The Buckreef Main deposit consists of shear zone hosted mineralization associated with auriferous-quartz-carbonate-pyrite assemblages. The shear structure is steeply dipping and is emplaced along mafic basaltic sequences and dolerite intrusive rock.At Tembo, Reverse Circulation (RC) holes TMRC113 to TMRC115 were designed to investigate the lateral extension of known Tembo mineralization to the east and a splay zone that trends to the northeast. Similar to Buckreef Main, Tembo mineralization is structurally controlled and is hosted in a sub-vertical shear zone emplaced along a mafic basaltic sequence. The mineralization is confined along an E-W trending shear structure and a newly discovered northeast trending splay. The Buckreef Project consists of four prospects, namely the dormant historic Buckreef Gold Mine at the western limit of the project area, the Tembo and Bingwa prospects, and the Buziba prospect 20km to the east. The Company has been conducting resource definition exploration drilling in the immediate vicinity of the Buckreef Main deposit where at least three additional prospective shears named the Eastern Porphyry, Buckreef Footwall and Buckreef Hanging-wall were identified based on previously unpublished historical drilling results by Gallery Gold and IAMGOLD. Buckreef is an advanced stage gold project with National Instrument 43-101 compliant gold resources at a 0.5g/t cutoff grade in the following categories: Measured, 5.176 million tonnes grading 2.05 g/t (341,000 oz); Indicated, 24.97 million tonnes averaging 1.19 g/t (954,000 oz); Inferred, 17.173 million tonnes grading 1.51 g/t (835,000 oz). Almost 61% of these resources are currently in the Measured and Indicated categories; and based on the recent exploration successes infill drilling is expected to significantly improve this already favorable resource ratio. The majority of the resources are oxide and non-refractory and are amenable to conventional, off-the-shelf mineral processing techniques. Analysis Samples from RC and diamond drill-holes were submitted to the SGS Lab in Mwanza for 50g fire assay (FA) with AAS finish (0.01ppm LLD). Duplicates and Standards were inserted in the sample stream approximately every 20 samples. The average percentage of recovery core is 95%. The planning, execution and monitoring of quality control programs at the Buckreef Gold project are under the supervision of Anthony Minde, the Company’s principal geologist. Mr. Minde has over 20 years experience on the Buckreef Project.
