GALIANO GOLD PROVIDES EXPLORATION DRILLING UPDATE

PR Newswire

VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Galiano Gold Inc. (“Galiano” or the “Company”) (TSX: GAU) (NYSE: GAU) is pleased to provide an update of drilling results from its 2021 exploration program at the Asanko Gold Mine (“AGM”), located in Ghana. The AGM is a 50:50 joint venture (“JV”) with Gold Fields Ltd (JSE, NYSE: GFI), with the JV managed and operated by Galiano.

Exploration activity in the first half of 2021 focused on Miradani North (drill results were reported in news releases dated February 25, 2021 and May 20, 2021). Exploration activity in the second half of the year focused on expanding existing resources and testing near-mine targets at three properties: Dynamite Hill, Kaniago West and Midras South. A summary of each of these properties along with detailed drilling results are shown below.

Dynamite Hill Highlights
30 holes have been drilled at Dynamite Hill in 2021, totalling 6,110m (3,897m diamond core (“DC”) and 2,213m reverse circulation (“RC”)), including the following highlighted intercepts:

  • Hole DYPC21-124 intersected 5.1m at 10.5 g/t Au (from 232.9m)
  • Hole DYPC21-125 intersected 23.8m at 1.9 g/t Au (from 201.2m)
  • Hole DYPC21-139 intersected 40.1m at 2.4 g/t Au (from 146m)
  • Hole DYPC21-140 intersected 33.2m at 2.6 g/t Au (from 140m)

Kaniago West Highlights
27 holes have been drilled at Kaniago West in 2021, totalling 4,508m (1,600m DC and 2,908m RC), including the following highlighted intercepts:

  • Hole KNPC21-008 intersected 25m at 1.2 g/t Au (from 243m)
  • Hole KNPC21-009 intersected 11.6m at 3.6 g/t Au (from 196.4m), 14.4m at 1.5 g/t Au, (from 215.6m), and 11.0m at 1.2 g/t Au (from 260m)
  • Hole KNRC21-017 intersected 24m at 1.8 g/t Au (from 33m)

Midras South Highlights
19 holes have been drilled at Midras South in 2021, totalling 3,724m (1,163m DC and 2,561m RC), including the following highlighted intercepts:  

  • Hole MSPC21-088 intersected 6m at 8.6 g/t Au (from 65m)
  • Hole MSPC21-096 intersected 8m at 5.3 g/t Au (from 275m)
  • Hole MSPC21-098 intersected 6m at 2.8 g/t Au (from 103m), and 19.2m at 9.1 g/t Au (from 184m)

“The results from the drilling at Dynamite Hill, Kaniago West and Midras South demonstrate the long term exploration potential at the AGM,” said Matt Badylak President and Chief Executive Officer. “We will publish an updated Mineral Reserve and Resource statement later in Q1, 2021 which will include a maiden Mineral Resource for Miradani and a Mineral Reserve and Resource for Dynamite Hill, a previously operating pit. Both Kaniago West and Midras South are located within a 10km radius of the processing plant and have shown promising intercepts. We expect to continue to drill out these properties in 2022. In addition to these targets our 2022 drilling will also focus on exploring the underground potential at both Nkran and Miradani. Deep drilling at both projects is planned  to commence in early 2022.”

Dynamite Hill Overview (see Table 1 for full drilling results)
The Dynamite Hill deposit is located on the Adubea Mining Lease, approximately 7km northeast of the AGM’s processing plant (shown in Figure 1).  The AGM mined the previous Reserve base at the deposit, with mining being completed in late 2019. However, indicated mineralization remained open at depth at cessation of mining. Recent drilling has confirmed that indicated mineralization continues to 100m+ beneath the existing pit bottom. As pictured in Figures 3 and 4, this indicated mineralization appears to be supported at depth with indicated geological continuity.  Select intercepts from Dynamite Hill include:

  • Hole DYPC21-123 intersected 33.4m at 1.5 g/t Au (from 189.7m)
  • Hole DYPC21-124 intersected 5.1m at 10.5 g/t Au (from 232.9m)
  • Hole DYPC21-125 intersected 23.8m at 1.9 g/t Au (from 201.2m)
  • Hole DYPC21-126 intersected 4.8m at 3.0 g/t Au (from 147.2m)
  • Hole DYPC21-127 intersected 14m at 1.9 g/t Au (from 149m)
  • Hole DYPC21-128 intersected 9m at 1.9 g/t Au (from 39m), 7m at 1.5 g/t Au (from 190m), and 13.5m at 1.6 g/t Au (from 213.5m)
  • Hole DYPC21-129 intersected 14m at 1.0 g/t Au (from 23m), and 45m at 0.9 g/t (from 202m) Hole DYPC21-130 also returned 23m @ 0.7 g/t Au, (from 180m)
  • Hole DYPC21-132 returned 11.04m @ 1.8 g/t Au, (from 135.8m)
  • Hole DYPC12-134 intersected 54m at 1.2 g/t Au (from 156m)
  • Hole DYPC12-139 intersected 40.1m at 2.4 g/t Au (from 146m)
  • Hole DYPC21-140 intersected 12m at 0.8 g/t Au (from 25m), and 33.2m at 2.6 g/t Au (from 140m)

The Dynamite Hill deposit is situated along the Nkran shear zone, a laterally extensive structure recognized from airborne VTEM and magnetic surveys and extensively mapped on the ground. The Nkran shear zone plays host to the Nkran, Akwasiso and Asuadai deposits, part of the prominent northeast striking Asankrangwa gold belt.

Indicated mineralization at Dynamite Hill is spatially associated with two en echelon, steeply west dipping tonalite intrusives that have preferentially intruded along a northeast trending corridor. Of note, a second, much smaller vertical to steeply east dipping mineralised structure was discovered during this campaign. Indicated mineralization occurs in the intrusives and in the surrounding deformed sandstone, siltstone and phyllite rock package in a similar fashion to the nearby Nkran deposit. These intrusives are believed to act as excellent hosts to mineralising fluids. Stratigraphy and structure are both steeply dipping to the northwest as they do for most of the Asankrangwa Belt gold deposits. Indicated gold mineralization at Dynamite Hill occurs in quartz veins and in association with silica flooding, pyrite, arsenopyrite, and traces of base metal sulfides, within a broader envelope of quartz-sericite-pyrite and carbonate alteration.

Kaniago West Overview (See Table 1 for full drilling results)
The Kaniago West prospect, acquired as part of the Midlands Mineral Corporation property transaction in 2015 (see news release dated March 25, 2015) is conveniently located just 5km NW of the AGM’s processing plant (shown in Figure 1). Recent drilling has intersected broad zones of quartz breccia and veining with associated visible gold mineralization beneath and along strike from narrow, near surface zones discovered by Midlands. Indicated mineralization remains open at depth and along strike. Select intercepts from Kaniago West include:

  • Hole KNPC21-008 intersected 25m at 1.2 g/t Au (from 243m)
  • Hole KNPC21-007 intersected 10m at 1.4 g/t Au (from 91m)
  • Hole KNPC21-009 intersected 11.6m at 3.6 g/t Au (from 196.4m), 14.4m at 1.5 g/t Au, (from 215.6m), and 11.0m at 1.2 g/t Au (from 260m)
  • Hole KNPC21-012 intersected 7m at 12.6 g/t Au (from 51m), and 14m @ 1.7 g/t Au (from 63m)
  • Hole KNRC21-017 intersected 24m at 1.8 g/t Au (from 33m)

The Kaniago West prospect lies along the Esaase – Abore shear zone, a laterally extensive structure recognized from airborne VTEM and magnetic surveys and extensively mapped on the ground. The structure plays host to the Esaase and Abore deposits, part of the prominent northeast striking Asankrangwa gold belt. Anomalous gold-in-soils can be traced for several kilometres NE of the current Kaniago West drilling and as yet untested alluvial gold workings can be seen to the SW.

Indicated mineralization at Kaniago West is developed within a package of deformed sandstone, siltstone and phyllite. Stratigraphy and structure are both steeply dipping to the northwest as they do for most of the Asankrangwa Belt gold deposits. Indicated gold mineralization at Kaniago West occurs in association with silica flooding [and] distinctive stylolitic quartz veining (similar to that noted at Esaase) with patchy visible gold and pyrite, within a broader envelope of quartz-sericite-pyrite and carbonate alteration.

Midras South Overview (See Table 1 for full drilling results)
Midras South is located on the Datano Mining Lease, 5km south of the AGM’s processing plant (shown in Figure 1). The drill program at Midras South was designed to expand on the known mineralized systems in the area, and although only partially completed due to access issues, did provide some of the better high grade intercepts this year to date. Select intercepts from Midras South include:

  • Hole MSPC21-088 intersected 6m at 8.6 g/t Au (from 65m)
  • Hole MSPC21-089 intersected 9.7m at 2.4 g/t Au (from 187m)
  • Hole MSPC21-096 intersected 8m at 5.3 g/t Au (from 275m)
  • Hole MSPC21-098 intersected 6m at 2.8 g/t Au (from 103m), and 19.2m at 9.1 g/t Au (from 184m)
  • Hole MSRC21-106 intersected 6m at 2.9 g/t Au (from 5m), and 8m at 2.1 g/t Au (from 58m)

The Midras South prospect lies along the Takorase – Afraso shear zone, a laterally extensive structure recognized from airborne VTEM and magnetic surveys and extensively mapped on the ground. Midras South consists of 3 distinct zones of indicated mineralization, inferred to be fault offsets of the one ore zone.

Similar in character to Esaase and Kaniago West, indicated mineralization at Midras South is developed within a package of deformed sandstone, siltstone and phyllite. Stratigraphy and structure are both steeply dipping to the northwest as they do for most of the Asankrangwa Belt gold deposits. Indicated gold mineralization at Midras South occurs in association with quartz veining, arsenopyrite and pyrite, within a broader envelope of quartz-sericite-pyrite and carbonate alteration.

The Company believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements contained herein. Some of the risks and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements contained in this news release, include, but are not limited to: that the results of the Company’s exploration programs will not conform with the Company’s expectations, and will not be sufficient to support mineral resources or mineral reserves at the AGM or be sufficient to include in the Company’s updated life of mine plan; the Company’s expectations; that the Company may not undertake planned future mining or exploration, or that such future mining or exploration will not be sufficient to support mineral resources or mineral reserves at the AGM; that the JV will approve the Company’s proposed exploration and mining programs; the Company’s and/or the AGM’s operations may be curtailed or halted entirely as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, whether as a result of governmental or regulatory law or pronouncement, or otherwise; that the doré produced at the AGM may not be able to be refined at expected levels, on expected terms or at all; that the Company and/or the AGM will experience increased operating costs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; that the AGM may not be able to source necessary inputs on commercially reasonable terms, or at all; the Company’s and the AGM’s responses to the COVID-19 pandemic may not be successful in continuing its operations in the ordinary course; AGM has a limited operating history and is subject to risks associated with establishing new mining operations; sustained increases in costs, or decreases in the availability, of commodities consumed or otherwise used by the Company may adversely affect the Company; actual production, costs, returns and other economic and financial performance may vary from the Company’s estimates in response to a variety of factors, many of which are not within the Company’s control; adverse geotechnical and geological conditions (including geotechnical failures) may result in operating delays and lower throughput or recovery, closures or damage to mine infrastructure; the ability of the Company to treat the number of tonnes planned, recover valuable materials, remove deleterious materials and process ore, concentrate and tailings as planned is dependent on a number of factors and assumptions which may not be present or occur as expected; the Company’s operations may encounter delays in or losses of production due to equipment delays or the availability of equipment; the Company’s operations are subject to continuously evolving legislation, compliance with which may be difficult, uneconomic or require significant expenditures; the Company may be unsuccessful in attracting and retaining key personnel; labour disruptions could adversely affect the Company’s operations; the Company’s business is subject to risks associated with operating in a foreign country; risks related to the Company’s use of contractors; the hazards and risks normally encountered in the exploration, development and production of gold; the Company’s operations are subject to environmental hazards and compliance with applicable environmental laws and regulations; the Company’s operations and workforce are exposed to health and safety risks; unexpected costs and delays related to, or the failure of the Company to obtain, necessary permits could impede the Company’s operations; the Company’s title to exploration, development and mining interests can be uncertain and may be contested; the Company’s properties may be subject to claims by various community stakeholders; risks related to limited access to infrastructure and water; the Company’s exploration programs may not successfully expand its current mineral reserves or replace them with new reserves; the Company’s revenues are dependent on the market prices for gold, which have experienced significant recent fluctuations; the Company may not be able to secure additional financing when needed or on acceptable terms; and the Company’s primary asset is held through a joint venture, which exposes the Company to risks inherent to joint ventures, including disagreements with joint venture partners and similar risks. 

Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, you are cautioned that this list is not exhaustive and there may be other factors that the Company has not identified. Furthermore, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements included in, or incorporated by reference in, this news release if these beliefs, estimates and opinions or other circumstances should change, except as otherwise required by applicable law.

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 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.
