Mako Gold Limited (ASX:MKG) is an Australian based exploration company focused on advancing its flagship Napié Gold Project in Côte d’Ivoire located in the West African Birimian Greenstone Belts which hosts more than 70 +1Moz gold deposits. Senior management has a proven track record of high-grade gold discoveries and delineation of Mineral Resources in West Africa.
Mako Gold announced its 868koz Au maiden Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) at the Napié Project (224km²). The maiden MRE comprises the Tchaga and Gogbala prospects which constitute only 4.4km of the 30km-long Napié Shear. Only 13% of the Napié Shear has been systematically drilled, indicating strong potential of a multi-million-ounce gold system at Napié.
Mako completed the acquisition of an additional 39% interest in the Napié Project, increasing total ownership to 90%. As a result, established West African gold producer, Perseus Mining Limited (ASX:PRU), is a strategic shareholder with a 2.94% equity holding in Mako.
In addition, Mako Gold has 100% ownership of the Korhogo Project comprising two permits (296km2) covering 17km of faulted greenstone/ granite contact (high-grade gold targets) located within 30km of Barrick’s operating Tongon Gold Mine (4.9Moz Au).
Mako Gold recently announced a significant manganese discovery on the Korhogo Project which has the potential to be a globally significant deposit and provides Mako with an entry into the critical battery minerals race.
Mako has strategic alliances with Perseus Mining Limited (ASX:PRU) and Geodrill (TSX:GEO).
Mako Gold strives for excellence at being a good corporate citizen. To achieve this, we have a number of policies and practices in place to protect and enhance opportunities for our stakeholders. We recognise that attention to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles is an ongoing journey.
