The Predictive Discovery Ltd (ASX: PDI) share price is rocketing in early afternoon trade, up 19.5% to 9.1 cents.

Predictive Discovery is an Australian gold exploration company with a range of projects located in West Africa. 

Below we take a look at the ASX resource company’s latest drill results.

What drill results did the company announce?

Predictive Discovery reported promising gold results from 4 diamond drill holes at its Bankan Project in Guinea.

Drilling at NE Bankan intersected broad zones of high grade gold at depth, returning 44 metres at 8.0 grams of gold per tonne (g/t) Au from 265 metres, which the company said included a “very high-grade intersection” of 17 metres at 18.1 g/t Au from 274 metres.

Predictive Discovery also announced that 2 shallow drill holes at Bankan Creek intersected high-grade gold mineralisation.

The explorer said this supports the continuity of the mineralised zones and additional ounces to its Maiden Resource Estimate. It expects that estimate in the September quarter.

Commenting on the results, Predictive Discovery’s managing director, Paul Roberts said:

These outstanding new results are further confirmation of the continuity and grade of the NE Bankan and Bankan Creek gold deposits. The intersection of 44m at 8.0g/t Au from around 240m vertical depth is an absolute standout, better than any intercept we have obtained so far in the deposit.

Roberts said the company has 4 more deep diamond drill holes with results yet to be reported at NE Bankan. They also said infill diamond drilling at Bankan Creek is ongoing. The last holes are expected to be completed by mid-July.

“Following receipt and interpretation of the last results, the company will move onto the Maiden Resource estimation, in keeping with our September quarter timetable,” Roberts said.
