RC Drilling Intercepts 7 M @ 15.58 G/T Gold at Farabakoura

Gold Mineralization Extends over 770 M

Toronto, Ontario, July 29, 2019 – Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on the ongoing exploration drilling at the Farabakoura artisanal workings on the Ouassada permit, Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.


  • Latest reverse circulation (RC) (23 RC drill holes, totalling 3,339 m) and diamond drilling program completed at Farabakoura artisanal workings
  • Best interval: 7 m @ 15.38 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) from 111 m (OURC030), including 1 m @ 60.56 g/t Au
  • Intercepted gold mineralization in nine holes, increasing the known strike length of the mineralized system to 770 m
  • 995 m diamond drilling program completed at Farabakoura designed to test depth continuity of the mineralized system

Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, said, “Our final RC drilling program for the season has successfully extended our primary target zone, defining gold mineralization over 770 m from the Farabakoura Pit Structure to the Creek Zone. Our understanding of this somewhat complex mineralized system increases with each hole drilled. With the pending results of the just completed diamond drilling program, we will be able to develop a more complete understanding of the structures, geology and style of mineralization in the system. These results will be used to supplement the extensive work we have conducted over the past 18 months in preparation for launching the next drill program in November, following the rainy season.”
