Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012
TORONTO, March 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Volta Resources Inc. ("Volta Resources" or the "Company") (TSX: VTR) announces the results from an additional six drill holes from its on-going Phase 3 program at its Kiaka Gold Project in Burkina Faso. Phase 3 comprises approximately 50,000m of drilling being undertaken to extend resources in the Central Area, to follow up positive results in the South Area, to test several more ground geophysical targets and undertake scout drilling on regional targets on the Kiaka property (see News Release of 13 October 2011).
The reported holes, comprising a total of 3,469.4m, were drilled across the Kiaka Main Zone (KMZ) orebody (5 holes) and (one hole) just south of the KMZ. They respectively aimed at extending the resources in the Central Zone at depth and at testing the southern continuity of the Main Orebody. All holes were oriented N135°E and drilled with an inclination of -60°.
The holes on sections 5200N to 5525N confirm the continuity of wide
mineralization at depth. In particular holes KDH329, KDH332 and KDH335 have extended the mineralization in that area to a vertical depth of over 450m.
Kevin Bullock, Volta's CEO, said, "With the results from the final holes of the infill drilling now starting to come in, we look forward to announcing an updated NI 43-101 compliant resource within the next few weeks."
Results for the holes are highlighted in Table 1 and in locations shown in
Figure 1. Analyses of the Volta samples were undertaken by fire assay on a 50g charge at ALS Chemex Laboratories in Ouagadougou. Volta's sampling and assay procedures included rigorous QA/QC elements that employed the inclusion of certified standards and blanks.
