SAN JOSE, CA , June 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guskin Gold Corp. (OTC: GKIN) (“Guskin Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to release an initial report on the Kukuom Concession (the “Concession”) gold project located in Ghana, Africa.
The Sefwi-Bibiani Gold Belt
The Kukuom Concession is located in the highly renowned Sefwi-Bibiani gold belt. Known gold producers including Newmont, Kinross, Anglogold Ashanti and Asanko Gold, and are all within 100km of the Kukuom project area.
Historical production in the Sefwi-Bibiani gold belt include Newmont's world class Ahafo Mine with over 17 million ounces of gold, Kinross’ Chirano Mine at 5 million ounces, and the historic Bibiani Mine with 7 million ounces.
The Sefwi-Bibiani Gold Belt is a 40 to 60 km wide typical Birimian volcanic belt, striking 220km in Ghana and extends SW to the coast in Cote d'Ivoire. It is located north of, and parallel to, the prolific Ashanti Gold Belt, which hosts many of Ghana's active producing gold mines.
The Kukuom Gold Project
The Kukuom Concession covers a total surface area of 156 square kilometers and is located between the cities of Goaso and Bibiani in the Ahafo District of Ghana.
The Kukuom Concession gold project is a Joint Venture Partnership with Africa Exploration & Minerals Group Limited (AEMG) whereby Guskin Gold has an option to earn a 50% ownership in the operations for gold and other precious metal exploration and mining activities, as previously announced on June 6, 2021.
Guskin and AEMG are currently working towards mobilizing equipment and readying the site for further development of mining operations and gold production from alluvial deposits on the Concession, and the continued exploration and deposit delineation of the hard rock potential.
EMS Survey and Priority Targets
Guskin’s priority 2021 work program includes further exploration and exploitation of a 247-hectare section with proven alluvial and hard rock gold occurrences.
Remote sensing surveys carried out over the property produced a strong priority target anomaly with a North to South axis measuring 1,170 meters and a West to East axis 1,052 meters, or 1,230,840 sq/meters with an estimated 19’ thickness or approx. up to 6,293,109 tons of target material.
Gold has a nuclear magnetic resonance frequency of 1.754 Hz which can be captured through satellite scanning using the electromagnetic spectrum or (EMS). This energy signature is further isolated through proprietary algorithms and identifies locations where gold is most concentrated
The Target Open Pit
The open pit is characterized by variably degraded laterite to residual soil profiles with minor caps of indurated ferro-duricrust. The property is underlain by three main lithologies; granitoids, volcanic sediments, and volcaniclastics units which show evidence of later shear zone intrusions exhibiting quartz veins with promising mineralization including sulphides, altered garnet and sericite. The shearing and quartz stockworks are particularly well developed at number of exposed veins in the initial pit area developed (as shown exposed here in Vein 55).
2021 Work Program
Phase I of the 2021 work program includes the removal of the lateritic overburden layer believed to contain up to approximately 0.80 gram / ton (on average) down to bedrock and processing of the material to exploit alluvial gold and fund the Phase II hard rock drill program.
Phase II includes continued hard rock exploration and delineation of the target and host lithology, including a 17-hole drill program.
“Our work program is set out to generate immediate cash flow for the Company from the alluvial mining efforts, and to continue the development of the hard rock deposit to verify and validate the size of the hard rock opportunity and create a follow up plan to exploit the properties’ full potential”, states Mrs. Naana Asante, CEO of Guskin Gold.
