THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kumarina Resources has received results from a recent drilling campaign undertaken on the Malcolm /Challenger open pits at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Murrin Murrin project in Western Australia.
Highlights from the drilling results include:
– 13 metres at 6.26 grams per tonne gold;
– 2m at 3.46g/t gold;
– 4m at 3.68g/t gold;
– 3m at 3.75g/t gold; and
– 1m at 2.85g/t gold (EOH).
“These results enhance previous results reported in the Prospectus and furthers the company’s understanding of the structure,” Kumarina Resources managing director Jamie Sullivan said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“The results will be used, along with a further phase of drilling, to quantify resources available from expansion of the two pits, which were only mined to a depth of 30 metres.”
Kumarina drilled twenty RC holes for 1410m along the eastern side of the Malcolm and Challenger gold pits.
Step-out holes were designed to test for extensions of gold mineralisation under and between the two pits.
The company said the results provide further support to its earlier drilling campaigns in that it has demonstrated the mineralisation below the pit floor is continuous down to at least 55 metres.
The mineralisation remains open at depth.
Kumarina said it is planning further infill and deeper drilling to test continuity of mineralisation between sections and down dip.

The company is now awaiting final results from recently completed drilling programs carried out at it Ilgarari and Nangaroo copper projects, also located in Western Australia.
Kumarina said it expects these results will be released later in the month.
