Sama Boasts New Developments at W. Africa Mine

Montreal-headquartered Sama Resources Inc. (TSX-Venture:SME) proudly announced Thursday that a second hole drilled at Yepleu Sector 1 in the Ivory Coast, West Africa has yielded hopeful results.

A follow-up on the mineralized zone intersected on the first deep hole returned a mineralized zone of 54 metres of disseminated to semi-massive and massive sulphide material from 585 m to 639 m from the surface.

A news release trumpeting the discovery says assays results are pending.

According to Sama CEO Marc-Antoine Audet, “Sama’s newly discovered mineralization at 600 m depth at Yepleu Sector 1 within the Yacouba Intrusive Complex which hosts the large nickel-palladium Platreef deposit) is further evidence that the Yacouba intrusion system has the potential to host a significant amount of high-grade nickel-copper-cobalt- palladium mineralization in reservoirs and pods that are yet to be discovered.”
