Imbo Licence – Prospects/Targets
During the colonial era Sociétée Minière de la Tele commenced exploitation on a deposit then known as the M’Boro mine, subsequently referenced as the Bagbaie Mine whose name was expanded to the Bagbaie – Adumbi mine and finally solely as Adumbi. Historical archived documents at the Royal Museum for Central Africa indicate that during gold processing mills operated simultaneously at both Bagbaie and Adumbi (RMCA, 2007).
Reconnaissance mapping to the north west of the Adumbi Prospect found historical workings with adits, infrastructure remnants and overgrown roads. Given this area may have been the former Bagbaie mine, but without conclusive confirmation, it is currently being referenced as the Adumbi North Prospect.
Multiple northwest-southeast trending shear zones, each hosting strike parallel quartz veins, have been mapped over a strike length in excess of 500 m within the meta-sedimentary rocks. Soil sampling over the immediate area of the shear zones and hosted quartz veins returned elevated and anomalous gold-in-soil values over a strike length of 400 m, the entire strike with data.
