Altus Strategies Plc, the Africa focused project and royalty generator, announced the discovery of a new gold prospect and positive results from a trial gravity survey at the Company’s 100% owned 412 kilometer Daro Cu-Au-Ag Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide project, located in the Tigray Regional State of northern Ethiopia. Mr Steven Poulton, Chief Executive of Altus, said that “We are pleased to report the discovery of the potentially significant Wedi Keshi gold prospect at the Daro VMS project in northern Ethiopia. Gold grades from rock chip sampling of quartz veins and altered wall rock material include 14.1 gram per tonne Au, 8.5 gram per tonne Au and 7.3 gram per tonne Au. Wedi Keshi is hosted within a highly altered quartz-feldspar porphyry intrusion, which was discovered by the Company’s Sentinel remote sensing program. The prospect has been mapped for approximately 2km in length and 300m in width. It is also coincident with a series of discontinuous hard gold workings and likely represents the primary source for the gold in the alluvial artisanal workings in the area. Follow up exploration will include channel and trench sampling, in order to define potential drill targets.”
