The Sabodala gold project is situated in the Mako Mafic Volcanic Belt and lie within the west Birimian gold province, which is host to some of the world’s largest gold deposits. Sabodala is sited on a small hill of unweathered metabasalts. Locally, the volcanics are intruded by subvolcanic dolerite and gabbro sills and dykes, as well as quartz-feldspar porphyry and unfoliated rhyolite dykes. The gold mineralisation is associated with quartz, sericite, ankerite/siderite veining and orange-coloured silica-albite-carbonate-pyrite alteration. The main sulphide mineral is pyrite, although free gold does occur.
