Sylla Gold (SYG) announced that phase 2 reverse circulation and air core drilling have commenced on its Niaouleni Gold Project in Mali.

The purpose of the Phase 2 drilling program is to:

  • Complete step-out drilling from previous high-grade drilling intercepts
  • Expand the mineralized footprint of the Niaouleni South target to both the north and south.
  • Further define the structural geometry of the interpreted Kobada Shear extension on the property

The planned drilling program includes approximately 1,600 m of AC drilling followed by 2,330 m of RC drilling along several drill fences. The drilling is designed to expand the footprint of mineralization at Niaouleni South and further test adjacent geochemical anomalies.

Regan Isenor, President and CEO of Sylla, commented on the news.

“We had great success in our maiden 2022 drilling program establishing numerous thick, high-grade gold intercepts and developing a better understanding of the structure and mineralization within the Kobada Shear. Our technical team has designed this next drilling program to rapidly expand the area of gold mineralization at the Niaouleni South target through step-outs to both the north and south.”

The Niaouleni Project is 17,200 hectares in size and includes extensive artisanal mining activity within the interpreted extensions of gold-bearing structures.

Sylla Gold’s maiden drilling program was completed between April and July 2022. It included 57 reverse circulation (RC) drill holes (7,305 m) and 212 air core (AC) drill holes (10,600 m) completed along several drill fences. These drill holes targeted the Niaouleni South, Lebre Plateau and Kankou Moussa prospects along the Kobada Shear and the Gouingouindougou target located on the Gosso Shear. These targets were all previously defined by termite mound and soil geochemistry results. Significant assay highlights from the 2022 drilling program include 5.17 g/t Au over 25 m from drill hole NSRC22-018 and 2.13 g/t Au over 25 m from drill hole NSRC22-027

Sylla Gold Corp. (TSXV: SYG) is a Canadian gold exploration company focused on the exploration and acquisition of gold properties in West Africa adjacent to known gold deposits.

Sylla Gold Corp. (SYG) opened trading at C$0.10.
