On March 23, 2022, the Corporate introduced an up to date and considerably larger Mineral Useful resource estimate for the Anaconda subject, made out of the Menankoto allow and the Bantako North allow, situated roughly 25 kilometres from the Fekola Mine. The up to date and considerably larger Anaconda Mineral Useful resource estimate, constrained inside of a conceptual pit shell at a gold worth of $1,800 in step with ounce, incorporated an preliminary Indicated Mineral Useful resource estimate of 32,400,000 tonnes at 1.08 g/t gold for a complete 1,130,000 oz. of gold, and Inferred Mineral Useful resource estimate of 63,700,000 tonnes at 1.12 g/t gold for two,280,000 oz. of gold. The Mineral Useful resource estimate incorporated first time reporting of one,130,000 oz. of Indicated Mineral Sources and an building up of one,510,000 oz. (196% building up) of Inferred Mineral Sources for the reason that preliminary Inferred Mineral Useful resource estimate in 2017 (21,590,000 tonnes at 1.11 g/t gold, for 767,000 oz..

At the Mamba zone, drill hollow BND_090, which returned 4.34 g/t gold over 5.6 metres, from 130.1 metres, and hollow MSD_212, which returned 8.09 g/t gold over 15.8 metres, from 431.10 metres, are in particular vital as they verify the continuity of prime grade sulphide mineralization 110 metres underneath the prohibit of the up to date Mineral Useful resource pit barriers. In the principle Anaconda subject Mineral Useful resource pit, drill hollow MSR_938, which returned 3.32 g/t gold over 10 metres, from 92 metres, and drill hollow MSR_939, which returned 1.49 g/t gold over 50 metres, from 71 metres, display the possible so as to add sulphide Mineral Sources underneath the recently outlined saprolite sources, the place the mineralization stays open at intensity.

Ongoing drilling by means of the Corporate at the Anaconda spaces  to infill and prolong the saprolite Mineral Useful resource subject and to apply up at the sulphide mineralization, together with the Mamba and Adder zones, in addition to a number of different goals underneath the saprolite mineralization, continues to generate high-quality drill ends up in each saprolite and sulphide domain names and demonstrates robust possible to additional building up the up to date Anaconda subject Mineral Useful resource estimate.

2022 Fekola and West Mali Regional Exploration

For the rest of 2022, the Corporate will proceed to drill to infill and prolong the saprolite Mineral Useful resource subject and to apply up at the sulphide mineralization on the Anaconda subject, together with the Mamba and Adder zones, and several other different goals underneath the saprolite mineralization. The nice grade and width mixtures on the Anaconda subject proceed to offer a robust indication of the possibility of Fekola-style south plunging our bodies of sulphide mineralization, which stay open down plunge. Six drill rigs are recently drilling within the Anaconda subject.

In April 2022 , the Corporate received the Bakolobi allow in Mali from a neighborhood Malian corporate. The Bakolobi allow is situated between the Menankoto allow, to the North, and the Fekola Mine’s Medinandi allow, wrapping across the latter to its south-west finish, protecting a space of 100 km 2 and offering roughly 25 km of contiguous exploration possible alongside the Senegal-Mali Shear Zone  An preliminary $3.4 million exploration program at the Bakolobi allow is scheduled for the second one part of 2022.  Drilling will center of attention at the southward extension of identified sources within the Anaconda subject. The Corporate believes that the Bakolobi allow is a extremely potential subject that has the possible to offer for the near-term addition of each saprolite- and sulphide-hosted gold deposits.

B2Gold’s proposed acquisition of Oklo Sources Restricted and its flagship Dandoko challenge, which stays matter to of completion, will prolong the footprint of B2Gold’s exploration in Mali to over 1,700 km 2 and upload the Dandoko challenge’s JORC 2012 compliant Measured and Indicated Mineral Useful resource estimate of 8.70 million tonnes at 1.88 g/t for 528,000 oz. of gold and an Inferred Mineral Useful resource estimate of two.63 million tonnes at 1.67 g/t for 141,000 oz. of gold, to B2Gold’s swiftly rising Mineral Useful resource stock within the area. The Corporate believes there’s robust possible to increase the mineralization on the Dandoko challenge

The Corporate additionally has one drill rig lively at the Kolomba regional goal, which is situated roughly 15 kilometers from the Anaconda subject, with assay outcomes pending.

Anaconda Building Replace

In 2022, the Corporate has budgeted $33 million for building of infrastructure for Section I saprolite mining on the Anaconda subject, together with highway development. In accordance with the up to date Mineral Useful resource estimate and B2Gold’s initial making plans, the Corporate has demonstrated {that a} pit positioned at the Anaconda subject may provide selective upper grade saprolite subject matter (reasonable grade of two.2 g/t) to be trucked to and fed into the Fekola mill starting off as early as past due 2022 at a fee of one.5 million tonnes in step with annum. Matter to acquiring all essential lets in and of completion of a last building plan, the trucking of selective upper grade saprolite subject matter to the Fekola mill would building up the ore processed and annual gold manufacturing from the Fekola mill, with the possible so as to add a median of roughly 80,000 to 100,000 oz. in step with 12 months to the Fekola mill’s annual gold manufacturing. The plan to truck the selective upper grade saprolite subject matter isn’t incorporated within the Corporate’s 2022 manufacturing steerage and the Anaconda subject Mineral Sources have now not been incorporated within the present Fekola lifetime of mine plan.

In accordance with the up to date Mineral Useful resource estimate and the 2022 exploration drilling outcomes, the Corporate has commenced a Section II scoping find out about to study the challenge economics of making a stand-alone mill close to the Anaconda subject. Matter to receipt of a favorable Section II scoping find out about, the Corporate expects that the saprolite subject matter would proceed to be trucked to and fed into the Fekola mill throughout the development length for the Anaconda subject stand-alone mill.

QA/QC on Pattern Assortment and Assaying

The principle laboratories for the Fekola Mine and West Mali regional exploration are SGS Laboratories in Bamako, Mali and Bureau Veritas Laboratories in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire . Periodically, exploration samples will likely be analyzed on the Fekola Mine laboratory.  At each and every laboratory, samples are ready and analyzed the use of 50-gram hearth assay with atomic absorption end and/or gravimetric end. Umpire assays are used to observe lab efficiency per thirty days.

High quality assurance and high quality keep an eye on procedures come with the systematic insertion of blanks, requirements and duplicates into the core, opposite circulate and aircore drilling pattern strings. The result of the keep an eye on samples are evaluated frequently with batches re-analyzed and/or resubmitted as wanted. All outcomes mentioned on this announcement have handed B2Gold’s high quality assurance and high quality keep an eye on protocols.
