2017 Exploration Program
In 2017, exploration activities at Mana include a discovery drilling program that has the aim of identifying near-site satellite deposits.
The initial exploration budget for Mana has been set at $5 million and will include 80,000 meters of auger, 15,000 meters of reverse-circulation and 4,500 meters of core drilling designed to confirm or expand mineralization within trucking distance of the Mana Mine. Accordingly, three auger drills are currently mobilised on the Mana Ouest and Fobiri permits, and one multi-purpose drill is active on Siou at depth. Approximately $1 million of the 2017 budget has been assigned to testing the underground potential at Siou.
