Although an early-stage exploration project, Issia is located in a prolific geological gold province with key similarities to adjacent, well-defined gold deposits.
That includes the 3.02Moz Abujar Project, run by ASX-listed Tietto Minerals, which is located 50km to the north-east along the same regional shear structure.
The Issia project features existing extensive geochemical gold anomalies to 853ppb Au, which Haranga Resources intends validating to confirm the continuity of geochemical anomalies for drill testing. There has been no previous exploration drilling on the Issia Project area, however there is evidence of artisanal gold workings. The Company is targeting commencement of a RAB drilling program at Issia in early 2022.
Cote d’Ivoire is recognised as a largely underexplored and underdeveloped gold province with more of the highly gold-endowed Birimian greenstone belts than other West African countries. With strong government support for development of the country’s mining industry, good infrastructure and a number of multinational miners working in the region, Haranga Resources sees solid potential for success.
