Exploring West Africa
Unlocking value

Bishop Resources NL is currently exploring exciting gold potential in Ghana, across a total project area of 478km2. Built on a legacy of success, we are now pursuing opportunities for new world class deposits, while pushing boundaries for what gold exploration can achieve.

About the Company

Bishop Resources NL is the new venture from the Cardinal Resources management team. An Australian incorporated company based in Ghana, our team boasts over 100 combined years of gold exploration experience—and a track record of unrivalled success.

Our goal is to unearth the next world-class discovery in Ghana. We are proud to say that we are well on the way to achieving this, with a legacy of over 12.5 million ounces of gold discovered over the last 10 years.

We do not just take a passive approach. We use our deep local knowledge and connections to achieve a more efficient, more effective business. We know that it is not enough to manage a company from a comfortable office, so our management team is out there on the ground in Ghana, travelling to our exploration tenements in-country. We take an active role in deploying our teams, and working with the local communities to manage our projects.

For us, it is all about action. We oversee our projects in person, and let the results speak for themselves.

And with five active projects currently in our pipeline, we look forward to an exciting future ahead.

CURRENT PROJECTS

SAPELLIGA53km2

SAPELLIGA53km2

Sapelliga covers the eastern strike extent of the Youga gold mine in Burkina Faso.

  • Features multiple artisanal mines.
  • Enjoys the same favourable metavolcanic host units to the1.5Moz Youga mine.
  • Soil geochemistry and trenching by Ashanti Exploration in the 1990s interpreted a 2km mineralised NE strike extension of the Yougamine.
  • The extension zone was further explored by Castle Minerals with follow-up trenching.
  • RC drilling at Sapelliga has uncovered a significant intercept of 22m@2.04g/t AU from 25m.

RC drilling of the Youga Strike Extension by Castle Minerals (22 holes) and Bishop Resources NL (28 holes) has confirmed excellent gold mineralisation, and is providing an exciting prospect for future growth. 

WINDINABA156km2

WINDINABA156km2

Originally explored by Red Back in 2005 and Etruscan Resources in 2008, Bishop Resources NL is now exploring the true potential of this project.

  • In 2008 Etruscan Resources resampled historic trenches, confirming the existence of bedrock gold.
  • Birimian granite-greenstones contact zone immediately along strike of Cardinal Resources’ high-grade Ndongo discovery.
  • Three shallow, yet highly prospective, artisanal pits extend along the strike for over 500 metres in the northeast of the Project. These pits contain small individual veins staked forming saddle reef-type structures within the folded metavolcanics and sediments.
  • A 2km-long gold soil anomaly identified by Etruscan Resources to the north-west of the project straddles the contact zone.
  • Two significant intercepts were discovered, amounting to 8m@5.7g/t Au and 2m@17.5g/t Au, and 10m@2.1g/t Au.

TILI122km2

TILI122km2

The Tili tenement remains relatively unexplored, presenting the potential for the discovery of both large-scale open pit and high-grade underground deposits.

  • A 700m-long gold soil anomaly in the south of the Tili Project was identified by Etruscan Resources.
  • In 2008 Etruscan Resources resampled historic trenches and returned significant results over a strike length of 170m.
  • Three notable intercepts were discovered, amounting to 12m@7.0g/t Au, 1m@20.5g/t Au, and 10m@5.0g/t Au.

Gogo42km2

Gogo42km2

The Gogo Project is located 30km east of the town of Bolgatanga, making it one of our more accessible projects—but with no less untapped potential.

  • The area’s gold potential was first identified in the 1960s as part of a rock sampling program carried out by the Ghana Geological Survey.
  • In years to come, minimal exploration was conducted by prior owners Ashanti Exploration and Carlie Mining, leaving opportunity for an experienced team to make its mark.
  • Bishop Resources NL completed a detailed ground magnetic survey TMI image in 2017, showing that it was a project that has the potential to pay dividends in the future.

NUBADALA113KM2

NUBADALA113KM2

The Nubadala large scale prospecting license is located in NE Ghana some 65 km NE of Bolgatanga.
The tenement covers an area of 113 km2. The area is underexplored by modern methods, and is punctuated by artisanal workings.

NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

OUR SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT

Bishop Resources NL is committed to doing better. Better for our people, better for the earth, and better for the communities in which we operate.

The entire team at Bishop Resources NL understands the impact that mining can have on local communities. So we do everything we can to make sure we use this impact for positive change.

From the inception of our operations, our aim has been to leave our main focus areas in better condition than when we arrived. We do this by actively engaging with the local communities, and seek out their voice and concerns over how we manage our mining practices.

This is not just about our success. Bishop Resources NL is aiming to create a company that employs local workers for generations to come. We are actively creating jobs in the local towns where our tenements lie, and are focussed on creating a successful future for the entire region.

After all, we believe that prosperity should be shared.

We are also committed to managing explorations that create as little ground disturbance as possible. We do this by using more sustainable exploration processes, and ensuring that we improve and rehabilitate the land on which we work.
