The Ianna Gold Project is located in Guyana’s Northwest Mining District, about 20km southeast from Alicanto’s ongoing exploration operations at the Arakaka Main Trend and Xenopsaris targets located within the Arakaka Gold Project.

Results of the Initial drilling across five target areas confirmed extensive and pervasive alteration encountered are typical of a large-scale mineralising system, and the occurrence of visible gold and high- grade niche grades within the mineralised zones indicate potential for increasing volumes of higher grade material with further definition of the geometry of the intrusive body and structural complexities associated with that favourable lithologic feature.
Reconnaissance drilling returned significant intercepts across multiple prospects. Work is now focused on integrating datasets and prioritising prospect areas for future drilling targeting high grade shoots and to delineate areas of resource potential within the licence area. Trenching and Auger drilling will be ongoing in support of prospect assessment.
The broad zones of mineralisation identified provide considerable support to aggressively expand exploration activities into other prospects within the Project area with the potential to add further tenements within the Project perimeter.
The Project has excellent infrastructure, including existing camp facilities, an existing airstrip and river port landing on the property, and can be accessed by road from the Arakaka Project area.
