MONTREAL, Quebec, Nov. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sama Resources Inc. (“Sama” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: SME) is pleased to announce the beginning of the planned 6,000-meter (“m”) drilling program designed to test high-conductivity targets defined by Phase 1 of the Typhoon™ electromagnetic geophysical survey at the 100%-owned Yepleu property at the Company’s Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-Palladium Project in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa.
The drilling program is targeting semi-massive and massive polymetallic sulphide anomalies located between 600 m and 900 m from surface. Capital Drilling Côte d’Ivoire Limited is positioning the drill rig for the first hole.
“Mobilisation to the drill site in Yepleu was completed smoothly and preparations to commence drilling at the site are underway. We are excited to be working with Sama Resources on this project and look forward to commencing the drilling program.” said Mr. Brian Rudd, Executive Director of Capital Drilling.
The Company’s exploration objective is to delineate massive sulphide reservoirs that could be the source of high-grade nickel-copper-cobalt-palladium lenses intercepted in shallower boreholes at the Samapleu deposits.
