OKO WEST PROJECT
OKO WEST PROJECT
Reunion Gold’s Oko West Project is located immediately due south of G2 Goldfield’s “Oko” project, which has been the subject of an active drill program in 2020. A recently discovered 2 km long gold-in-soil anomaly at the Oko West Project coincides with a north-south striking shear zone identified from airborne geophysical surveys. Volcanic and sedimentary rocks underlain the Project area, crosscut by north-south oriented faults and shears. These shears are related to local tectonic events that introduced gold mineralization along structures parallel to the basement contact located on the eastern edge of the Project area.
The Oko West Project is in the Cuyuni Mining District, some 95 km west of Georgetown and easily accessed by bush roads and trails from the city of Bartica or by boat using the Cuyuni river (Figure G1).
Mineral rights and agreement
The Oko West Project comprises an assembly of nine medium-scale mining permits covering an area of 9,420 acres, held by a Guyanese entrepreneur. Reunion entered into an agreement entitling it to conduct exploration activities and acquire a 100% interest in the Project until August 2026.
Geology and mineralisation
The Oko West Project area is underlain by a greenstone assemblage of Proterozoic rocks of the Barama Group consisting of volcanics and clastic sediments intruded by granitic plutons, strongly deformed by at least one tectonic event, and metamorphosed to greenschist facies (Figure O1). Known gold mineralization appears to be preferably focused along structures at the contact of volcanic and gneiss/granite bodies and have been artisanally mined in alluvial flats and pits in saprolite material.
In 2019, Reunion completed geological mapping and a stream sediment sampling of relevant drainage in the Project area, along with a detailed airborne magnetic and radiometric survey. As a result, Reunion has now embarked upon an exploration program in 2020 that will include further trenching and a first 1,500 m drill program. The objective of this new exploration program is to confirm both our geological interpretation and explore the trend with a mineralized strike of at least 2 km long.
