PR Newswire





VANCOUVER, BC, June 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Galiano Gold Inc. ("Galiano" or the "Company") (TSX: GAU) (NYSE American: GAU) (formerly Asanko Gold Inc.) is pleased to announce an update from its 2020 exploration program underway at the Asanko Gold Mine ("AGM"), located in Ghana, West Africa. The AGM is a 50:50 joint venture ("JV") with Gold Fields Ltd (JSE, NYSE: GFI), which is managed and operated by Galiano.  The previously announced 2020 exploration program at the AGM (see news release dated May 5, 2020) consisting of approximately 36,000m of Diamond (DD) and Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling, has been underway with four drill rigs and is now approximately 35% completed.  This news release provides an update on the drilling and results for the Akwasiso open pit.

Highlights

  • Third phase of mineralization has been delineated and is expected to be mined in 2021
  • Drilling highlights (see Table 1 for details):
    • Hole 186:  22 meters @ 2.8 g/t gold (from 155m to 174m)
    • Hole 185: 13 meters @ 4.1 g.t gold (from 39m to 52m)
    • Hole 179: 13 meters @ 2.7 g/t gold (from 34m to 47m)
    • Hole 191: 2 meters @ 15.3 g/t gold (from 90m to 92m)
  • Western domain open at depth and along strike for potential follow up drill program
  • Initial drilling program at Akwasiso complete with 4,560 meters consisting of 2,816 meters of RC and 1,744 meters of DD
  • Core logging complete with 80% of samples submitted for analysis and 71% of samples received
"Our first set of drill results from our 2020 exploration program appear to prove up additional mineralization near our processing plant, which we believe will contribute towards our first objective of replacing depletion." said Greg McCunn, Chief Executive Officer.  "Cut 2 of the Akwasiso pit is currently being mined and is expected to provide approximately 40% of the ore feed for H2 2020.  The drilling program has delineated a third cut at the pit which we expect will allow us to continue mining operations well into 2021."

The Akwasiso pit is located about 4km north-east of the processing plant along the Nkran shear corridor and was first mined in 2017.  In the first phase of mining, 1.6 Mt of ore grading 1.14 g/t of gold were mined and processed.  A second phase of mining was initiated in April 2020 (Cut 2), which contains estimated Indicated Mineral Resources1 of 2.8 million tonnes at 1.82 g/t gold (165,000 contained ounces of gold).  Mining of Cut 2 at Akwasiso is scheduled to take place over H2 2020 and early Q1 2021.  The current drilling program (2,816 meters of RC drilling and 1,744 meters of DD over 24 holes) has delineated a third phase of mining (Cut 3) which sits outside the current Mineral Resource Estimate..  With approximately 71% of the results returned so far, key intercepts are shown in Table 1.

Estimates of the contribution of this material to the Mineral Resources and Reserves at the AGM will become part of the end-of-year updated Resource Estimate expected to be dated December 31, 2020 and published in Q1 2021.

Note:  Intervals indicated are not true widths as there is insufficient geologic information to calculate true widths.  However, drill holes have been drilled to cross interpreted mineralized zones as close to perpendicular as possible.

Mineralization occurs at Akwasiso as veins and stockwork within and along the margin of a granite plug as well as within shear-hosted veins along the northwest margin (Figures 1, 2 and 3).  A similar structure appears to be emerging along the southeast margin of the granite.

Cautionary Note to US Investors Regarding Mineral Reporting Standards:

As a British Columbia corporation and a "reporting issuer" under Canadian securities laws, the Company is required to provide disclosure regarding its mineral properties, including the AGM, in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"). NI 43-101 is a rule developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators that establishes standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of scientific and technical information concerning mineral projects.  In accordance with NI 43-101, the Company uses the terms mineral reserves and resources as they are defined in accordance with the CIM Definition Standards on mineral reserves and resources (the "CIM Definition Standards") adopted by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum.  In particular, the terms "mineral reserve", "proven mineral reserve", "probable mineral reserve", "mineral resource", "measured mineral resource", "indicated mineral resource" and "inferred mineral resource" used in this press release are Canadian mining terms defined in accordance with CIM Definition Standards. These definitions differ from the definitions in the disclosure requirements promulgated by the SEC. Accordingly, information contained in this press release may not be comparable to similar information made public by U.S. companies reporting pursuant to SEC disclosure requirements.

United States investors are also cautioned that while the SEC will now recognize "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources" and "inferred mineral resources", investors should not to assume that any part or all of the mineralization in these categories will ever be converted into a higher category of mineral resources or into mineral reserves. Mineralization described using these terms has a greater amount of uncertainty as to their existence and feasibility than mineralization that has been characterized as reserves.  Accordingly, investors are cautioned not to assume that any "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources", or "inferred mineral resources" that the Company reports are or will be economically or legally mineable.

Further, "inferred resources" have a greater amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined legally or economically. Therefore, United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of the inferred resources exist.  In accordance with Canadian rules, estimates of "inferred mineral resources" cannot form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies, except in limited circumstances where permitted under NI 43-101. 

Neither Toronto Stock Exchange nor the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.

Value oder Growth? Eine Frage so alt wie die Börse

Value oder Growth? Eine Frage so alt wie die Börse
Die Frage, ob es sinnvoller ist, auf Value- oder auf Growth-Titel zu setzen, ist beinahe so alt wie die Börse selbst. Dabei sind mit der Bezeichnung „Value“ bewährte Unternehmen gemeint, deren Buchwert idealerweise aktuell möglichst niedrig bewertet wird.
