THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) released results from a recent follow-up air-core (AC) drilling program at the Eagle-Crow prospect, located on the western side of the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia gold project (CGP) near Leonora in Western Australia.
Kin Mining said the results – achieved two kilometres west of the proposed processing plant location – have returned further meaningful zones of shallow, high-grade gold mineralisation, including:
8 metres at 19.8 grams per tonne gold from 40m, including 4m at 38.8g/t gold from 44m;
8m at 1.09g/t gold from 20m;
4m at 1.93g/t gold from 28m;
4m at 1.04g/t gold from 16m; and
4m at 1.01g/t gold from 8m.
“These latest results further reinforce our enthusiasm about this western side of the Cardinia Gold Project, with Eagle-Crow showing plenty of early-stage similarities to the nearby Bruno-Lewis deposit and the rapidly-emerging Cardinia Hill deposit,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“Based on this successful air-core drilling program, we have now confirmed the presence of two parallel zones of mineralisation at Eagle-Crow, with follow-up RC and diamond drilling to be undertaken as soon as the rigs complete the current drill programs underway at Rangoon and Cardinia Hill, which is expected around mid-June.
“While Eagle-Crow remains an early-stage exploration target, the results that we’re seeing indicate exciting potential to delineate a new, shallow, high-grade gold discovery to organically grow the 1.23 million ounces Cardinia Gold Project.”
