The company comes into focus after announcing gold intersections from drilling in its mine Côte d’Ivoire.
Let’s take a closer look at today’s news.
Why the Tietto share price is rising
In a statement to the ASX, Tietto Minerals advised it has made “multiple, high-grade gold drill intercepts” at its Abujar Gold Project in the West African nation. Highlights include:
a 29m wide ore containing 4.46g of gold per tonne, which includes a 17m wide section containing 7.11g of gold per tonne.
a 2m wide ore containing 18.6g of gold per tonne.
a 3m wide ore containing 9.39g of gold per tonne.
an 8m wide ore containing 6.92g of gold per tonne.
The company says it still has $52 million in liquid assets and as such can both fast-track and grow the Abujar gold mine.
Specifically, on fast-tracking the site, Tietto says it should be able to release the definitive study for the site by the second quarter of FY22. It is also in the midst of negotiations with the Ivorian government regarding final approvals.
The results have impressed investors, judging by today’s Tietto share price movement.
Tietto managing director Dr Caigen Wang said
Our infill and extensional drilling program at Abujar has again delivered more high‐grade gold intercepts that will deliver increases in resource confidence and resource growth.
[We have] successfully confirmed gold mineralisation at or above expectations as we have closed up the inferred drill pattern to Indicated Resource spacing at these deposits.
