About Omai Gold Mines
Omai Gold Mines Corp. holds a 100% interest in the Omai gold project in Guyana, that produced over 3.7 million ounces of gold between 1993 and 2005.
The property hosts two gold deposits, the shear-hosted Wenot Deposit and the adjacent intrusive-hosted Gilt Creek Deposit. The updated NI43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate, released in October 2022, more than doubles the initial Resource announced in January 2022 by expanding the Wenot Mineral Resource and incorporating the Gilt Creek Deposit that lies below a former pit that produced 2.4 million ounces of gold.
Omai Gold has completed a total of 16,648 meters of diamond drilling on the Omai property, as well as trenching and mapping of several exploration targets, and a geochemical survey that commenced along a 4 km strike projection to the east along the Wenot shear corridor. In 2023, the initial program will focus on drilling the main nearby exploration targets that we believe hold significant potential for new discoveries on this gold-rich property. Work will continue on expanding the known resource at Wenot, both along strike and on the flanks, where 2022 drilling provided evidence of extensions.
