The Linge IUP is 80% owned by Barisan Gold and is solely operated by the Company. The IUP contains the Abong gold deposit which at a 0.4g/t gold cut-off, has an estimated an NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource of 8.5 million tonnes of 1.49g/t gold and 10.7 g/t silver, containing 405,000 ounces of gold and 2.9 million ounces of silver. The IUP also contains the Bahu, Middle Ise-Ise and Lower Ise-Ise gold-copper porphyry prospects. Linge continues to work with local government authorities seeking forestry borrow-use permits, which would allow Linge to resume drilling at Abong and other gold-copper porphyries.
The Takengon IUP is 75% owned by Barisan Gold and is solely operated by the Company. The IUP contains the Collins epithermal gold prospect as well as the Semelit, West Semelit and Tanga gold-copper porphyry prospects.
Barisan Gold also wishes to advise that it has just begun exploratory drilling at the Collins epithermal gold prospect, located within the Takengon IUP. The previous owner of the project had conducted mapping and sampling at Collins over the past few years, the results of which were positive and identified narrow high-grade gold veins at surface. Recent mapping by Barisan Gold has confirmed and has re-defined at least two sub-parallel quartz vein zones which contain high grade gold besides a low grade 1.6-3.2 meter wide main quartz vein. The Collins prospect is located in Areal Penggunaan Lain (“APL”), which means an area that is not classified as forest pursuant to a decree of the Ministry of Forestry. The initial program consists of 2,000 meters of drilling to test the continuity of the veins with grade at depth. The initial drilling program is expected to cost less than $300,000 and will count towards the work commitment under the Takengon IUP documentation. Barisan Gold strives to conduct economically sensible drilling that targets high probability targets while conserving the Company’s financial resources.
