- Cora Gold said a drilling programme had commenced its Sanankoro gold discovery in Mali and was due to be completed during the fourth quarter of 2020.

The effort was designed to further investigate the sulphide and deep oxide potential below known mineralisation at key prospects, and extend existing and potential new shallow oxide targets.

'In what has been an excellent exploration year so far, with our objective of defining higher grade zones at Sanankoro having been met as well as good indicators now pointing to sulphide potential, we look forward to the final phase of exploration for 2019,' chief executive Jonathan Forster said.

'With the objective of better understanding the potential beneath the base of the oxide mineralisation, and in addition starting to look to expansion of the oxide potential, we see the work as being likely to supplement the guidance on future development.'
