In addition to the Company’s flagship Diamba Sud project, Chesser holds interests in Diamba Nord and two applications totalling over 1,000km2.
This regional licence is located within the Birimian Kédougou-Kéniéba Inlier in the south Eastern corner of Senegal.
The Diamba Nord project consists of two exploration tenements totalling approximately 242km2. The Project is located in eastern Senegal (Figure 1).
The Project sits within the northern part of the Mako Belt, a series of greenstone volcanic and sedimentary rocks. The Mako Belt hosts Senegal’s first commercial gold mining operation, Sabadola, as well as numerous other million-ounce gold operations; Mako and Massawa.
Exploration work to date has consisted of rock chip geochemistry, mapping and auger sampling. Numerous lower level gold geochemical anomalies have been detected, and pending completion of reconnaissance of the southern block, follow-up exploration activities are expected.
Morichou – Application
The Morichou application overlies 35km of the Sabodala Shear Zone on the Mako Belt. Limited historical exploration has been undertaken over the area and further work is required to assess the potential of the tenement.
Bondala – Application
The Bondala application has artisanal workings on it and will be evaluated once the tenement has been granted.
