Mako Gold commenced a 1,500m reverse circulation scout drill program at the Tchaga North prospect within the company's 90%-owned Napie Project in Cote d'Ivoire.

The drilling will target three high-grade gold zones identified by recent mapping and trenching.

The program aims to explore the Discovery Zone, the Double Zone, and the Deep Artisanal site.

Trenching at the Discovery zone yielded results such as 4m at 3.97g/t Au, including 1m at 14.80g/t Au.
