Ironridge Resources (IRR) FOLLOW on Wednesday praised ‘exceptional’ drill results from the Zaranou Gold Project in the Ivory Coast.

The AIM-listed firm said multiple high-grade and broad gold intersections were returned from initial drilling assay results which found intersections at grades as high as 23g/t, and surface sampling results up to 69.6g/t gold.

The Zaranou Project license borders with Ghana and is along strike from significant operating gold mines including Chirano (Kinross Gold), Bibiani (Resolute Mining), and Ahafo, (Newmont).

Shares in IronRidge were trading 20% higher at 12.75p on Wednesday morning

Len Kolff, Chief Operating Officer of IronRidge, said: "Assay results received to date are exceptional for a first-pass exploration drill programme and indicate potential for a significant gold discovery, notwithstanding that only such a small portion of the large target footprint has been drill tested to date.”

He added: "Achieving the broad and high-grade gold intersections returned to date as part of a first pass exploration drill programme is a significant result and demonstrates the exploration potential of the Zaranou Gold Project.

Ironridge said that assay results are pending for remaining highlight aircore traverses, as well as deeper RC holes.

The company told investors once the results are received and reviewed, it plans a follow-up exploration and drill programme.
