Adamus Resources hits high grade gold in initial drilling at Salman South in Ghana

Adamus Resources hits high grade gold in initial drilling at Salman South in Ghana The first of the drill holes by Adamus Resources (ASX: ADU) at the Salman South deposit have intersected significant sulphide mineralisation.

Results include:

- 8 metres at 4.37 g/t gold;
- 10 metres at 4.18 g/t gold; and
- 15 metres at 4.18 g/t gold.

Exploration drilling of the sulphide ore zones below the existing oxide pits along the Salman Trend commenced in August 2010.

By early December approximately 70 reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drill holes had been completed at the Teberu 04, Nugget Hill 01, Salman Central and Salman South for about 7,000m.

Salman South is within the the Nzema Gold Project, located in south-western Ghana.

The project consists of a contiguous block of Adamus tenements and options covering approximately 665 square kilometres.

The tenements are accessible via 80km of sealed roads from the major port city of Takoradi and in close proximity to the major mining centre at Tarkwa.

The project is situated on the southern extension of the Ashanti Gold Belt, host to over 100Moz of gold.

The tenements themselves lie just 40km south of the world class deposits of Bogosu (3.3Moz) and Prestea (10.7Moz). Adamus' area hosts both the Salman and Anwia deposits.

At the Teberu 04 pit 10 RC and 7 diamond holes have now been drilled. Sulphide mineralisation has been intersected in a continuous zone that extends for over 300m and has been tested to a vertical depth of about 50m. Additional deeper drilling is now planned.

At the Salman Central 01 pit diamond holes will be drilled at 50m spacing to test the sulphide zones to a depth of 100m to allow a new sulphide resource estimate to be calculated in 2011. More exploration diamond drilling will continue at Salman South and Salman Central.

Preparation for reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the Aliva oxide prospect is well advanced and soil sampling will recommence following a late end to the current wet season.
