TRX Gold’s Near Surface Drill Results: 14 m @ 3.5 g/t incl. 3.0 m @ 10.9 g/t Gold


Anfield and Eastern Porphyry Zones Show Early Promise

TORONTO, May 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TRX Gold Corporation (TSX: TNX) (NYSE American: TRX) (the “Company” or “TRX Gold”) is pleased to provide an update on the drilling results from the Anfield and Eastern Porphyry Zones. The results demonstrate the potential for the Anfield and Eastern Porphyry Zones to add to resources and a new mining area on the Buckreef Gold project. These results are part of the Company’s larger 2023 exploration and brownfield drilling campaign totalling over 10,000 meters, completed for fiscal 2023, that has the objective of identifying new gold targets and trends, as well as converting Mineral Resources to Mineral Reserves.

The project’s high-priority Anfield and Eastern Porphyry zones are at the northern end of a 3-kilometer-long zone of identified gold mineralization that is subparallel to the Buckreef Main Zone (Figure 1).


  • Hole BMDD298 (Eastern Porphyry) intersected 14.0 m grading at 3.48 g/t, including3.0 m grading at 10.96 g/t from 27.0 m, and25.23 m grading @ 1.62 g/t Au from 47 m.
  • Hole BMDD300 (Eastern Porphyry) intersected 3.61 m grading at 6.80 g/t, from 33.65 m.
  • Hole BMDD297 (Eastern Porphyry) intersected 14.70 m grading at 1.22 g/t, from 98.80 m.
  • Hole AFDD001 (Anfield) intersected 2.94 m grading at 13.74 g/t, from 43.00 m.
  • Hole AFDD004 (Anfield) intersected 6.09 m grading at 1.41 g/t, from 32.45 m.

Full results are tabulated below and shown in Figure 2.

“We are very pleased to announce these highly anticipated drill results. The grades we are seeing are precisely what we had hoped for and are in line with our geologists' expectations. These two zones represent a great exploration opportunity for the Buckreef Gold property as we continue to test the three-kilometer trend of demonstrated gold potential. These zones run parallel and in close proximity to our current Main Zone, from which we have been successfully mining over the last 18 months. These results demonstrate the potential for continued resource expansion and a new mining area on the Buckreef Gold property.”, commented Stephen Mullowney, TRX Gold Chief Executive Officer.

The results summarized in this release are from the Eastern Porphyry and Anfield zones, located approximately 250 m to 700 metres east of the Buckreef Main Zone. Intersections reported here are a down-hole length and may not represent true width, however the true width is estimated to be between 50% - 60% of the length.

Significance of Results

The intercepts confirm multiple zones of strong mineralisation towards the south-west of the known Eastern Porphyry deposit and the first diamond drill hole intersections on the Anfield Zone. Both mineralized zones are in close proximity to the Buckreef Main Zone and present an opportunity (assuming exploration success) to host mineral resources outside of the Buckreef Main Zone. Both zones exhibit gold mineralization that is hosted in sheared mafic volcanic and porphyry lithologies. Many characteristics of the high-grade mineralization observed in the Main Zone are present in the Eastern Porphyry and Anfield zones.

The Eastern Porphyry contains a ‘historic’ 2014 mineral resource of: Measured category 0.09 mt grading at 1.20 g/t and Indicated category of 1.02 mt grading at 1.17 g/t for a combined M&I in-situ gold content of 41,705 ounces. In addition, there were Inferred mineral resources of 1.24 mt grading at 1.39 g/t containing an estimated 55,380 ounces of gold (please refer to Update National Instrument 43-101 Independent Technical Report on the Buckreef Project in Tanzania for Tanzanian Royalty Exploration Corporation, dated February 24, 2014, found on

The latest drill results confirm zones of high-grade mineralization close to surface. Initial results from the Anfield Zone are very promising and highlighted by Hole AFDD001 which intersected 2.94 m grading at 13.74 g/t, from 43.00 m. This hole was specifically laid out to intersect the area where three high grade grab samples (assaying 37.52 g/t, 28.55 g/t and 14.42 g/t respectively) had been retrieved from artisanal mine shafts (as reported on June 21, 2021).

Ongoing Planning

The drilling program for the Eastern Porphyry and Anfield zones is currently paused and will resume in the near future. The brief pause will be used for the planning of the next high-priority drill targets as follow-up to the above results. The Company’s intention is to develop a drilling program that will allow for rapid development of the area in order to potentially delineate near surface mineral reserves for mining in the short term.

Qualified Person

Mr. Andrew Mark Cheatle, P.Geo., MBA, ARSM, is the Company’s Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 “Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects” (“NI 43-101”) and has reviewed and assumes responsibility for the scientific and technical content in this press release.

Sample Protocol QA/QC

The sample chain of custody is managed by the Buckreef geology team on site. Reported results are from diamond drilled core samples.  Intervals of core to be analyzed are split into half using a mechanized core cutter, with one half sent to the Laboratory for geochemical analysis and the remaining half kept in storage for future reference and uses. Diamond drilled core has been a HQ size and recoveries are consistently 100% across all drill holes intercept reported.

Sampling and analytical procedures are subject to a comprehensive quality assurance and quality control program. The QAQC program involves insertion of duplicate samples, blanks and certified reference materials in the sample stream. Gold analyses are performed by standard fire assaying protocols using a 50-gram charge with atomic absorption (AAS) finish and a gravimetric finish performed for assays greater than 10 grams per tonne.

Sample Preparation and analysis are performed by independent SGS Laboratory in Mwanza, Tanzania. SGS Laboratory is ISO17025 accredited and employs a Laboratory Information Management System for sample tracking, quality control and reporting.
