THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) reported results from extended exploration drilling carried out at the company’s Cardinia gold project (CGP) near Leonora in Western Australia.
Kin Mining completed a program of Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling at the Eagle‐Crow target targeting below previously reported high‐grade air‐core drilling intercepts.
The drilling intersected several zones of shallow, high‐grade gold mineralisation extending over a strike length of 500 metres at Eagle and two zones, each extending over approximately 400m of strike, at the Crow target.
The company said the results reinforce its view that Eagle‐Crow, located 2km west of the CGP, offers potential for an emerging gold discovery on the western side of Cardinia and that the Cardinia Hill trend holds plenty of discovery potential subject to additional drilling.
The highlights reported from the Eagle‐Crow prospect include:
17 metres at 3.78 grams per tonne gold from 43m, including 4m at 5.45g/t gold from 43m, and 3m at 12.9g/t gold from 54m;
6m at 4.19g/t gold from 13m;
3m at 2.03g/t gold from 29m; and
5m at 3.1g/t gold from 55m.
“The Eagle‐Crow area on the western side of the CGP is continuing to show great promise,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“This is the first deeper RC drilling below the encouraging air‐core intercepts reported earlier this year, and we are very encouraged by the results.
“Drilling has clearly demonstrated the potential for multiple zones of shallow, high‐grade gold mineralisation which require further drilling to confirm their geometry and continuity and lay the foundations for future resource estimation.
“However, we can see clear potential in this area to delineate additional deposits with the potential to make a meaningful future contribution to our Resource inventory.”
