Lefa Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    Lefa gold mine operates a typical modern open pit operation with drilling and blasting followed by load and haul allowing for selective mining of the ore. The three major mining areas are the Fayalala, Lero-Karta and Kankarta pits. The Fayalala and Lero-Karta pits are approximately 8km apart and will be mined over the entire life of the project. Several smaller, higher grade satellite pits will provide supplementary feed for the mill over the life of the project.

    - 114 Infill samples taken on existing diamond core has resulted in further broad high grade oxide mineralisation being intersected near surface (less than 50m depth from natural surface), including 6m @ 2.65g/t Au from 12m and 6m @ 4.85g/t Au from 34m in drill hole MDD008.

    - 68% of samples (77 out of 114 samples tested) taken returned in-excess of 0.4 g/t Au (proposed heap leach economic ore grade).

    - Of the mineralised 77 samples which exceed the proposed ore grade of 0.4g/t Au, the average grade is 1.17g/t Au which also exceeded expectation pointing toward grade upside.

    - Infill sampling upon the Mansounia diamond core is 32% complete with results confirming the continuity of mineralisation near surface and indicating a potential for an upgrade in near surface resources.
