Takengon gold & copper porphyry

The Takengon Gold & Porphyry Prospect is located in Indonesia's Aceh Province, 100 km northwest of the Barisan Porphyry Belt tenement license area. This property was drilled in the late 1990's by previous operators.

Barisan Gold's predecessor company, East Asia Minerals, has conducted exploration activities at Takengon, consisting mainly of mapping, channelling and sampling. East Asia identified a number of gold and gold-copper prospects on the tenement area including:
  • Collins epithermal gold prospect: a large, partially exposed, multistage gold-bearing quartz vein swarm where channel samples have returned assays of 11.0 metres at 22.20 g/t gold and 11.0 metres at 14.99 g/t gold
  • Semelit porphyry prospect: porphyry potential has been indicated by supergene porphyry outcrops with +2% copper and +2 g/t gold.
