Massawa Mine Banner

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.
