The west Africa-focused gold explorer, Hummingbird Resources, rose in early trading after revealing positive results in southern Liberia.
After taking 13,000 samples, the group has announced a new gold discovery at its Sackor site, close to the already established Dugbe deposit.
Hummingbird is also trenching at its Tiehnpo site, which is where the highest levels of gold have been found amongst all of the company’s targets.
The Chief Executive, Dan Betts, said: ‘During Q2 Hummingbird Resources has collected in excess of 13,000 samples for analysis across various targets and projects within our portfolio, which is a staggering achievement.
‘Of particular note are the large soil anomalies emerging at Tiehnpo and Nemo Creek, which provide the company with an exciting pipeline of potential future drill targets, whilst the drilling in the Dugbe 1 Project area continues to produce encouraging results.’
