THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) received final assay results from one-metre split samples at the company’s Cardinia gold project (CGP) in Western Australia.
Kin Mining collected the samples from the Comedy King target, generated from an aircore (AC) drilling program completed in December 2019.
The company explained the 1m samples were collected from 4m composite samples greater than 0.1g/t gold, to allow for better definition of the mineralised zones.
“Our initial interpretation at Comedy King based on the four-metres composite assays was a series of high-grade, narrow mineralised zones striking east-west and dipping to the north,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“The one-metre split sampling has supported this view and helped the geological teams interpret the mineralisation more clearly.
“At Comedy King, several quartz sulphide veins exist within broader, lower grade alteration halo mineralisation.
“These veins appear to be initiated from north east trending faults associated with the rapidly expanding Lewis Fault system.
“The Lewis Fault system is intimately associated with mineralisation at the Lewis, Lewis East, Nevertire, Black Chief and now the Comedy King deposits.
“These deposits are spread over an area covering approximately four kilometres by two kilometres and represent a cluster of deposits displaying both high-grade vein and lode style mineralisation and lower grade alteration halo mineralisation, all with a common geological control.
“In addition to the primary mineralisation at Comedy King, aircore drilling has also intersected shallow high-grade mineralisation associated with an interpreted alluvial channel.
“Alluvial channels in the area are extensive and represent an additional near surface exploration target for the company.”
