Dar es Salaam, Tanzania – September 28, 2016 – Handeni Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “Handeni Gold”) (OTC Pink: HNDI) is pleased to report on activities related to its exploration licenses in the United Republic of Tanzania.
Geological and exploration model successful.
Based on intensive research and ground application, the company accepted its current geological model as the basis from which to direct its exploration activities in the Handeni district for the foreseeable future. There is a high rate of discovery of gold mineralization applying the model and a substantial number of drill targets (5) generated by the company over the past two years. HNDI is now in the process of reducing the size of its four 2010 allocated exploration licenses by a further 50% as required by the 2010 Tanzanian Mining Act. The company can confidently select the remaining areas as a result of an effective exploration program, retaining ground with the highest potential.
Illegal Miners removed and analyses confirm significant gold from mine dumps.
Following two years of persistent interference from illegal artisanal miners recurrently occupying the company’s most promising anomalies and illegally mining on the same, the company is in a position to report that the Tanzanian government rendered its assistance in removing the illegal artisanal groups. This is enabling HNDI to continue our exploration programs effectively. The activities of the illegal small scale mining operations on some of our target areas confirmed the presence of mineable gold on these targets. The sizes and continuity of this gold mineralization can however only be confirmed by drilling.
Twelve grab samples (12 kg each) on illegal artisanal mine dumps yielded gold values of between 2 and 7 grams per ton. These mine dumps are providing minimum values for gold as they represent an un-concentrated mixture of “ore zone”, hanging wall and foot wall material. HNDI is currently planning an exploration shaft to enable the company to gain a better understanding of the nature of the structural geology on the Mjembe-1 project as well as to conduct bulk sampling on the mineralization zone.
Whole rock samples collected from a 60 m long and up to 10 m deep trench dug on our Mjembe-1 target yielded gold values of up to 6,1 g/t on specific horizons. The trench provided the necessary geological input to effectively determine the position of the exploration shaft.
