Oriole intersects good grades at Bibemi

AIM listed Oriole Resources has intersected good grades and width at its 90%-owned Bibemi gold project in Cameroon.

Phase 2 of Oriole’s drilling programme focussed on the Bakassi Zone 1 prospect. Results continue to confirm continuity of surface mineralisation along strike and to a vertical depth of more than 100m below surface. The system remains open at depth.

The drilling results has delivered best mineralised intervals of 6.50m grading 3.92 grammes per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) including 1.00m grading 16.79 g/t Au, 5.20m grading 1.97 g/t Au and 2.25m grading 8.82 g/t Au including 1.00m grading 19.33 g/t Au.

According to Oriole Resources CEO Tim Livesey, Phase 3 drilling, which will test the width and strike extension of the widest (dilational) zones of veining identified in the Phase 2 core, is nearing completion for a planned 1350m in nine holes. “Results are anticipated in the first quarter of 2022,” says Livesey.

“The results from the second phase of drilling at Bibemi continue to support our targeting rationale, with good widths and grades being intersected around the southern Bakassi Zone 1 target lines. The continued drill success at Bibemi gives us great confidence in our understanding of the system and these positive results have allowed us to continue straight into Phase 3 of the drill testing programme,” adds Livesey
