Dioulafoundou has an indicated resource of 83,400 ounces gold at a 1 g/t cut off, and 19,900 ounces gold inferred.
Investor Relations Manager Michael McAllister told ResourceClips.com, “The results were better than what we expected and we are very pleased with them. As [President/CEO] John Begeman has said, this is a game changer for Avion. It gives us the opportunity to mine higher grades than in the past.
“This deposit provides us with a year or more’s worth of possibility of mill feed while we transition from open pit in the Segala area to underground in the Tabokoto and Segala areas. It provides us with more ore-feed and back-pocket resources as we move forward.”
