Kobo Resources Supports the Structural Interpretation of Mineralisation at Kossou with Strong Gold Results of 2.67 g/t Au over 14 m and 1.68 g/t Au over 13 m at the Jagger Zone
QUEBEC CITY, QC – Kobo Resources Inc. (“Kobo” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: KRI) is pleased to announce strong gold results from trenching at the Jagger Zone, which support the ongoing structural interpretation work as part of continued exploration efforts at the Company’s 100%-owned Kossou Gold Project (“Kossou”).
Edward Gosselin, CEO and Director of Kobo commented: “With the confirmation of the presence of cross-cutting sets of gold bearing quartz veins throughout the Jagger Zone trending WNW-ESE, and E-W within the core of the zone, our team is extremely pleased with these findings. This further validates our initial assessment of the potential of the Jagger Zone, as well as highlights the complexity of the potential system hosting gold mineralisation. Additional trenching is underway at the Jagger and Kadie Zones to further evaluate structural controls and the impact of these important mineralised vein sets.”
Strong Gold Results from Trenching at the Jagger Zone
- 1.01 g/t Au over 4 metres (“m”)
- 1.68 g/t Au over 13 m including 2.37 g/t Au over 7 m
- 2.67 g/t Au over 14 m including 3.38 g/t Au over 10 m
Trench KTR047 was excavated to evaluate structural controls to gold mineralisation based on observations by the Company’s field staff and Dr. Tourigny during the recent structural evaluation efforts at Kossou. The presence of cross-cutting sets of gold bearing quartz veins throughout the Jagger Zone was evaluated. Abundant high-grade gold vein sets, with individual 1 m samples up to 14.30 g/t Au, trending WNW-ESE and E-W within the core of the Jagger Zone has been confirmed. Assay results indicate multiple zones of cross-cutting mineralised quartz vein sets along the N-S strike extent of the mineralised Jagger shear zone. The Jagger Zone is defined by a 100+ m wide, 1.4+ km long N-S oriented shear zone mineralised along the dominant foliation plane with N-S brecciated gold bearing gold veins. Gold mineralisation is enhanced by cross cutting veins sets as exposed in KTR047.
Previously reported results at the Kadie Zone show similar structural controls. At the Road Cut Zone, similar structural associations are also observed as indicated by strong results recently released (see press release dated November 1, 2023) that also tested the WNW-ESE and E-W cross-cutting veins.

Q3 2023 Filings and Auditor Change
The Company has filed its interim consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 as well as its management's discussion and analysis for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023. The Company further reports that following the resignation of BDO Canada LLP as its auditor, the Company has nominated MNP LLP as its successor.
Sampling, QAQC, and Analytical Procedures
All samples were analysed at the SGS facility in Yamoussoukro using a 50 g Fire Assay with an AA finish (FAA505 with prep code PRP87). All QAQC control samples returned values within acceptable limits.
