August 19, 2019 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on the remaining RC exploration drilling at the Farabakoura artisanal workings on the Ouassada permit, Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.


  • Assay results from the final 11 reverse circulation (RC) drill holes (totalling 1,522 m) from the Farabakoura artisanal workings
  • Drilling primarily conducted to test east-west trending vein structures and provide geological information
  • Best interval: 8 m @ 1.20 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) from 24 m (OURC040)
  • All fieldwork has now ceased on the property due to the start of the rainy season

Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, said, “These final RC drilling results at Farabakoura have confirmed that gold is present in east-west trending veins associated with late faulting, and previous drilling indicates the best mineralization is located at the contact between intrusive rocks and the surrounding country rock along a northwest-southeast trend. Meanwhile, we eagerly await the assay results of our recent diamond drilling on the Creek Zone to add to our understanding of this already extensive mineralized zone. We look forward to fully utilizing all of the data we’ve gathered over the last nine months during our next phase of drilling, scheduled to begin in November.”
