Algold Receives Positive Preliminary IP Results in Mauritania

Posted: Updated:

MONTREAL, CANADA / ACCESSWIRE / March 27, 2014 / Algold Resources Limited. (ALG: TSXV – the “Corporation” www.algold.com) announces progress on its Q1 2014 exploration program in Mauritania.

Preliminary IP results for the Kneivissat Central Zone over a strong combined magnetic anomaly and coincident gold soil anomaly are very encouraging. The E-W IP line are being laid over a silica-rich volcanic and metsedimentary sequence known as the Favourable Silicified Horizon, which extends from the Tasiast Mine (see PR March 3rd 2014). This area is recognised as a prime target by Algold technical staff and a first priority for subsequent RC drilling.

Francois Auclair, Algold CEO, commented: “These preliminary results showing coincident magnetometer, soil gold geochemical and IP chargeability anomalies are extremely encouraging and support our interpretation of the geological model of the Tasiast belt”.

Currently, exploration work is being carried on both the Kneivissat and Legouessi properties. The Kneivissat property is 90% owned by Algold and the Legouessi property is being managed through a 51% earn-in interest agreement with Caracal Gold (Electrum Group Companies). Algold can earn up to a 90% interest in the Legouessi exploration permit (see October 10, 2013 press release for more details). Both properties are easily accessible by paved road from the capital of Mauritania, Nouakchott, and are situated in northwestern Mauritania, adjoining the world class Tasiast Gold Deposit.

Update highlights include:


Kneivissat :

-Assays results received for 437 samples – results shown on accompanying map (Figure 1),

-Completion of 2.7 km line of Pole Dipole Array IP Survey,

-Completion of 7.9 square km Dipole Dipole Gradient Arrays IP;


Legouessi :

-A further 149 soil samples sent for analysis in March, for a total of 328 since January,

-Assays results expected shortly,

-Completion of 17.65 km line of Pole Dipole Array IP Survey,

-Completion of 17 square km Dipole Dipole Gradient Arrays IP;


Kneivissat

The IP Pole Dipole survey preliminary results from L1 profile on the Kneivissat central grid area indicate four main chargeable and resistive anomalies within a conductive environment related to a folded and sheared volcano sedimentary zone. The anomalies present a good depth extension and the anomaly at station 600 is clearly associated with the important magnetic trend uncovers by the Airborne Magnetometer survey conducted by Algold in Q4 2013 (Figure 1).

Further, geological mapping and soil geochemical analysis have pointed out to two new prospective areas on the Kneivissat property, one located in the western corner of the southern part of the property and another in the south central part of the property, all related to metavolcanic and metasedimentary sequences.

Two IP grid are being surveyed on the Kneivissat property which covers 7.9 sq km for gradient arrays IP as well as 4 lines of 1 km for Pole Dipole arrays IP.


Legouessi

A total of 149 soil samples were sent for analysis in March. Assays are expected shortly.

A 21 km of pole-dipole lines and 17 square km of dipole-dipole gradient are planned on 10 prospective areas, three of which show coincident aeromagnetic and soil anomalies. Six pole-dipole lines have already been surveyed and results are pending. Dipole-dipole surveys will follow shortly. As for Kneivissat in the Legouessi Centre and SL areas, two main magnetic anomalies are related to carbonate and silica-rich alteration found in meta-ultramafic and metasedimentary folded and sheared sequences along with soil gold anomalies.

This Mapping and Geophysical Survey will be followed by an exploration drilling program in Q2 2014 over the most favourable prospects.


Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC)

Analytical work for soil geochemical samples and rock chips samples is being carried out at the independent ALS “Abilab” Laboratories Ltd. in Bamako, Mali. Samples are stored at Algold field camp and put into sealed bags until delivered by a geologist to ALS preparation laboratory in Nouakchott, Mauritania. Samples are sieved and prepared for shipping to Bamako. In Bamako, samples are crushed and pulverised to 200 mesh (80 micron) and a 30 gram split is analysed by fire assay with an AA finish. Blanks and duplicates are being used to monitor laboratory performance during the analysis. Analytical work for the drilling program conducted by Caracal was carried out at ALS Irish laboratory, under the supervision of a senior geologist.
