The joint venture is well advanced with the program at the Misima Gold Project and we have every confidence of delivering exploration success to both grow the current 2.8 million ounce gold resource and to identify new regional targets. We look forward to reporting more assay results shortly."
Koji Hirai from PPC added: "We are delighted to be working with the Kingston team as they advance exploration and development work at Misima. The asset has a lot of potential upside, and our focus is on increasing the project's value through the delivery of a well-executed and safe exploration program."
