The Massawa gold project is located within the Kounemba permit in eastern Senegal which geologically lies within the 150 kilometre long Mako greenstone belt.
The Mako greenstone belt comprises mafic-ultramafic and felsic volcanic rocks intruded by granitoids. A regional crustal scale shear zone, the Main Transcurrent Shear Zone (MTZ) with a northeast-southwest trend, exploits the lithological contact between the Mako and the Dialé-Daléma supergroups and is the host structure to mineralisation at Massawa. Randgold controls the groundholding over more than 50% of the strike extent of this very prospective belt.
