Toronto, Ontario, June 12, 2019 -Compass Gold Corp. (TSX-V: CVB) (Compass or the Company) announces that it has started its follow-up drill program at the Farabakoura artisanal workings on the Ouassada exploration permit on its Sikasso Property in Southern Mali.
Compass CEO, Larry Phillips, commented, 'This next 3,000 m RC program at Farabakoura will be building on our previously successful drilling results as well as our geophysical surveys over this area of intense artisanal gold mining. Our near term objective is to increase the strike length of known drilled mineralization, and to delineate the extent of bedrock gold mineralization identified in the near-surface from numerous artisanal gold-bearing veins. At the same time, our technical team has completed a high-resolution ground magnetic survey on two prospects on our Sankarani permit area and we're awaiting assay results from the surface samples they've collected from the Yanfolila South artisanal pits. We are looking to complete as much of this work as possible before the rainy season begins at the end of the month.'
