Adamus Resources Limited - High grade gold discovered at Akropon


    PERTH, Western Australia, Nov. 8 /CNW/ - Emerging gold producer Adamus
Resources Limited (TSXV, ASX: ADU) has again demonstrated further drilling
success at its Ghana gold project, with new results from its Akropon tenement
revealing more high grade gold mineralisation at shallow depths.
    The results follow recent exploration success at the Abosso and Avrebo
deposits. This provides a further boost for Adamus in its strategy to continue
expanding its established resource base at its Southern Ashanti Gold Project
(SAGP) in Ghana, whilst it achieves the necessary permits to commence mine

    Results from drilling at Akropon include:

      -  12m @ 1.17g/t
      -  8m @ 11.7g/t
      -  12m @ 13.8g/t
      -  12m @ 1.36g/t

    The RC drilling program of was completed in September initially, testing
the Akropon target to about 50 metres depth over 500 metres strike. Assays
have been received for initial 4 metre composite samples, with intercepts
including 12m @ 1.17g/t, 8m @ 11.7g/t, 12m @ 13.8g/t and 12m @ 1.36g/t. Assays
are awaited for one metre re-split samples of mineralised intercepts. Results
are currently being assessed, but early indications are that with further
drilling Akropon will contribute a modest open pit resource to the SAGP.
    At the current gold price, this new discovery could again add
significantly to the increasingly robust economics of the SAGP.
    Adamus Resources is making big inroads in the development of it's the
SAGP, recently announcing good progress with permit applications and on-ground
development work in Ghana. The Company remains on track to realising the
potential of the SAGP, where it has discovered a growing resource of 17Mt @
2.2g/t for 1,200,000 oz (Measured and Indicated) and 6.3Mt @ 1.9g/t for
390,000 oz (Inferred).
