2019 Misima Drill Program Underway Targeting Ginamwamwa
Sydney, Jan 22, 2019 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Kingston Resources Limited (ASX:KSN) (Kingston or the Company) is pleased to announce that drilling has recommenced at the flagship 2.8 Moz Au Misima Gold Project in Papua New Guinea post the Christmas break.

- First drilling at new discovery 2km from existing 2.8Moz Au resource

- Ginamwamwa's size and location has potential to be a starter pit

- Further assay results from 2018 drill program are pending

The 2019 drill program will initially focus on the high-grade geochemical target, Ginamwamwa (see Figure 2 in link below). Ginamwamwa is Kingston's first target outside of the current 2.8Moz resource to be drilled. Ginamwamwa is approximately 2km south-west of the historical Umuna Pit and, as a Kingston discovery, it was not drilled by previous operators Placer during the mine's historical 15-year operational period.

Kingston's first high-grade trench assay at Ginamwamwa of 14m @ 12.24g/t Au & 35.5g/t Ag was announced on 27 March 2018. Since then, field work has extended the geochemical target area across three ridge lines with a footprint covering 200m x 500m (see Figure 1 in link below) and delivered a number of high-grade trench results as well as the discovery of visible gold in some areas. Previously announced high-grade geochemical trench results from Ginamwamwa are summarised below (all results at surface):

- 14m @ 12.24g/t Au and 35.5g/t Ag announced 27 March 2018.

- 34m @ 3.19g/t Au, Incl. 8m @ 7.96g/t Au;

- 50m @ 2.06g/t Au, Incl. 8m @ 5.38g/t Au; and

- 5m @ 9.57g/t Au announced 29/10/2018.

- 14m @ 17.0g/t Au, Incl. 6m @ 33.27g/t Au;

- 2m @ 140.0g/t Au; and

- 12m @ 9.68g/t Au, Incl. 8m @ 14.2g/t Au announced 19 December 2018.

Kingston Resources Limited Managing Director, Andrew Corbett said: "Ginamwamwa is a very exciting target and we are pleased to be kicking off 2019 drilling to more thoroughly test what are clearly stellar results at surface. Drilling Kingston's first regional exploration target on Misima is a significant milestone for the Company, and based on the size and location of Ginamwamwa, success with the drill program could define this highly prospective target as an ideal starter pit.

Kingston is also pleased to advise that diamond drilling performance has materially improved since September 2018 with sequential monthly improvements culminating in an increase in metres drilled per day of over 180% being achieved by December. Kingston is satisfied with the improved performance and the ongoing support from its drilling contractors.
