Key Highlights

Introduction

Polymetals Resources Ltd (ASX: POL) has recently acquired 100% interest in Golden Guinea Resources SARL (Golden Guinea) which owns two exploration licences within the Siguiri Basin in Guinea, West Africa. The Siguiri Basin occupies the north-eastern corner of Guinea and hosts several large active gold mining operations and is notable for its widespread gold anomalism. The region is considered prospective and relatively immature from an exploration perspective and produces over 500,000 oz of gold/year. The largest operation is the AngloGold Ashanti Siguiri Gold Mine, located 37km west of the Golden Guinea licences, which has now produced more than six (6) million ounces over its 20-year life.

The two Golden Guinea exploration Licences, known as Alahiné (64.21km2) and Mansala (48.23km2), host many historic and current small scale gold mining operations conducted by local individuals known as artisans.  Previous field activities at Alahiné comprised of two soil sampling programs and one reverse circulation drilling campaign. Initial whole of licence soil sampling at Mansala conducted by the Company achieved similar results to Golden Guinea’s Alahiné work with significant gold anomalism defined.

The West African Craton while historically a significant producer over a long period has, over the past 20-30 years, evolved into one of the most productive and biggest gold producing regions in the world. Since 2017, the Western African Craton has exceeded gold production from the entire Yilgarn Province of Western Australia, an area similar in size and geological age.

Terms of the Offer

Polymetals Resources Ltd is looking to undertake an IPO on ASX to raise between $5 million and $7 million via the issue of between 25 million to 35 million shares under the Offer at an offer price of $0.20.  The company will have an indicative market capitalisation of approximately $17.69 million (at maximum raise) on completion of the offer. 

Guinea’s Siguiri Basin

The Siguiri Basin occupies the north-eastern corner of Guinea, otherwise referred to as Upper Guinea. It is host to several significant large active gold mining operations and is notable for its widespread gold anomalism which has been variously mined since ancient times and been subject to extensive modern exploration over the past 25 years.  The region is still considered prospective and relatively immature from an exploration perspective. The basin is the most productive Au mining area in Guinea producing over 500,000 oz of gold/year.

The Projects

The projects are located within the Siguiri Basin, North East Guinea, West Africa. Guinea, as a country, has significant areas held under mineral title predominantly for the bulk commodities bauxite (aluminium) in the northwest near the coast and, yet unexploited, iron ore, in the south east (Simandou).

The Siguiri Basin is both a “recent” physical drainage basin flowing inland to the northeast incorporating the Niger, Tinkisso and Sankarani Rivers and an ancient geological sedimentary basin entity which hosts the source of significant gold resources and shallow recent alluvial gold mineralisation derived by erosion of the mineralised basin sediments. The shallow gold resources have been exploited for many centuries by artisanal miners in both formal and informal operations and such exploitation continues today. In addition, several modern major mines are active today.

The project within the Siguiri Basin consists of two prospects with salient details as follows:

The Alahiné Licence (EL22123)

This licence encompasses an area of 64km2. A soil sampling program was successful in delineating broad zones of gold anomalism along the eastern side of the licence. Also, a significant number of single and multiple station Au-anomalous sites were identified more generally across the licence.

As defined by soil sampling during 2018 and 2019, there are three areas with significant gold anomalism extending over approximately 8 km in length. Additionally, twelve single station anomalies with >1000 parts per billion (ppb) gold and 8 anomalies with 500 to 1000ppb gold elsewhere in the licence must be further progressed. All soil samples were collected from depths of 200 to 300mm beneath the ground surface and are an accurate reflection of the natural abundance of gold in the soil at a given sample location.

There are also substantial areas of lateritic cover which may conceal zones of structurally hosted vein mineralisation and supergene enriched or basal laterite hosted gold, in which investigation works will follow.

Following a successful soil program, a reconnaissance program of 21 Reverse Circulation drill holes commenced on 12 December 2019 and was completed 24 February 2020. The program totalled 2406 metres to typical depths of 100-120 metres downhole.

Drill hole AHRC014 was the most significant hole drilled in the program. The near surface section of the hole (1 to 41m) contains low grade gold mineralisation with assays ranging from 0.99g/t to 0.62g/t. A second more strongly mineralised intercept from 89m to end of hole in fresh rock contains several mineralized zones including 12m at 3.09g/t from 89m and 14m at 1.09g/t from 135m.

The Mansala Licence (EL22694)

This licence encompasses an area of 48km2 to the south of Alahiné. The Company has undertaken a licence-wide program of soil geochemical sampling in a similar manner to that undertaken in the Alahiné Licence focused on defining the distribution of gold anomalism associated with transported regolith that broadly masks the deeply weathered terrain. This recent program (completed December 2020) has identified numerous significant gold anomalies which will be followed up and drill tested in the coming field season. Further interpretation of the large body of geochemical data acquired will likely produce additional drilling targets.

 

Business model and growth strategy

The principal business model is to explore the Company’s Exploration Licences efficiently, aiming to delineate significant and economic gold reserves which can support the development and operation of a large and long-life gold mine. Continued focus will be directed to expanding the Company’s ground position within the area. The Company is production focused and aims to define gold reserves from its exploration activities which may support a mine development.

The Company aims to define gold reserves which may support the development of a large and long-term gold mining operation and will be seeking to expand its ground position within the Siguiri Basin and will maintain a business development production focus not only within Guinea but also within the West African region, Asia and Australia.

The Board will also consider acquisitions within the Siguiri Basin that allow the Company to increase its landholdings and expand its exploration footprint. In addition to this, the Company will continue to monitor Australian acquisition targets that align with the Company’s business model and strategic objective.
