This area is located 500 metres west of the Mampon gold deposit and is outside the forest reserve boundary. The prospect lies within the 40 square kilometre Square kilometre (U.S. spelling: square kilometer), symbol km², is a decimal multiple of the SI unit of surface area, the square metre, one of the SI derived units. 1 km² is equal to:
Twenty-nine trenches, extending over a cumulative length of 1,512 metres, were excavated in a northeast-southwesterly direction across four newly discovered mineralized min·er·al·ize

Good gold values were encountered along 580 metres of this strike length. Of the 1,008 samples assayed, 362 samples returned values above 0.5 grams of gold per tonne, with the average of these being 2.04 g/t. Twenty-five samples assayed greater than 5.0 grams of gold per tonne showing the existence of high-grade zones such as are found at Mampon. In addition, the mineralized zones exhibited good continuity from trench to trench. The results of this work are presented in the following table:

From this data, Birim believes that Aboronye could host mineralised zones which are lower in grade but higher in tonnage TONNAGE, mar. law. The capacity of a ship or vessel.
2. The act of congress of March 2, 1799, s. 64, 1 Story's L. U. S. 630, directs that to ascertain the tonnage of any ship or vessel, the surveyor, &c. than at Mampon. If shown to be economic, the ore could be trucked to Ashanti's heap leach facility 20 kilometres to the west at Ayanfuri. These results and corresponding maps are posted on Birim's web site at: www.birim.com
Ashanti is keen to follow up on these results and has prepared 36 drill sites for a reverse circulation drilling programme which is scheduled to begin shortly. Given the encouraging results obtained at Aboronye, Ashanti will be carrying out trenching on two other prospects within the 40 square kilometre area, namely Adukrom and Akwaboa, located to the south of Aboronye and also outside the forest reserve.
