Bompela Project - 85% Rumble 15% Canyon
Rumble Resources Ltd has a joint venture and with Canyon Resources Ltd (ASX: CAY) for the Bompela Project in Burkina Faso.
The Project is easily accessible by sealed road, being approximately 125 km northwest of the capital Ouagadougou. The licences are adjacent to the Reo Project operated by Middle Island Resources Ltd (ASX: MDI).
The Derosa Project is structurally complex with several large scale north-south and northeast-southwest trending shear zones interpreted across the project area from airborne magnetics data. The main shear zones are interpreted to represent Birimian greenstone belts consisting of mafic to felsic volcanics and sediments which are surrounded by granitoid intrusions. Most of the project area is covered by a 1 to 10m thick veneer of lateritised transported gravel and sand. No evidence of previous exploration has been found in the project area and Rumble considers Derosa to represent an exciting grass roots gold exploration opportunity.
