Drilling Identifies Indirect Mineralised Development in North of Tankoro Deposit
PERTH, AUSTRALIA and VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 16, 2023 / Sarama Sources Ltd. (“Sarama” or the “Firm“) (ASX:SRR) (TSXV:SWA) is happy to announce that exploration drilling at its 100%-owned (4) , multi-million-ounce Sanutura Undertaking (the “ Undertaking “) has found a brand new mineralised development extending for 700m within the north of the Tankoro Mineralised Hall.
The reported drilling totals roughly 2,000m and was primarily focussed on testing for new mineralisation throughout the Phantom, Phantom East and Phantom West Prospects, that are positioned within the north of the Tankoro Deposit (refer Determine 1). The outcomes signify the seventh discovery of extra and extensional mineralisation because the graduation of the Firm’s ongoing +50,000m drill program and proceed to reveal the robust potential to develop the oxide element of the Undertaking’s 0.6Moz Au (Indicated) plus 2.3Moz Au (Inferred)(1) mining form constrained Mineral Useful resource.
Sarama’s President, CEO & MD, Andrew Dinning commented:
“We’re excited that new, near-surface discoveries proceed to be made all through the Tankoro Mineralised Hall with the newest outcomes representing the seventh successive space the place new mineralisation has been intersected exterior the Mineral Useful resource. This bodes nicely for the numerous different targets which were recognized and are but to be drilled and continues to assist our view that vital exploration potential stays. The identification of latest cross-linking mineralisation is anticipated so as to add to the present Mineral Useful resource which we plan to replace after the completion and observe up of the present +50,000m program, a majority of which is value efficient aircore drilling.”

A Progress-Oriented Drill Program in Oxide Materials
Drilling Identifies New Indirect Mineralised Development over 700m Strike Size and Stays Open
Outcomes are being reported (refer Appendix A) for roughly 2,000m (43 holes) of aircore (“ AC “) drilling undertaken in Q2/Q3 2022 on the Phantom, Phantom West and Phantom East Prospects within the northern extent of the Tankoro Mineralised Hall (refer Figures 1 & 2). The drilling focused the near-surface oxide horizon to a vertical depth of roughly 50m and highlighted downhole intersections from these holes embody:

Phantom and Phantom West Prospects
The brand new drilling within the Phantom and Phantom West Prospects primarily focused areas with potential for discovery of extra mineralisation and/or extensions to current mineralised lodes. These prospects are positioned to the north of the Tankoro Deposit and historic drilling has been comparatively constrained, focussing on the delineation and extension of the dominant north-north-east (“ NNE “) oriented tendencies of steeply dipping lode packages which lengthen over a strike size as much as 2.5km (refer Determine 2). A lateral distance of roughly 360m separates the 2 tendencies and historic soil geochemical surveys have returned elevated gold-in-soil values in between, suggesting potential for obliquely oriented mineralisation to hyperlink the 2 primary mineralised tendencies. This cross-linking sort of mineralisation has been delineated extensively within the higher drilled components of the Tankoro Deposit and provides considerably to the financial potential for the Undertaking.
Earlier reconnaissance drilling alongside the focused development within the Phantom Prospect returned encouraging outcomes and included downhole intersections of 6m @ 3.33g/t Au , 6m @ 3.85g/t Au and 6m @ 1.40g/t Au . The latest drilling reported on this information launch adopted up on these remoted intersections and stepped out alongside the projected development of the elevated gold-in-soil values and returned outcomes together with 6m @ 2.91g/t Au (incl. 1m @ 12.10g/t Au), 6m @ 1.40g/t Au and 2m @ 6.70g/t Au (incl. 1m @ 11.75g/t Au) which assist the interpretation of a new mineralised development extending for roughly 700m alongside strike (refer Determine 3).
Determine 3 – New Indirect Mineralised Development Found with Upside Potential – Phantom Prospect
The mineralisation stays open in all instructions and importantly, potential exists for it to be prolonged additional to the south-west the place it might intersect the principle mineralised development within the Phantom West Prospect. This speculation is supported by the elevated gold-in-soil values and would carry the full size of this indirect mineralisation to roughly 1.2km. The intersection areas of lodes of various orientations throughout the Tankoro Deposit is understood to supply enrichment of mineralisation, by way of quantity and grade. On this respect, latest drilling within the projected intersection zone within the Phantom West Prospect has confirmed the presence of upper grades and localised thickening of the mineralisation with downhole intersections of 10m @ 5.25g/t Au (beforehand reported), 9m @ 2.14g/t Au and 13m @ 1.79g/t Au (incl. 2m @ 8.88g/t Au) being returned.
Additional higher-grade zones are current alongside strike within the present Mineral Useful resource of the Phantom West Prospect which can be related to extra situations of cross-linking mineralisation. A lately returned downhole intersection of 20m @ 1.68g/t Au (ending in mineralisation) returned thicker than anticipated mineralisation and likewise resulted in mineralisation (Figures 3 and 4). This enhances the present interpretation but in addition provides a near-field goal for follow-up within the zone, which additionally comprises historic intersections of 10m @ 3.39g/t Au , 12m @ 2.25g/t Au and 6m @ 2.75g/t Au .
Determine 4 – Drilling in Excessive-Grade Zone Exceeds Thickness Expectations – Phantom West Prospect (Part A-A’)
Phantom East Prospect
The drill program included two 50m-long holes on the Phantom East Prospect to follow-up beforehand reported, near-surface intersections of 4m @ 2.63g/t Au and 3m @ 2.60g/t Au (refer Determine 5). These downhole intersections are very near the present Mineral Useful resource however weren’t integrated resulting from lack of supporting knowledge. The brand new drilling stepped-out to the south, concentrating on intersections to assist the interpretation of mineralisation over a 50-60m strike size. Just lately returned downhole intersections of 4m @ 1.61g/t Au , 2m @ 1.09g/t Au and 2m @ 0.93g/t Au throughout the identical gap probably recommend the presence of a package deal of three parallel mineralised lodes hanging NNE, linking up with the unmodelled intersections roughly 50m to the north.
Mineralisation on the Phantom East Prospect is mostly high-grade and consists of a number of comparatively short-scale lodes of differing strike orientations and dips. A number of targets with potential to increase the strike of the present Mineral Useful resource stay, that are deliberate to be pursued in upcoming drill packages.

Exploration in Tankoro Mineralised Hall Set to Proceed in 2023
The reported outcomes inside group of Phantom Prospects are extremely encouraging and spotlight the potential for progress with additional exploration drilling throughout the Tankoro Mineralised Hall. This system has additionally efficiently recognized potential strike extensions to presently modelled lodes in near-surface oxide materials which have the potential to add to the Mineral Useful resource .
Drilling is presently paused and with all assays from the Q2/Q3 2022 program now returned, the Firm is presently compiling outcomes and incorporating these in its planning for additional drilling of its highest precedence targets across the Mineral Useful resource at each the Tankoro and Bondi Deposits which comprise the Sanutura Undertaking. Numerous regional exploration targets may even be examined within the upcoming packages.
