After intensive exploration in this area by geological mapping, washing of soil samples from several test pits and exploration trenches around Kakini Hill and observation from pits dug by the local artisan miners, we discovered that it is an alluvial deposit of gold. Gold accumulates in various blocks in the northern part of the area. A primary deposit of gold with quartz veins was discovered during the exploration.
