Tengrela South Gold Project


The flagship Tengrela South Gold Project covers 285km2 of ground in far north Côte d’Ivoire, 30km south and along strike of Perseus Mining’s (ASX: PRU) Sissingué Gold Mine which has produced more than 500,000oz gold since 2018; and 10km north of the Atex lithium discovery.

Historic drilling returned gold mineralisation including results of:

- 8m at 30.0g/t gold from 52m
- 14m at 5.9g/t gold from 60m and
- 40m at 1.0g/t gold from 4m.

More than 55,000m of drilling has been completed from 2010 to date over five prospects including the Podio, Logbog and the Zaguinasso prospects. The most significant amount of drilling completed within the project area has been undertaken over the Podio prospect.

Tengrela South gold prospects

Desert Metals is completing aircore drilling at Tengrela South – first results are expected in Q1 CY2024.


The Tengrela South Project area is located within the northern portion of the gold-prolific Syama-Boundiali Greenstone Belt that hosts numerous multi-million-ounce gold deposits including Sissingué, Syama and Tongon. This belt exhibits numerous geological similarities to the well-explored multi-million-ounce Ashanti Gold Belt in Ghana where gold is discovered within Birimian volcanics and metasediments proximal to granite contacts.
