Former Underground Akrokeri Mine Profile
Ownership 100% GoldStone Akrokeri Limited
Previous Mining Method The Akrokeri underground mine was operated between 1900 and 1909 by Akrokerri (Ashanti) Mines Limited.

The mine was developed from two shafts approximately 420m apart with its ore treated in a 20-stamp cyanide mill. The lowest mine workings extend to a depth of 114m, where mining stopped apparently due to an inflow of water.

In 1934, an unsuccessful attempt was made to dewater the mine.

During the four-year production period, between 1905 and 1909, 94,500 tonnes of ore were mined to produce about 75,071 ounces of gold. The recoverable grade is calculated to be 24.7g Au/ton.

Mineralisation style Granitoid-hosted gold deposit and sheared metasediments associated with quartz veining
Mineralisation characteristics
  1. The structural and geophysical maps of the area and the granitoid intrusions in the southern part of the permit depict that quartz veinings occur and are prospective, (“free gold” and sulphides are observed).
  2. The basic sedimentary rocks (lower birimian) along or parallel to the structural features are sheared with quartz veining such as on the Homase permit, this could be the same kind of hydrothermal alteration and should be the second center of interest.
