Goldstone Resources strikes gold in first round of drilling in Gabon

GoldStone Resources, the AIM-listed company focused on gold exploration in West and Central Africa, has published the first drill results for its Oyem Project in Gabon.

GoldStone Resources, the AIM-listed company focused on gold exploration in West and Central Africa, has published the first drill results for its Oyem Project in Gabon.

The company revealed that gold had been identified in first round of drilling and initial interpretation suggested that the first hole intersected a 120m wide deformational zone containing high grade primary gold mineralisation.

Exploration Director Dr. Hendrik Schloemann commented: "These first results confirm our expectation of significant mineralisation at Oyem. Assay results have been received from only two holes of the nine hole program. From the initial interpretation we have been able to identify a 120m wide deformational zone that appears to control the mineralisation.

"We are especially pleased that the first hole into this 120m wide deformational zone has yielded meaningful grades and are optimistic that similar results can be achieved in the holes currently being assayed."

Results from the remaining seven holes are expected early in the New Year.
