Bouroubourou Data

Bouroubourou Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    The Bouroubourou exploration permit 10332 (Bouroubourou Permit) isheld by AfriGem SL (Afrigem). Pursuant to the terms of a joint venture agreement with AfriGem, Erin holds an 80% interest in the Bouroubourou Permit and is required to sole fund all exploration expenditure until completion of a bankable feasibility study. The Bouroubourou Permit covers an area of approximately 121 km2 and is located approximately 16 kilometres northeast of the Sabodala Gold Mine. Erin has completed regional geological and regolith mapping together with regional soil sampling on an 800 metre by 800 metre grid. Infill soil sampling on a spacing of 120 metres by 40 metres commenced late in 2011 and is continuing over anomalous areas identified in the regional soil sampling programme (red zones). To date two splay structures, the northern hosting extensive artisanal gold workings, have been identified to the east of the tenement. The workings are within sub-vertical quartz vein sets, central to the shear zones. The two lines of artisanal gold workings extend over 500 metres and 300 metres, and occur along a structure which is interpreted to be within the extension of the structural zone which hosts the Sabodala Mine to the south of the permit. Based upon the results of the work completed and geological observations in the field, the gold mineralisation is interpreted to be associated with two northeast trending shear zones which form as splays from the regional structural trend. The first and second-order shear zones/fault-splays to the regional shear zones provide favourable structural settings for gold mineralisation. The mineralised zones currently have a strike potential of around 3 kilometres each and present targets for immediate follow up leading to drill evaluation.
