Guskin Gold Begins Ground Geophysical Surveys on the Kukuom Gold Project in Ghana, Africa
SAN JOSE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 15, 2022 / Guskin Gold Corp (OTCQB:GKIN) (“Guskin Gold” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce the initiation of the 2022 ground geophysical work program on the Company’s Kukuom Gold Project in the Sefwi-Bibiani Gold Belt, Ghana, Africa.
The Company contracted Terranet Limited to carry out an Induced Polarization (IP) and a Ground Magnetic Surveys over the Kukuom’s “Open Pit” prospect.
Both ground surveys follow up on the highly favourable airborne geophysical target at the “Open Pit” area that the Company previously announced on March 7, 2022 when the Company completed an interpretation of the airborne geophysics survey coincident with high-grade grab and chip samples.
The report identified six (6) high-priority target anomalies; the most promising covering the “Open Pit” is a 2,000meter long magnetic anomaly directly overlain and correlating to the previously announced high-grade rock samples, which tested up to 46.6 g/t gold in the area known as the “Open Pit”.
Terranet Limited is based in Accra, Ghana and will be conducting the survey over the Kukuom “Open Pit” prospect. The field crew, will be starting the survey mid-August which covers an estimated area of 1.6 sq. kms, with approx. 16.8-line kms of IP, employing the pole-dipole array with a dipole spacing of 25-meter using 8 dipoles. The Ground Magnetics survey will cover approx. 40-line kms. The survey is scheduled to take approximately 6 weeks to complete, followed by analysis and interpretation of the resulting data.
For the past years Terranet has been involved with acquiring, processing, interpreting, and evaluating a wide range of airborne and ground geophysical data throughout Ghana and West Africa, using this information for exploration purposes as well as in the preparation of large- and small-scale maps, from data capture (digitizing), structuring, through to integration of processing and interpretation.
The IP/resistivity and magnetic surveys will be carried out across the area of the “Open Pit”, extending East and West of the favourable contact zones of the metasedimentary and metavolcanic units that hosts gold-quartz vein systems. The intent of extensions beyond the contact zone is to allow for deep penetration of the substrata, up to 400 metre subsurface, and identify any buried mineralization beneath the current 17-hole, 150-metre proposed drill depth planned for later this season.
Mr. Francis Lovebridge Agezo, Guskin Gold’s Director of Exploration, states “The proposed exploration program is designed to give us a better understanding of the subsurface gold mineralization. The purpose of the geophysics is to fingerprint and characterize zones of gold-bearing veins of suitable size to allow for their possible mining. We believe numerous zones may be identified and that could provide sufficient material for mining operations to begin, and hopefully continue for many years to come.”
“A successful outcome will allow us geologic confidence to define high-priority targets for the upcoming drill program and our work towards producing a mineral resource recognized by international reporting standards such as the Canadian NI 43-101 or Australian JORC (2012).” Mrs. Naana Asante, Guskin Gold’s CEO, Director and Chairwoman, affirms. “We look forward to continuing to release timely updates to our JV partners, suppliers, government, and shareholders, keeping everyone informed as we develop, improve, and expand operations in Ghana.”
The Kukuom Gold ProjectSignificance
Located in Asunafo South District, Ahafo Region, and is a Joint Venture Partnership with Danampco Company whereby Guskin Gold has an exclusive seventy (70%) percent interest (see Company press release dated February 1st, 2021).
The license area is 156 square kilometers and the Kukuom Gold Project is highly prospective, spatially related to major mines including Newmont’s Ahafo Gold Mine (23Moz) located approximately 30km north of the Kukuom property, and Asante Gold’s Chirano Gold Mine (5Moz) located approximately 45km south-southeast of Kukuom and their Bibiani Gold Mine (7Moz) located approximately 25km southeast.
Francis Lovebridge Agezo, Guskin Gold’s Director of Exploration is credited as a contributor to the discovery and development of the Chirano Mine deposits. Notably on April 25th, 2022, Kinross Gold Corp. (KGC) announced the sale of the Chirano Gold Mine for $225 Million to Canadian Asante Gold (ASE); Asante having previously acquired the Bibiani Gold Mine for $90 Million from Australian Resolute Mining (RSG) in August 2021.
