Sarama Resources Intersects High-Grade Gold Mineralisation at the South Hounde Project in Burkina Faso

VANCOUVER, BC –(Marketwired – June 19, 2017) – Sarama Resources Ltd. (“Sarama” or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE: SWA) is pleased to announce that high-grade gold mineralisation has been intersected in an ongoing extensional diamond drilling program at the South Houndé Project (the “Project“) in south-western Burkina Faso.

The program was designed to test depth and strike extensions to high-grade shoots within known mineral resources and forms part of an ongoing, multi-faceted exploration program aimed at increasing the Project’s 2.1Moz gold1 inferred mineral resource to support open pit mine development and investigate the potential for underground mining.

Highlights

  • Diamond drilling intersected exceptionally high-grade mineralisation, including an interval assaying 0.5m @ 112.3g/t Au, in the MC Deposit at the South Houndé Project.
  • Drilling targeted several discrete and high-grade shoots within the mineral resource to test for strike and depth extensions with a view to assessing underground mining potential.
  • Results continue to demonstrate the significant scale of the mineralised system at the South Houndé Project, with drill-defined mineralisation extending continuously from surface to a vertical depth of approximately 550m.
  • Drilling at the MM Deposit is anticipated to result in the extension of the mineral resource of approximately 200m down-dip in the areas proximal to high-grade shoots.
  • Drilling at the MC Deposit is anticipated to result in an approximate 150m strike extension of mineralisation around higher-grade shoots.
  • Program comprised of 11 holes for 1,300m reverse-circulation (“RC”) and 4,500m diamond drilling (or “DDH”) with highlighted downhole intersections including (see Appendices A & B for full details):

MC Deposit
 

A 3-hole program, consisting of 300m RC (pre-collars) and 1,000m diamond drilling was undertaken to test for strike and depth extensions of the mineral resource, proximal to high-grade mineralisation hosted in several different lode orientations. Of principal interest was a high-grade oblique lode represented by the intersection of mineralised, north-north-east (“NNE“) trending porphyry dykes and associated bounding sedimentary rocks, with a mineralised, north-east trending zone of cross faulting.

The drilling encountered several discrete mineralised lodes, assembled in a package of parallel lodes which is consistent with existing interpretations. Mineralisation was observed to be hosted in both porphyry dykes and in zones of altered sediments which are likely associated with NNE-trending structural features and generally featured high sulphide content, auguring well for elevated gold grades.

Of note was the intersection of 0.5m @ 112.3g/t Au from 232.2m in FRC1076RE1. The intersection represents the highest grade encountered in the Project to date and is interpreted to be intimately associated with the intersection of secondary oblique structural features with the predominant NNE-trending mineralisation to create an enrichment zone.

The drilling supports the expansion of the interpreted lodes by approximately 150m along strike, with depth extensions of up to 200m in several lodes also inferred.

Full results of the program are included in Appendix A, with highlighted intersections of:

FRC1076RE1 (DDH) 6.0m @ 12.15 g/t Au from 231.0m, including 2.6m @ 27.03 g/t Au from 231.6m,
  which includes 0.5m @ 112.3 g/t Au from 232.2m; and
  6.7m @ 3.85 g/t Au from 240.8m, including 3.9m @ 6.22 g/t Au from 243.1m
FRC1075RE1 (DDH) 6.8m @ 6.83 g/t Au from 173.2m, including 2.0m @ 18.76 g/t Au from 177.5m

Drilling in the area is ongoing, with planned holes building on observations from this recent drilling to better predict the intersection zones of the two dominant orientations of structural features.

MM Deposit
 

The 4.3km-long MM Deposit hosts the bulk of the Project’s 2.1Moz gold1 inferred mineral resource and features several near-surface, higher-grade shoots which extend to depth and have potential for exploitation by underground mining.

An 8-hole program, consisting of 1,000m RC (pre-collars) and 3,500m diamond drilling was undertaken to principally test for strike and depth extensions in two of the high-grade shoots within the mineral resource. Several infill holes were also drilled into the existing mineral resource to better understand the controls of the higher-grade mineralisation to assist in targeting of the step-out holes.

Observations from the recent drilling support the hypothesis that two generalised periods of gold mineralisation are present on the basis of alteration, structural orientation and sulphide content. The higher-grade shoots targeted by the drilling are understood to be produced by the intersection of late-stage cross-cutting gold mineralisation, characterised by a zonal distribution of albite-silica alteration and the presence of lenses and stringers of sulphides, with the earlier and more spatially extensive NNE-striking mineralised lodes that are generally hosted by porphyry dykes, but with instances of sediment-hosted mineralisation associated with structural features aligned with this trend.

The recent drilling encountered various styles of mineralisation presenting as a series of parallel lodes, consistent with expectations and yielded gold grades which have the potential for exploitation by underground mining. It is anticipated that the step-out drilling will support extension of the mineral resource by approximately 200m down-dip in the two high-grade shoot areas tested. A 250m extension to the strike of modelled mineralisation in one of the areas is also indicated by the recent drilling.

These anticipated extensions to the mineral resource reinforce the scale of the mineralised system at the South Houndé Project, which now is interpreted to extend to a vertical depth of 550m. When considered in the context of the 10.3km-long drill-defined ‘footprint’ of the mineral resource, significant depth potential is clearly evident.

Full results of the program are included in Appendix B, with highlighted intersections of:

FRC1070RE1 (DDH) 11.3m @ 3.50 g/t Au from 397.5m, including 6.5m @ 5.03 g/t Au from 397.5m; and
  17.3m @ 1.52g/t Au from 427.0m, including 5.1m @ 3.31g/t Au from 429.5m
FRC1071RE1 (DDH) 5.6m @ 2.65 g/t Au from 511.6m, including 1.5m @ 8.70 g/t Au from 513.1m
FRC1072RE1 (DDH) 4.2m @ 2.82 g/t Au from 532.7m, including 1.1m @ 7.83 g/t Au from 535.2m; and
  3.4m @ 5.25 g/t Au from 603.3m
Drilling is ongoing and will continue to test for depth and strike extensions to other higher-grade shoots located along the strike of the MM Deposit.
 

Sarama’s President and CEO, Andrew Dinning, commented:

“The shift in focus, for the near-resource portion of the exploration program, from extending near surface mineralisation to improving our understanding of the fabric and vertical extent of the system has immediately delivered results.

The deeper, high-grade intersections we are seeing broadens our development options to include underground mining. Although drill testing is limited, it has shown that we have continuity and economically significant grades at depth.

These drill results reinforce our belief that the South Houndé Project has the potential to be an open pit and underground mining complex, particularly when Sarama’s highly accretive Bondi Deposit and recently acquired Botoro Property are included in the equation. Sarama remains positioned to play a key role in the development of the southern part of the Houndé Belt.”

ABOUT SARAMA RESOURCES LTD

Sarama Resources Ltd (TSX VENTURE: SWA) is a West African focused gold explorer with substantial landholdings in Burkina Faso. Sarama is focused on consolidating under-explored landholdings in Burkina Faso and other established mining jurisdictions.

Sarama’s flagship properties are situated within the Company’s South Houndé Project area in south-west Burkina Faso. Located within the prolific Houndé Greenstone Belt, Sarama’s exploration programs have built on significant early success to deliver an inferred mineral resource estimate of 2.1 Moz gold1. Acacia Mining plc is earning up to a 70% interest in the South Houndé Project by satisfying certain conditions, including funding earn-in expenditures of up to US$14 million, over a 4-year earn-in period and may acquire an additional 5% interest, for an aggregate 75% interest in the Project, upon declaration of a minimum mineral reserve of 1.6 million ounces of gold. Acacia has satisfied certain milestones and currently holds a 50% interest in the South Houndé Project and is continuing to sole fund exploration activities.

Sarama holds a 31% participating interest in the Karankasso Project Joint Venture (“JV“) which is situated adjacent to the Company’s South Houndé Project in Burkina Faso and is a JV between Sarama and Savary Gold Corp. (“Savary“). Savary is the operator of the JV and in October 2015, declared a maiden inferred mineral resource estimate of 671,000 ounces of contained gold2 at the Karankasso Project JV.

Sarama has also agreed to acquire4 a 100% interest in the Bondi Deposit from Orezone Gold Corporation (refer news release May 24, 2016). Bondi has a historical estimate of mineral resources of 0.3Moz Au (measured and indicated) and 0.1Moz Au (inferred)3.

Together, the South Houndé Project, Bondi Deposit and the Karankasso Project form a cluster of advanced gold deposits, within trucking distance of one another, which potentially offers a development option for a multi-source fed central processing facility in the southern Houndé Belt region of Burkina Faso.

Incorporated in 2010, the Company’s Board and management team have a proven track record in Africa and a strong history in the discovery and development of large-scale gold deposits. Sarama is well positioned to build on its current success with a sound exploration strategy across its property portfolio.

NOTES — DRILLING

Drilling results are quoted as downhole intersections. True widths of mineralisation are estimated to be approximately 70% to 80% of reported downhole intersection lengths, except as otherwise noted. The orientation of some of the mineralised units is not yet well understood.

The reported composites for the drilling were determined using a cut-off grade of 0.30g/t Au to select significant and anomalous intersections, with a maximum of 2m internal dilution being incorporated into the composite where appropriate. No top-cuts were applied to assay grades. Isolated mineralised intersections less than 2m in length have not been reported.

Gold assays for the drilling were undertaken by the Bigs Global laboratories in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Assays are determined by fire assay methods using a 50 gram charge, lead collection and an AAS finish with lower detection limits of 0.005g/t Au (Bigs Global).

The drilling was generally designed using a range of azimuths, according to program aims and mineralization orientation, dipping at approximately -55-60° and were of variable length. Holes were spaced at various intervals according to targeting intent. RC holes where sampled, were sampled at regular 1m downhole intervals. All diamond holes were sampled according to geological intervals but were generally

Intersection oxidation state classification is based on visual logging of the drillholes.

Sarama undertakes geological sampling and assays in accordance with its quality assurance/quality control program which includes the use of certified reference materials for AC, RC and diamond drilling as well as field duplicates in the case of AC and RC drilling.
