Savary Outlines Exploration Plan for South Hounde, Burkina Faso
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 1, 2012) - SAVARY GOLD CORP. ("Savary" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SCA) is pleased to announce the details of its proposed $1.4 million exploration program for its Hounde South property, located in southwestern Burkina Faso. The exploration program will include up to 3,000 metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling, as well as geologic mapping of the property.
"We are excited to begin our exploration program at Hounde South," stated Charles Mostert, Savary Gold's President and CEO. "The coincident geophysical and geochemical anomalies, along with the encouraging results from the very limited early drilling, are strong indications of the property's potential. This, coupled with the property's location within the Hounde greenstone belt, which hosts Semafo's Mana gold mine as well as a number of other advanced gold exploration projects, is what led us to pursue this acquisition and we are looking forward to advancing this project as quickly as possible."
Coincident Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical and soil geochemistry anomalies, as well as historical drilling data and local prospector workings have identified two primary targets along the Ouango-Fini Shear Zone: the Kueredougou Zone and the Diosso South Zone. Proposed exploration activities for the Kueredougou Zone include approximately 2,000 metres of RC drilling, with 15 to 20 drill holes ranging in depth from 100 to 150 metres. A total of approximately 1,000 metres of RC drilling is planned for the Diosso South Zone, which will include 10 holes, each drilled to a depth of up to 100 metres. These 3,000 metres of drilling will be aimed at building a robust geologic model, as well as acquiring sufficient data to complete an inferred mineral resource estimate.
The Hounde South property consists of two exploration licences, Diosso and Mandiasso, totaling 375 square kilometres and two exploration licence applications, Kelesso and Fakoro, totaling 125 square kilometres.
