Galiano Gold Provides Nkran Exploration Update

VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Galiano Gold Inc. ("Galiano" or the "Company") (TSX: GAU) (NYSE: GAU) (formerly Asanko Gold Inc.) is pleased to announce an update from its 2020 exploration program underway at the Asanko Gold Mine ("AGM"), located in Ghana, West Africa. The AGM is a 50:50 joint venture ("JV") with Gold Fields Ltd (JSE, NYSE: GFI), which is managed and operated by Galiano. In addition to the previously announced 2020 exploration program at the AGM (see news release dated May 5, 2020) consisting of approximately 36,000m of Diamond (DD) and Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling, the Company has completed a 33 hole drilling program at the AGM's Nkran pit. The program was designed to both confirm and improve confidence in the Mineral Reserve Estimate for the third phase of mining at Nkran as well as test the extent of mineralization below the proposed Cut 3 pit shell. Mining of Cut 3 is contemplated to start in late 2022.

Highlights

  • Drilling highlights (see Table 1 for details):
    • Hole 012: 79 meters @ 4.7 g/t gold (from 1m to 80m) and
                       80 meters @ 3.9 g/t gold (from 84m to 164m)
    • Hole 021: 43 meters @ 3.3 g/t gold (from 1m to 44m)
    • Hole 022: 44 meters @ 3.2 g/t gold (from 14m to 58m)
    • Hole 023: 62 meters @ 6.1 g/t gold (from 65m to 127m)
    • Hole 025: 30 meters @ 21.5 g/t gold (from 128m to 158m)
    • Hole 026: 27 meters @ 4.9 g/t gold (from 137m to 164m)
    • Hole 028: 27 meters @ 3.7 g/t gold (from 93m to 120m)
  • Improved confidence in estimated Indicated Mineral Resources for Cut 3 mine planning
  • Identification of mineralization continuing below the currently planned Cut 3
  • Further work required to evaluate a potential transition of Nkran to an underground mine
  • All core logging and sampling has been completed and all results have been received

"Our in-pit drilling program has indicated that the Nkran mineralized system is continuing to depth," said Greg McCunn, Chief Executive Officer. "While the drilling has improved our confidence in the third cut of the open pit that was envisioned in our life of mine plan, the results indicate that further drilling and engineering is required to determine if Nkran Cut 3 can be expanded or should be transitioned from an open pit to an underground mine."

Nkran Cut 3 Ongoing Work

The Nkran pit is located immediately adjacent to the 5.4 million tonne per annum processing plant and has been the main source of ore at the AGM since commercial production commenced in 2016. Cut 2 of the open pit operations was depleted at the end of Q2 2020 and in-pit drilling commenced in early July. Cut 3 is envisioned to commence waste stripping operations in late 2022 as part of the life of mine plan. Mineral Resources and Reserves1 estimated at Nkran as at December 31, 2019 were as follows:

  • 8.5 Mt of Indicated Mineral Resources at 2.14 g/t gold (586 koz contained gold), including
  • 10.9 Mt of Probable Mineral Reserves at 1.64 g/t gold (577koz contained gold)

______________________

1 Refer to the Company's NI 43-101 Technical Report (amended and restated) for the Asanko Gold Mine dated June 9, 2020 for further information on Mineral Reserves and Resources stated as at December 31, 2020, including the key assumptions, parameters and methods used to estimate the Mineral Resources and Reserves and risks associated with the Mineral Resource and Reserve estimate. The estimated Mineral Resources are reported inclusive of estimated Mineral Reserves. Generally for the Asanko Gold Mine, Mineral Resources were estimated using a $1,500/oz gold pit shell, while Mineral Reserves were estimated using $1,300/oz gold. However, for the Nkran pit specifically, no practical mining design could be completed using the $1,300/oz shell due to mining width restrictions within the existing pit, and therefore the Mineral Reserve pit was also then designed using the same $1,500/oz shell.

The July 2020 drill program was designed to improve confidence in the Cut 3 Resource Estimate for continued open pit operation. In total, 4,591 meters of RC and DD drilling were completed with key intercepts shown in Table 1. Estimates of the contribution of this material to the Mineral Resources and Reserves at the AGM is expected to be included in the end-of-year updated Mineral Resource and Reserve Estimate expected to be dated December 31, 2020 and published in Q1 2021.

A second phase of drilling was initiated in August 2020 and is currently underway with one drill rig operating. The second phase drill program consists of 26 RC holes which will be drilled from surface around the existing pit rim, testing for mineralization in push-back zones for the proposed Cut 3 waste material.

In addition, a geotechnical drilling and engineering campaign has been initiated targeting the proposed new west wall location for Cut 3. Previous instability in the west wall of the Nkran pit has largely been attributed to the presence of a small waste dump created in the early 2000's by prior oxide mining operations. Cut 3 development envisions removing all of this waste dump, potentially improving the geotechnical conditions in the new west wall.

Upon completion of the current drilling and geotechnical work, it is expected that the design of Cut 3 will be finalized and a definitive mine plan and capital cost estimate completed in early 2021.

Note: Intervals indicated are not true widths as there is insufficient geologic information to calculate true widths. However, drill holes have been drilled to cross interpreted mineralized zones as close to perpendicular as possible. Intercepts in bold are those listed in the Highlights.

Nkran Underground Potential
In parallel to the Cut 3 drilling and engineering work underway for Nkran, the Company is evaluating the potential to transition Nkran to an underground mine, either prior to or following the completion of Cut 3. Planned work over the coming months will include planning for an underground exploration decline, development of a drilling program to follow-up on testing the extent of the mineralized system at depth and completing a conceptual study to investigate the potential of transitioning Nkran to an underground mine.

Nkran Geology and Cross Sections
The Nkran geological setting is typical of the Asankrangwa belt with a sedimentary sequence of interlayered shale, siltstone, and sandstone. Two granitic bodies intrude along shear zones that control mineralization which dips steeply to the northwest along with the sheared host stratigraphy. The mineralization indicated by the Company's drilling program and reported in this press release lies within and below the currently planned Cut 3 pushback of the Nkran pit. The grade and continuity of the mineralization indicated by the Company's drilling program are sufficient to warrant evaluation of this mineralization for potential underground mining.

Figure 1 shows the location of drill holes and intercepts. Cross sections (Figures 2, 3, and 4) demonstrate the location of intercepts with current block model and Cut 3 plans. Review and reassessment of the current block model is planned in light of these new results.

Cautionary Note to US Investors Regarding Mineral Reporting Standards:
As a British Columbia corporation and a "reporting issuer" under Canadian securities laws, the Company is required to provide disclosure regarding its mineral properties, including the AGM, in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"). NI 43-101 is a rule developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators that establishes standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of scientific and technical information concerning mineral projects. In accordance with NI 43-101, the Company uses the terms mineral reserves and resources as they are defined in accordance with the CIM Definition Standards on mineral reserves and resources (the "CIM Definition Standards") adopted by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum. In particular, the terms "mineral reserve", "proven mineral reserve", "probable mineral reserve", "mineral resource", "measured mineral resource", "indicated mineral resource" and "inferred mineral resource" used in this press release are Canadian mining terms defined in accordance with CIM Definition Standards. These definitions differ from the definitions in the disclosure requirements promulgated by the SEC. Accordingly, information contained in this press release may not be comparable to similar information made public by U.S. companies reporting pursuant to SEC disclosure requirements.

United States investors are also cautioned that while the SEC will now recognize "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources" and "inferred mineral resources", investors should not to assume that any part or all of the mineralization in these categories will ever be converted into a higher category of mineral resources or into mineral reserves. Mineralization described using these terms has a greater amount of uncertainty as to their existence and feasibility than mineralization that has been characterized as reserves. Accordingly, investors are cautioned not to assume that any "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources", or "inferred mineral resources" that the Company reports are or will be economically or legally mineable.

Further, "inferred resources" have a greater amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined legally or economically. Therefore, United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of the inferred resources exist.  In accordance with Canadian rules, estimates of "inferred mineral resources" cannot form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies, except in limited circumstances where permitted under NI 43-101. 

Neither Toronto Stock Exchange nor the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
