  • Borehole LADD008 intersects 43.10 metres grading 1.68 g/t Au, 0.78 metres grading 21.8 g/t Au and 14.98 metres grading 3.62 g/t Au, including 3.09 metres grading 13.28 g/t Au

Loncor Resources Inc. (“Loncor” or the “Company“) (TSX: “LN”; OTCQX: “LONCF”; FSE: “LO51”) is pleased to announce further significant assay results from its drilling program within its 84.68% owned Imbo Project in the eastern part of the Ngayu greenstone belt in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The final infill core hole within the Adumbi open pit shell, LADD008 intersected 43.10 metres grading 1.68 g/t gold, 0.78 metres grading 21.8 g/t gold and 14.98 metres grading 3.62 g/t gold including 3.09 metres grading 13.28 g/t gold.

Mineralized sections for borehole LADD008 are summarised in the table below:

From (m)To (m)Intersected
Width (m)
Grade (g/t) Au

Borehole LADD008 intersected the mineralization at a vertical depth of 272 metres below surface and within the southeastern boundary of the US$1,500 open pit shell (see Figures 2 and 3 below), and had an inclination of minus 65 degrees and azimuth of 218 degrees at the start of hole and regular measurements of inclination and azimuth were taken at 30 metre intervals down the hole. All core was orientated, and it is estimated that the true widths of the mineralised sections are 62% of the intersected width. All intercepted grades are uncut.

Drilling is now focussed on the downdip/down plunge extensions below the open pit shell where the gold mineralization remains open. The deepest core hole of this drilling campaign, LADD009 has now been completed and assays are awaited. Boreholes LADD011 and LADD012 are currently being drilled (LADD010 was abandoned before reaching target depth due to mechanical problems and LADD012 is being drilled in its place).

Commenting on these latest drilling results, Loncor President Peter Cowley said: “We continue to be impressed with the drill results at Adumbi. All four completed infill holes within the open pit shell have intersected significant gold mineralization with an improvement in grade and thickness compared to the previous block model, and further studies will now be undertaken to quantify this increase in terms of mineral resources within the open pit shell.”

The objective of the current drilling program at Adumbi is to outline additional mineral resources to the current inferred mineral resource of 2.5 million ounces of gold on Loncor’s 84.68%-owned Imbo Project which contains the Adumbi, Kitenge and Manzako deposits (inferred mineral resources of 30.65 million tonnes grading 2.54 g/t Au).
