Kin Mining Drilling Reveals High-Grade Gold at Depth

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) has had the drill bit spinning to return assay results from recent air-core (AC) and Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling at the East Lynne and Collymore prospects at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia gold project (CGP), located near Leonora in Western Australia.

Kin Mining conducted the drilling as part of an ongoing Phase 3 drilling program at the CGP.

The East Lynne trend is located some three kilometres north-east of the proposed plant site at the CGP and is a greenfields gold target Kin’s geological team identified over the past 12 months as a result of systematic exploration work.

The company completed a total 19,500m of AC drilling over the East Lynne project area, with in-fill drilling completed over the northern portion to a 200m line spacing (Lines 15 to 21).

Assay results for the in-fill air-core (AC) drilling Lines 15 to 21 at the northern portion of the East Lynne trend include:

8 metres at 1.52 grams per tonne gold from 16m;

4m at 1.27g/t gold from 20m;

4m at 1.67g/t gold from 20m; and

4m at 4.18g/t gold from 28m.

“In-fill aircore drilling at 200 metres line spacing is continuing to deliver positive results at East Lynne, with more encouraging ore grade results seen in the Northern Zone,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“This program now concludes the AC drilling program for 2020.

“The program has defined the East Lynne mineralisation at 200 metres line spacing over 3.2 kilometres in several semicontinuous positions.

“In addition, the program has also delineated a new zone of mineralisation at Collymore extending over a strike extent of 1,200 metres.”

The company has also completed an initial RC drilling program at both East Lynne and Collymore to test immediately beneath ore grade intersections from earlier AC drilling programs.

Assay results from the Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling at East Lynne and Collymore show potential for high-grade mineralisation, as seen at other deposits at Cardinia such as Hobby and Cardinia Hill, including:

2m at 1.94g/t gold from 79m;

1m at 3.51g/t gold from 76m;

1m at 3.79g/t gold from 22m; and

1m at 6.1g/t gold from 12m.

Kin Mining will use these results to vector in to priority target zones at East Lynne and Collymore as part of planned follow-up RC drilling early next year.

“The initial program of RC and diamond drilling undertaken at East Lynne and Collymore has helped our understanding of these two targets within the large Cardinia mineralised system,” Munckton said.

“The anomalous soil geochemistry and strong AC results in the oxide zone have helped us target the initial RC drilling positions.

“The combination of the AC and initial RC drilling has outlined semi-continuous mineralisation in several zones over an extensive area with occasional very high-grade intersections over the four metres and one metre sample intervals.”
