THE HAMAMA WEST DEPOSIT
Hamama West has been the focus on Aton’s recent exploration efforts. Hamama West has been deeply weathered into a soft, friable oxidized gossan blanket, referred to as a gold-oxide cap. This gold-oxide cap is approximately 900m long, up to 110 metres wide, has an average vertical depth of 35 metres, and remains open along strike. Preliminary metallurgical (bottle-roll) test results on the gold-oxide cap returned up to 92.2% Au and 65% Ag, while mineralization extends below the gold-oxide cap and has been traced to a depth of 180 metres and remains open.
