Kingston hits 40m at 3.17 g/t gold at Misima
- Misima drill hole GDD013 hits 40m @ 3.17 g/t Au and 10.88 g/t Ag
- GDD013 potentially extends the thick, high grade Central Umuna zone by ~250m
Diamond drilling continues within the Central Umuna zone targeting resource extensions to the current 2.8Moz1 gold resource.
Hole GDD013 (see Figure 1/Table 1 in link below), was drilled approximately 100m below the historic pit floor. Significantly, as the hole is located ~250m north of the thick, high grade Central Umuna zone, it has potentially extended this important section of the existing resource.
Assays results from GDD013 include:
- 40m @ 3.17 g/t Au and 10.88 g/t Ag, from 234m,
o including 6m @ 14.06 g/t and 13.33 Ag, from 268m
- 6m @ 1.44 g/t Au and 1.98 g/t Ag, from 55m
- 5m @ 0.95 g/t Au and 2.22 g/t Ag, from 138m
Kingston Resources Limited Managing Director, Andrew Corbett said: "Drilling is now demonstrating likely extensions to the Central Umuna ore zone which is very encouraging. This section of the resource has attractive grade and width at only moderate depth. In addition, intersecting potential ore zones in the hanging wall above the Umuna fault zone is beneficial as this material would likely be mined to access the main zone. We are also pleased to see an improvement in drilling performance from our contractor."
