Kingston Resources Limited: Drilling confirms thick gold zones beneath old Misima pit
Assay results from another five diamond holes drilled into the main Umuna Lode up to December 2018 have now been received. These results are subsequent to the intersection of 40m @ 3.17g/t Au in hole GDD013 announced in November 20181.
Highlights from the drilling include:
- 56m @ 1.01g/t Au, 7.1g/t Ag from 110m in GDD014 (Figure 2), including
o 4m @ 4.81g/t Au and 17.9g/t Ag from 158m;
- 10m @ 1.25g/t Au, 1.4g/t Ag from 92m in GDD015; and
- 10m @ 1.76g/t Au, 1.5g/t Ag from 151m in GDD016.
Following the success of drilling targeting the Umuna Lode at depth, the Company decided to use these five holes to target shallower mineralisation beneath the Umuna Pit and within the existing 2.8Moz Misima mineral resource to test the interpreted continuity of grade and structure. Pleasingly, all results were in line with expectations.
Kingston Resources Ltd. Managing Director, Andrew Corbett said: "These five holes into the northern section of the Umuna resource have confirmed what we had interpreted to be in that area. The result in GDD014 in particular demonstrates the potential for increased thickness and grade within the shear, including a high-grade zone of 4.8g/t Au near the footwall contact. We've now moved the rig down to our Ginamwamwa prospect, where a range of holes are being drilled to test underneath the high-grade supergene gold we identified at surface through the successful 2018 geochemistry program. After completion of the Ginamwamwa program the rig will move to Quartz Mountain."
Having tested a range of locations along the Umuna Shear beneath the old pit, the Company's exploration strategy is now firmly focused on discovering and defining nearsurface satellite mineralisation at prospects including Ginamwamwa, Quartz Mountain, and Ara Creek. Adding near-surface resources is likely to be important in the early stages of any potential future mining operation.
