West African commences drilling at M3 gold discovery

  • Diamond drilling commences at M3 prospect

  • Drilling to follow up successful RC drilling program

  • New gold mineralisation to be included in updated resource upgrade in Q4 2015

    Gold developer West African Resources Limited (ASX, TSXV: WAF) is pleased to report that it has recommenced drilling following the recent high-grade gold discovery at its M3 prospect, Tanlouka Gold Project, Burkina Faso.

    Follow-up Diamond drilling has commenced at M3. Initial results from the prospect were announced last month from shallow wide-spaced RC drilling (ASX/TSXV: 8/9/2015). RC holes TAC0995 and TAC0996 were drilled directly beneath a 13g/t Au auger sample with TAC0995 ending in mineralisation grading 6m at 1.88g/t Au from 40m while TAC0996 intercepted the same zone down-dip returning 32m at 5.02g/t Au including 13m at 7.14g/t Au from 2m.

    Initially Diamond drilling will focus on providing structural data relating to the orientation of mineralisation, as well as important information on lithology and alteration. Follow-up RC drilling will also target mineralisation recently drilled at the M1 prospect (ASX/TSXV: 14/7/15, 25/8/15). The Company intends to continue drilling throughout the current field season, targeting an increase to the projects mineral resources.

    Recently discovered gold mineralisation at the M1 and M3 prospects is currently not included in the project resource inventory. Significant results from the current drilling program will be modelled and incorporated in a resource update later this year. Any additional higher grade oxide tonnes will have a positive impact on the project economics. Recent results from RC drilling targeting oxide mineralisation at M1 and M3 include:

    • TAC0657: 8m at 1.45g/t Au from 25m, ending in mineralisation

    • TAC0658: 6m at 1.32g/t Au from 21m, ending in mineralisation

    • TAC0856: 10m at 1.04g/t Au including 1m at 5.04g/t Au from surface

    • TAC0887: 10m at 1.44g/t Au from 8m, including 2m at 4.92g/t Au ending in mineralisation

    • TAC0891: 9m at 7.8g/t Au from 8m, including 4m at 16.93g/t Au ending in mineralisation

    • TAC0995: 6m at 1.88g/t Au from 40m ending in mineralisation

    • TAC0996: 32m at 5.02g/t Au including 13m at 7.14g/t Au from 2m

Cautionary Note:

Mineral Resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resource estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. These mineral resource estimates include inferred mineral resources that are normally considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is also no certainty that these inferred mineral resources will be converted to measured and indicated categories through further drilling, or into mineral reserves, once economic considerations are applied.

Production targets for the proposed heap leach starter project referred to in this announcement were first released to the ASX and TSXV on 23 February 2015. They are preliminary and there is no certainty that the production targets, or the forecast financial information derived from the production targets, will be realised. All material assumptions underpinning production targets or forecast financial information derived from production targets continue to apply and have not materially changed.

Section 1: Sampling Techniques and Data


JORC Code Explanation


Sampling Technique

Nature and quality of sampling (e.g. cut channels, random chips, or specific specialised industry standard measurement tools appropriate to the minerals under investigation, such as downhole gamma sondes, or handheld XRF instruments, etc.). These examples should not be taken as limiting the broad meaning of sampling

Include reference to measures taken to ensure sample representivity and the appropriate calibration of any measurement tools or systems used. Aspects of the determination of mineralisation that are Material to the Public Report.

In cases where 'industry standard' work has been done this would be relatively simple (e.g. 'reverse circulation drilling was used to obtain 1 m samples from which 3 kg was pulverised to produce a 30 g charge for fire assay'). In other cases more explanation may be required, such as where there is coarse gold that has inherent sampling problems. Unusual commodities or mineralisation types (e.g. submarine nodules) may warrant disclosure of detailed information.

The Mankarga area is being drilled using Diamond Core Drilling (DD) and Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling. The drill spacing is being in-filled to a nominal 100m x 20m grid spacing. A total program of 8000m is proposed. Holes are angled towards 045° or 225°magnetic at M3 and 120° where possible at M5 at declinations of -50°, to optimally intersect mineralised zones. All RC samples were weighed to determine recoveries. All potentially mineralised zones were then split and sampled at 1m intervals using three-tier riffle splitters. QA/QC procedures were completed as per industry best practice standards (certified blanks and standards and duplicate sampling).

Samples were despatched to BIGS in Ouagadougou for sample preparation, where they were crushed, dried and pulverised to produce a sub sample for analysis. BIGS has a fire assay facility in Ouagadougou where 50g fire assays, AAS finishes and screen fire assays have been conducted. Historic sampling preparation and assaying was completed at Abilabs and SGS laboratories located in Ouagadougou. Historic samples we analysed by Fire Assay method with AAS finish.


Drill type (e.g. core, reverse circulation, open- hole hammer, rotary air blast, auger, Bangka, sonic, etc.) and details (e.g. core diameter, triple or standard tube, depth of Diamond tails, face- sampling bit or other type, whether core is oriented and if so, by what method, etc.).

Reverse Circulation 'RC' drilling within the resource area comprises 4.5 inch diameter face sampling hammer and aircore blade drilling and hole depths range from 13m to 60m. Diamond drilling in progress comprises both NQ and HQ diameter core, at holes between 75m and 350m depth.

Drill Sample Recovery

Method of recording and assessing core and chip sample recoveries and results assessed.

Measures taken to maximise sample recovery and ensure representative nature of the samples.

Whether a relationship exists between sample recovery and grade and whether sample bias may have occurred due to preferential loss/gain of fine/coarse material.

RC recoveries are logged and recorded in the database. Overall recoveries are >75% for the RC; there are no significant sample recovery problems. A technician is always present at the rig to monitor and record recovery.

RC samples were visually checked for recovery, moisture and contamination.

The bulk of the Resource is defined by DD and RC drilling, which have high sample recoveries. The style of mineralisation, with common higher-grades, require large diameter core and good recoveries to evaluate the deposit adequately. The consistency of the mineralised intervals and density of drilling is considered to prevent any sample bias issues due to material loss or gain.


Whether core and chip samples have been geologically and geotechnical logged to a level of detail to support appropriate Mineral Resource estimation, mining studies and metallurgical studies.

Whether logging is qualitative or quantitative in nature. Core (or costean/Trench, channel, etc.) photography. The total length and percentage of the relevant intersections logged.

Geotechnical logging was carried out on all Diamond drill holes for recovery, RQD and number of defects (per interval). Information on structure type, dip, dip direction, alpha angle, beta angle, texture, shape, roughness and fill material is stored in the structure/Geotech table of the database.

Logging of Diamond core and RC samples recorded lithology, mineralogy, mineralisation, structural (DDH only), weathering, alteration, colour and other features of the samples. Core was photographed in both dry and wet form. All drilling has been logged to standard that is appropriate for the category of Resource which is being reported.

Sub-Sampling Technique and Sample Preparation

If core, whether cut or sawn and whether quarter, half or all core taken. If non-core, whether riffled, tube sampled, rotary split, etc. and whether sampled wet or dry.

For all sample types, the nature, quality and appropriateness of the sample preparation technique. Quality control procedures adopted for all sub- sampling stages to maximise representivity of samples. Measures taken to ensure that the sampling is representative of the in situ material collected, including for instance results for field duplicate/second-half sampling.

Whether sample sizes are appropriate to the grain size of the material being sampled.

RC samples were collected on the rig using a three tier riffle splitter. All samples were dry.

The sample preparation for all samples follows industry best practice. BIGS in Ouagadougou for sample preparation, where they were crushed, dried and pulverised to produce a sub sample for analysis. Sample preparation involving oven drying, coarse crushing, followed by total pulverisation LM2 grinding mills to a grind size of 90% passing 75 microns.

Field QC procedures involve the use of certified reference material as assay standards, blanks, and duplicates for the RC samples only. The insertion rate of these averaged 3:20 for RC.

Field duplicates were taken on for both 1m RC splits using a riffle splitter. The sample sizes are considered to be appropriate to correctly represent the style of mineralisation, the thickness and consistency of the intersections.

Quality of Assay Data and Laboratory Tests

The nature, quality and appropriateness of the assaying and laboratory procedures used and whether the technique is considered partial or total.

For geophysical tools, spectrometers, handheld XRF instruments, etc., the parameters used in determining the analysis including instrument make and model, reading times, calibrations factors applied and their derivation, etc.

Nature of quality control procedures adopted (e.g. standards, blanks, duplicates, external laboratory checks) and whether acceptable levels of accuracy (i.e. lack of bias) and precision have been established.

The laboratory used an aqua regia digest followed by fire assay for with an AAS finish for gold analysis.

No geophysical tools were used to determine any element concentrations used in this Resource Estimate.

Sample preparation checks for fineness were carried out by the laboratory as part of their internal procedures to ensure the grind size of 90% passing 75 micron was being attained. Laboratory QA/QC involves the use of internal lab standards using certified reference material, blanks, splits and duplicates as part of the in house procedures.

Certified reference materials, having a good range of values, were inserted blindly and randomly. Results highlight that sample assay values are accurate and that contamination has been contained.

Repeat or duplicate analysis for samples shows that the precision of samples is within acceptable limits.

Sample preparation conducted and fire assay performed by BIGS SARL -Assayed by 50g fire assay with AAS finish.

QA/QC protocol: For Diamond core one blank and one standard inserted for every 18 core samples (2 QA/QC samples within every 20 samples dispatched, or 1 QA/QC sample per 10 samples despatched) and no duplicates. QA/QC protocol: For RC samples we insert one blank, one standard and one duplicate for every 17 samples (3 QA/QC within every 20 samples or 1 every

8.5 samples).

Verification of Sampling and Assaying

The verification of significant intersections by either independent or alternative company personnel.

The use of twinned holes The verification of significant intersections by either independent or alternative company personnel.

Discuss any adjustment to assay data

WAF's QP R. Hyde has verified significant intersections in Diamond core and RC drilling.

Primary data was collected using a set of company standard ExcelTM templates on ToughbookTM laptop computers using lookup codes. The information was validated on-site by the Company's database technicians and then merged and validated into a final Access TM database by the company's database manager.

Location of Data points

Accuracy and quality of surveys used to locate drill holes (collar and down-hole surveys), trenches, mine workings and other locations used in Mineral Resource estimation.

Specification of the grid system used Quality and adequacy of topographic control

All drill holes have been located by DGPS in UTM grid WGS84 Z30N.

Down-hole surveys were completed at the end of every hole where possible using a Reflex down-hole survey tool, taking measurements every.

DGPS was used for topographic control.

Data Spacing and Distribution

Data spacing for reporting of Exploration Results Whether the data spacing and distribution is sufficient to establish the degree of geological and grade continuity appropriate for the Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve estimation procedure(s) and classifications applied.

Whether sample compositing has been applied

The nominal drill hole spacing is 20m (northwest) by 100m (northeast).

The mineralised domains have demonstrated sufficient continuity in both geological and grade to support the definition of Mineral Resource and Reserves, and the classifications applied under the 2012 JORC Code.

Historic samples have been composited to three metre lengths, and adjusted where necessary to ensure that no residual sample lengths have been excluded (best fit). WAF intends to update the Mankarga 5 Resource following the current work programs, in the first quarter of 2014.

Orientation of Data in Relation to Geological Structure

Whether the orientation of sampling achieves unbiased sampling of possible structures and the extent to which this is known, considering the deposit type.

If the relationship between the drilling orientation and the orientation of key mineralised structures is considered to have introduced a sampling bias, this should be assessed and reported if material.

The majority of the data is drilled to either magnetic 120° or 300° orientations, which is orthogonal/perpendicular to the orientation of the mineralised trend. The bulk of the drilling is almost perpendicular to the mineralised domains.

Structural logging based on oriented core indicates that the main mineralisation controls are largely perpendicular to drill direction.

No orientation based sampling bias has been identified in the data at this point.

Sample Security

The measures taken to ensure sample security

Chain of custody is managed by WAF. Samples are stored on site and delivered by WAF personnel to BIGS Ouagadougou for sample preparation. Whilst in storage, they are kept under guard in a locked yard. Tracking sheets are used track the progress of batches of samples

Audits or reviews

The results of any audits or reviews of sampling techniques and data.

WAF personnel and consultants have completed numerous site visits and data reviews since acquiring the project in 2014. No material issues were noted. A technical report located on WAF's website.

Section 2 Reporting of Exploration Results


JORC Code Explanation


Mineral Tenement and Land Tenure Status

Type, reference name/number, location and ownership including agreements or material issues with third parties such as joint ventures, partnerships, overriding royalties, native title interests, historical sites, wilderness or national park and environmental settings.

The security of the tenure held at the time of reporting along with any known impediments to obtaining a licence to operate in the area.

The Boulsa Project tenements covers over 3,700km2, granting the holders the right to explore for gold.

The tenements have been acquired by either direct grant to WAF or its subsidiaries or by contractual agreements with tenement holders. Apart from the Tanlouka Agreement where Tanlouka SARL holds a 90% interest, all other vendor agreements provide WAF with the right to obtain an ultimate interest of 100%.

All licences, permits and claims are granted for gold. All fees have been paid, and the permits are valid and up to date with the Burkinabe authorities.

The payment of gross production royalties are provided for by the Mining Code and the amount of royalty to be paid for ranges from 3% ($1300).

Exploration Done by Other Parties

Acknowledgment and appraisal of exploration by other parties.

Very little exploration has been carried out over greater project the tenement prior to WAF's involvement which commenced in 2008, with the exception of the Tanlouka Permit. The area comprising the Tanlouka Permit has been held by Channel Resources Ltd since the early 1990's. Work recommenced in earnest on the Tanlouka Permit in 2010. WAF acquired Channel Resources Ltd on January 17th 2014. Available historic records and data were reviewed by both WAF during Due Diligence prior to the acquisition.


Deposit type, geological setting and style of mineralisation.

The Boulsa Project straddles some 70km strike length of the Manga-Sebba greenstone belt, which bifurcates and trends northeast and east-northeast respectively from southern- central Burkina Faso into Niger over some 450km. The south- eastern portion of the project area covers the southern extension of the Fada N'Gourma Belt.

Lithologies comprise volcano-plutonic bodies including amphibolised basalts with amphiboloschists, andesites and basalts, rhyolites and rhyodacites, brecciated tuffs, and gabbroic bodies including pyroxenite and serpentinite. Gold mineralisation in the project area is mesothermal orogenic in origin and structurally controlled. The project also contains shear hosted porphyry related copper-gold-molybdenum mineralisation on the Sartenga Permit which is believed to be unique in West Africa.'

Drill hole Information

A summary of all information material to the understanding of the exploration results including a tabulation of the following information for all Material drill holes:

  • easting and northing of the drill hole collar o elevation or RL (Reduced Level - elevation above sea level in metres) of the drill hole

  • dip and azimuth of the hole

  • down hole length and interception depth

  • hole length.


If the exclusion of this information is justified on the basis that the information is not Material and this exclusion does not detract from the understanding of the report, the Competent Person should clearly explain why this is the case.

Intercepts that form the basis of this announcement are tabulated in Table 1 in the body of the announcement and incorporate Hole ID, Easting, Northing, Dip, Azimuth, Depth and Assay data for mineralised intervals. Appropriate maps and plans also accompany this announcement.

Data aggregation methods

In reporting Exploration Results, weighting averaging techniques, maximum and/or minimum grade truncations (e.g. cutting of high grades) and cut-off grades are usually Material and should be stated.

Where aggregate intercepts incorporate short lengths of high grade results and longer lengths of low grade results, the procedure used for such aggregation should be stated and some typical examples of such aggregations should be shown in detail.

The assumptions used for any reporting of metal equivalent values should be clearly stated.

All intersections are assayed on one meter intervals No top cuts have been applied to exploration results. Mineralised intervals are reported with a maximum of 2m of internal dilution of less than 0.2g/t Au. Higher grade zones are reported with a maximum of internal dilution of less than 2g/t Au of internal dilution. Mineralised intervals are reported on a weighted average basis.

Relationship between mineralisation widths and intercept lengths

These relationships are particularly important in the reporting of Exploration Results.

If the geometry of the mineralisation with respect to the drill hole angle is known, its nature should be reported.

If it is not known and only the down hole lengths are reported, there should be a clear statement to this effect (e.g. 'down hole length, true width not known').

The orientation of the mineralised zone has been established and the majority of the drilling was planned in such a way as to intersect mineralisation in a perpendicular manner.

However, due to topographic limitations some holes were drilled from less than ideal orientations.


Appropriate maps and sections (with scales) and tabulations of intercepts should be included for any significant discovery being reported These should include, but not be limited to a plan view of drill hole collar locations and appropriate sectional views.

The appropriate plans and sections have been included in the body of this document. Other figures are located in the respective announcements reported on 14/7/15, 25/8/15 and 8/9/15.

Balanced reporting

Where comprehensive reporting of all Exploration Results is not practicable, representative reporting of both low and high grades and/or widths should be practiced to avoid misleading reporting of Exploration Results.

All grades, high and low, are reported accurately with 'from' and 'to' depths and 'hole identification' shown.

Other substantive exploration data

Other exploration data, if meaningful and material, should be reported including (but not limited to): geological observations; geophysical survey results; geochemical survey results; bulk samples - size and method of treatment; metallurgical test results; bulk density, groundwater, geotechnical and rock characteristics; potential deleterious or contaminating substances.

Preliminary metallurgical test work has been completed, with excellent results. Gold recoveries exceed 95% from oxide bottle roll tests, exceed 92% for sulphide bottle roll tests and a significant proportion of the gold is recoverable by gravity concentration. Additional metallurgical test work is planned.

Further work

The nature and scale of planned further work (e.g. tests for lateral extensions or depth extensions or large-scale step-out drilling).

Diagrams clearly highlighting the areas of possible extensions, including the main geological interpretations and future drilling areas, provided this information is not commercially sensitive.

Further infill drilling is planned and is ongoing, aimed at increasing the amount of resource categorized as Indicated, as well as upgrading some of the Indicated Resource to Measured status. Drilling aimed at increasing the Resource below the current depth extent is also planned. A figure showing proposed work programs is included in the body of this report.
