Annual Report to Shareholders
Review of Operations
Kingston has had a transformational year to 30 June 2018. A number of significant events during the year have set the course for Kingston in FY19 and beyond. Of most importance was the acquisition of WCB Resources Limited, which brought with it a 49% interest in the exciting 2.8Moz Misima Gold Project in Papua New Guinea. Following this, Kingston exercised its option to acquire 75% of the Livingstone Gold Project in December 2017. With focus turning to the Misima Gold Project, a strategic review was undertaken to assess alternatives for the lithium exploration portfolio. This process successfully concluded in June 2018 with the sale of the Mt Cattlin lithium assets for $600,000, and then shortly after year end the agreed sale of Kingston's Bynoe and Arunta lithium assets for a further $1,800,000.
With the strategy turning towards the Misima Gold Project, Kingston conducted an equity placement in February 2018, successfully raising $4.3m, alongside which an SPP raised a further $255,000. These funds enabled Kingston to move forward with drilling at Misima which, following several months of mobilisation, commenced in early May only six months post the acquisition of WCB Resources.
