Vancouver, Canada – October 23, 2020 – Arbor Metals Corp.(the “Company”) (TSXV:ABR), (FWB:432) is pleased to announces that it has completed its recent soil grid geochemistry program at the 250-sq km Rakounga Gold Project (the “Project”), located in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
The 55-line kilometer soil geochemistry program was designed to extend the geochemical gold anomalies identified in 2019 and to test for continuity of these geochemical gold trends extending from the neighbouring Bouboulou permit which borders the Rakounga permit on the north.The soil program collected a total of 779 samples which were collected at fifty metre stations on lines spaced 200 metres apart. Samples were collected from depths which averaged 50 cm below the surface.
The program concentrated on filling in a gap between previous soil grid programs trending southwest, in a north eastern direction towards the Bouboulou 1 orpaillage (artisanal mining area) located along the concession boundary (see image below). Samples were delivered to Activation Laboratories (“Actlabs”) Ouagadougou, an independent laboratory with ISO 9001: 2015 accreditation for analysis. Results will be released once received, reviewed, and verified by the Company’s geological team.
