Fatou is situated along the north-east trending Kadina Fault which is mapped as being over 100 km in strike length. Secondly the occurrence of intermediate to felsic intrusives in at least proximity is also key; again we know this occurs at Fatou. Mafic volcanics are also a key ingredient in many deposits, including West Africa. Many deposits occur within or in close proximity to these. Again Fatou has them.
