Exploration Results Meyas Sand Gold Project - Sudan

27.05.2024  |  GlobeNewswire


Perth, Western Australia/ May 27, 2024/Perseus Mining Ltd. (ASX/TSX: PRU) is pleased to provide an update on exploration activities and studies completed to date at its Meyas Sands Gold Project (MSGP) in Sudan.

The full release with drill results tables and figures is available on, and

Since acquiring the MSGP in May 2022, Perseus has focussed on the development of the Galat Sufur South (GSS) deposit, and when possible, has conducted infill resource definition drilling, sterilisation trenching and drilling, a passive seismic survey, hydrogeological, metallurgical, and geotechnical work in preparation for the inclusion of data in a Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) Study and a Final Investment Decision (FID) for the project.

With the outbreak of hostilities in Sudan in April 2023, exploration activities on the MSGP site were temporarily suspended but recently, Perseus's personnel have re-established facilities to support on-site exploration activities and in-house security teams at the MSGP camp.

With this restoration work well advanced, Perseus is pleased to announce that drilling at the MSGP recommenced on 20 May 2024. This initial drill program is aimed at testing high priority exploration targets in the vicinity of the GSS deposit to follow up the drilling results that have been received to date. These results have confirmed the grade and tenor of the GSS deposit, and while incomplete, are considered very encouraging. More significant results include:

Perseus's Chairman and CEO Jeff Quartermaine said:

"When Perseus acquired the Meyas Sand Gold Project in 2022 through the acquisition of Orca Gold Inc., we were very excited by the prospects of developing a large scale, low cost, long life gold mine in northern Sudan that would add a further high quality mine to Perseus's multi mine, multi-jurisdiction asset portfolio.

The outbreak of hostilities in the south and west of Sudan in 2023 represented a serious setback for Perseus's ambitions for MSGP, but the recent recommencement of drilling activities is considered a positive step forward that hopefully will lead to the development of MSGP when peace is finally restored throughout the country.

The confirmatory drilling results that have been achieved by our team to date at MSGP are very encouraging and we are now looking forward to returning further strong results that will lead to the conversion of the published Foreign Reserve Estimate for MSGP into an updated Ore Reserve reported in accordance with JORC 2012 on which a FEED study can be confidently based."

It is intended that as soon as practical, Perseus will convert the published Foreign Reserve Estimate for the Meyas Sand Project, into an Ore Reserve prepared in accordance with the requirements of JORC 2012. Exploration drilling will be also conducted on the broader Block B exploration license.

This announcement has been approved for release by Perseus's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Quartermaine.
