  West African Resources extends Mankarga 5 trend by 1.5km with up to 0.63g/t Au in auger drilling

Gold developer West African Resources Limited (ASX, TSXV: WAF) is excited to announce significant results from auger drilling along strike of the Mankarga 5 deposit, Tanlouka Permit Burkina Faso.

Managing Director Richard Hyde commented:

"Auger drilling along strike from the proposed open pit has delivered strong results with a peak of 0.63g/t Au. The gold anomaly over this previously untested zone is similar in grade and tenor to auger results over the existing Mankarga 5 resource area."

"RC drilling has commenced over the extension of Mankarga 5, and results will be reported as they are received by the Company."

Mankarga 5

Auger drilling along strike to the northeast of the Mankarga 5 (M5) deposit has delivered strong results demonstrating the continuation of mineralisation along strike of the proposed oxide starter pit that the Company intends to treat by conventional heap leach processing.

Importantly the results from the recent WAF auger shows that the geochemical signature over known mineralisation is subtle and discreet with only seven samples greater than 160ppb Au within the proposed starter pit outline. Results along strike of the M5 resource demonstrate that there is significant potential to add more oxide tonnes to the heap leach starter project and extend the current PFS mine life of 7 years.

In total 245 auger holes, with an average depth of 5.3m, were drilled along strike of the M5 resource area on lines oriented northeast - southwest, on a 200m by 50m grid. Sampling returned a peak result of 635 ppb Au (0.64g/t Au) with other high tenor results of 228 ppb Au, 224 ppb Au and 218 ppb Au.
