The Yakare orogenic vein gold prospect is located within and surrounding the Yakare village in the northern part of the license area. It is 17 km NE of Himbol village, and 5 km north of the Kofot VMS prospect.
The Yakare orogenic gold veins are oriented N-S and are associated with granitic dikes that cut volcanic and sedimentary rocks. The strata are intercalated mafic, intermediate and felsic tuffs, stratabound FeOx-clay altered units, basalts, exhalites, laminated- carbonaceous units and calcareous sedimentary rocks. There is prominent iron oxide staining and deposition along fractures within the granitic dikes, the veins and in the host strata. Additionally, sericite, carbonate and potassium feldspar alteration are common proximal to the veins.
The gold quartz vein system at Yakare is up to 300 m wide and extends for ~600 min a N-S direction. Individual veins are 2-4 m-thick, and weather to high relief. There has been considerable artisanal activity in the recent past, with mercury amalgam recovery. These artisanal workings are considerable in size, with some at 2-3 meters depth.
The mineralization in the Yakare gold quartz veins has a greater base metal component than those of the southern part of the license area. Coarse-grained galena and chalcopyrite accompany fine- to coarse-grained pyrite locally.
Nine samples of vein material have up to 2.5 g/t Au, accompanied by copper up to 0.8 wt.% Cu and 5.2 wt.% Pb.
