Africa-focused Alecto Minerals (ALO) says it is ‘on track’ to establish a maiden resource estimate this year for the Kerboule gold prospect in West Africa’s Djibo gold belt in northern Burkina Faso, while the AIM-quoted company actively canvasses prospective partners for its Kossanto project in Mali, potentially hosting more than 500,000 oz. of gold. Alecto, which also has joint ventures with fully-listed Centamin (CEY) at two gold prospects in Ethiopia, acquired Kerboule in November in a £350,000 all-share deal and now says analysis of previous drilling data over the 3,995-sq.-km. project has identified three discrete deposits with ‘numerous vein sets’.
