New drilling program targets more ounces


ASX and Media Release


5 July 2007



􀂃 22,000 metres of exploration drilling scheduled for the next six months.

􀂃 Targeting highly prospective Anwia & Bokrobo deposits.

􀂃 Long-term agreement signed with drilling contractors to secure rigs.

􀂃 Pursing potential acquisition opportunities to add additional ounces.


Emerging gold producer Adamus Resources Limited (ASX: ADU - Adamus or the Company) has commenced an extensive drilling program on highly prospective targets at its Southern Ashanti Gold Project (SAGP) in Ghana, with a view to increasing its resource base within the next six months. Work has already commenced.


Following the recent release of the feasibility study, and whilst undergoing various permitting procedures Adamus is focused on further improving economics with the addition of further ounces to its projected mineable gold reserve.


Adamus Managing Director Mark Bojanjac said the extensive drilling program was underway, with 22,000 metres of drilling scheduled for the next six months.


“The feasibility study established that we have critical mass for the SAGP. Additional mineable reserves will substantially improve the future profitability of the Project,” Mr. Bojanjac said.


"It shows that every mineable ounce we now find will generate more than US$300 profit per ounce, at current gold prices".


“We have been highly encouraged by the prospectivity of our ground holding, particularly the depth potential at Anwia and the potential for further high-grade discoveries at Bokrobo. Having dedicated the bulk of our time and effort during the past twelve months to confirmatory drilling and other work necessary for the feasibility study, we are now firmly focused on accretive exploration.”


"Adamus is also pursing some potential acquisition opportunities that could also add ounces within trucking distance to the Salman deposit" Mr. Bojanjac said.



Diamond drilling at Anwia from November 2006 through April 2007 targeted and delivered extensions to open pit mineralization. The deposit has only been drilled to 140 metres depth. This is the first program to specifically target extensions deeper than that.


A new program of diamond drilling started in June. Ten holes, ranging in depth from 250 to 550 metres, will test target mineralization between 200 and 400 metres below surface. The program totals 800 metres in RC pre-collars and 2,500 metres of core drilling and should be completed by early August.



Assay results are currently coming in for samples from recent diamond drilling at Bokrobo prospect (Anwia South). Several holes intersected unexpected alteration, quartz veining and disseminated pyrite mineralization in a granitic dyke and adjacent metasediments to the west of the main Bokrobo lode. Results are expected shortly. Drilling to date has only been to approximately 100 metres depth.


Geological and structural interpretations are underway to guide further drilling.



Infill RC drilling at Akanko North is ongoing in a 5,000 metre program designed to define shallow gold resources over the 800 metres of strike that has previously only been scout drilled. We are currently drilling in wet weather.


Akanko North is presently only drilled on 200m spaced traverses and has not yet been included in resource estimates. This program is aimed at converting it to a mineable reserve.


Conversion to reserves

The total measured, indicated and inferred gold resource of the Salman and Anwia deposits (using a 1g/t lower cut grade) has increased to 1,600,000 ounces with over 73% now in the

Measured and Indicated category.


Some of the estimated resource has yet to be drilled to reserve status. The Company’s exploration and development activities will complete this drilling, to prove up additional mineable reserves.


Specific conversion activities for the next six months include:

􀂃 Conversion of inferred resources inside current pit designs to ore reserves.

􀂃 Calculation of open pit ore from the Bokrobo prospect at Anwia South.

􀂃 Modest depth extensions demonstrated by recent diamond

drilling at Anwia.


This work will bring additional ounces into reserve from known prospects in order to confirm a move from Base Case to

Expected Case.


Other targets identified after a target ranking exercise from SAGP tenements, to be drilled during the second half of 2007


􀂃 Akropon

􀂃 Avrebo

􀂃 Anwia North

􀂃 Bernard


Resource and reserve updates will be undertaken as information is collated from these drilling campaigns in the next six months.
