Kin Mining Confirms East Lynne Mineralisation

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) kept market-watchers on their toes this week with a further announcement from the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia Gold Project (CGP), located near Leonora in Western Australia.

Kin Mining followed up results from its Helens East prospect with strong assay results from recent aircore (AC) drilling at the East Lynne prospect, located 3km north-east of the proposed plant site at the CGP.

Assay results from Line 5 and Line 6 of the recently-completed 14-line program include:

Line 5

EL20AC093
20 metres at 0.96 grams per tonne gold from 20m;

EL20AC097
4m at 2.21g/t gold from 20m; and

EL20AC099
12m at 1.28g/t gold from 12m.

Line 6

EL20AC128
4m at 0.83g/t gold from 24m; and

EL20AC140
4m at 1.03g/t gold from 28m.

“These new AC results show a semi-continuous zone of mineralisation is present at East Lynne, spanning an area 100 metres wide and up to 1.3 kilometres long and lying above a significant geological contact,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“This broad zone of sporadic, shallow oxide gold mineralisation with strongly anomalous multi-element geochemistry is a compelling target for testing with deeper RC and diamond drilling.

“We are eagerly awaiting results from the remaining eight lines of this broad-spaced AC program to get a clearer sense of the potential scale of this target ahead of follow-up RC drilling.

“The mineralisation at East Lynne appears to be hosted by a volcaniclastic unit with Felsic Volcanic, Mafic and sedimentary rocks with variable amounts of quartz veining, alteration and sulphide pitting encountered in the AC drilling.

“This indicates to our geological team that the underlying geological contact at East Lynne is a complex and potentially strongly altered geological feature.

“The multi-element geochemistry in this area is extensive and extends over an area spanning approximately six kilometres by 0.6 kilometres.

“In the meantime, we’re also progressing a program of in-fill AC drilling at East Lynne, building on the encouraging results reported from the northern end of this large gold target last month.

“In addition, EIS co-funded diamond drilling is also continuing to test geophysical targets at depth.”

Kin Mining Encounters Wide High-Grade Gold Hits at Helens East

THE DRILL SERGEANT: The gold hits continue for Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) from the ongoing Phase 3 drilling program at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia Gold Project (CGP), located near Leonora in Western Australia.

This time the news is from the Helens East prospect, from where Kin reported results of the initial eight RC drill holes completed as part of a 15-hole program designed to follow up broad-spaced AC drilling.

Results include:

HE20RC358
21 metres at 3.58 grams per tonne gold from 45m, including 5m at 4.28g/t gold from 50m;
7m at 6.16g/t gold from 58m;

HE20RC352
1m at 5.01g/t gold from 16m and 2m at 2.65g/t gold from 49m; and

HE20RC356
1m at 2.34g/t gold from 37m.

Helens East is located 1.5 kilometres from the site of the proposed processing plant at the CGP, and is one of multiple new priority targets outside of the known deposits currently being drilled as part of the Phase 3 program.

The results received so far from the recent RC program at Helens East have demonstrated the presence of a large zone of consistent sulphide-hosted mineralisation.

“These exciting new high-grade results from RC drilling at Helens East represent a significant breakthrough in the broader context of the ongoing Phase 3 program,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“The broad zone of consistent, shallow high-grade sulphide mineralisation encountered is exactly what we are looking for as part of our broader exploration program at the CGP.

“We are eagerly awaiting further RC drilling results from the remainder of the holes in order to confirm that Helens East is a significant new discovery for the company.

“The mineralisation at Helens East appears to be similar in style and mineralogy to both the Helens mineralisation and the Cardinia Hill mineralisation, which are located nearby.

“This indicates to our geological teams a common source for the Helens, Cardinia Hill and Helens East deposits.

“These lodes appear to be part of a significantly larger mineralised system of high-grade, sulphide-dominant lodes and veins on the eastern side of the Cardinia area linked to the Helens Fault.

“The Helens Fault is believed to be a regionally significant structure which is likely to control mineralisation at a number of prospects including Helens, Fiona, Rangoon, East Lynne, Cardinia Hill and now Helens East.

“The multi-element geochemistry in this area is extensive and extends over an area spanning approximately 2km by 1km.

“The Helens East area will be further tested with additional RC and diamond drilling once the remaining 16 RC holes drilled in this initial follow-up have been returned from the assay lab and the RC rig returns to site in early September.

“In the meantime, the extensive in-fill air-core program at East Lynne is continuing, building on the encouraging results reported from the northern end of this large gold target last month and the EIS co-funded diamond drilling is continuing to test some conceptual geophysical targets at depth.”

Kin Mining Extends Cardinia Hill Discovery

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) has extended mineralisation at Cardinia Hill via ongoing Phase 3 Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling program at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia Gold Project (CGP) located near Leonora in Western Australia.

Kin Mining announced the extension on the back of recent assay results received for five Reverse Circulation (RC) holes drilled at Cardinia Hill.

Results include:

CH20RC056
15 metres at 1.97 grams per tonne gold from 150m;

CH20RC058
9m at 1.92g/t gold from 34m;

CH20RC060
10m at 1.05g/t gold from 139m; and

CH20RC061
10m at 2.67g/t gold from 149m.

The company said the results further refined its geological understanding of the Cardinia Hill deposit, highlighting the presence of two north-plunging shoots of higher-grade mineralisation within the main lode.

“The follow-up phase of RC drilling at the northern end of Cardinia Hill has been successful in intersecting the northern shoot of mineralisation at depth, further improving our understanding of the geometry and scale of the deposit – and providing a solid foundation for planned resource drilling,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“The diamond drill core is also providing strong insight for our exploration team in terms of understanding the internal detail of the deposit.

“We are continuing the systematic approach to exploration that has proven to be so successful to date as we advance a number of targets in parallel across the broader Cardinia area.

“Investors can look forward to continued regular updates as we receive assay results from RC drilling across the Helens East, Pelsart and Cardinia Hill prospects.

“We are also looking forward to receiving further results from the extensive air-core program at East Lynne, building on the encouraging results reported from the northern end of this large gold target earlier this week…and the EIS co-funded diamond drill holes at East Lynne testing some conceptual geophysical targets at depth.”

Kin Mining Claims East Lynne Gold Discovery

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) reported new assay results from air-core (AC) drilling carried out at the East Lynne prospect at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia gold project (CGP) near Leonora in Western Australia.

Kin Mining considers the results to be of some “significance” as the East Lynne prospect is located just three kilometres from the proposed plant site at the CGP.

Results include:

EL20AC041
20 metres at 1.36 grams per tonne gold from 20m;

EL20AC042
4m at 1.29g/t gold from 32m;

EL20AC078
4m at 0.97g/t gold from 16m;

EL20AC079
8m at 0.91g/t gold from 24m; and

EL20AC090
4m at 1.72g/t gold from 12m.

The company claimed the drilling discovered shallow, ore grade mineralisation in new zones not previously drilled with attendant high-grade rock chips from goethite-rich, altered felsic volcanic rocks at surface.

Follow up AC drilling has commenced to in-fill and extend the zones at 200m line spacing.

“The East Lynne target is a significant structural and geochemical greenfields target within the CGP,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in an exhaustive quote in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“There are several sets of workings along the target that have produced high-grade rock chips, significant alluvial gold won by prospectors and strong high-grade drill results from holes drilled immediately under the old workings.

“However, there has been limited and inadequate testing of the mineralised trends by previous explorers, and the target is ripe for a systematic, broad-spaced drill testing program to test the entire length and width of the anomaly and highlight new zones for immediate follow-up.

“We started the program at the northern end of the target in July and have been working our way south, with the entire 15,000 metres program now complete.

“The results from the initial four lines of drilling are excellent, particularly considering the wide-spaced nature of the drilling.

“Significant new zones of mineralisation have been discovered in AC lines 3a, 3b and 4b in four-metre composite sampling and mineralisation marked by historical workings has been extended.

“These new zones are being immediately followed up with in-fill and extension AC drilling at 200 metres line spacing before potentially commencing RC drilling programs.

“We also look forward to receiving the assay results from the remaining 10 lines of 400 metres spaced drilling in the central and southern sections of the East Lynne geochemical anomaly.

“If these are also successful then further in-fill AC and follow-up RC programs are likely to commence as a priority.

“Once the diamond rig has finished at Cardinia Hill, we also plan to drill two diamond holes at East Lynne to give us a clearer picture of the structural orientation and controls on the mineralisation.”

Kin Mining Scores High-Grades at Bruno-Lewis

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) reported new assay results from recent Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling undertaken at the Bruno-Lewis prospect, part of the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia gold project (CGP) in Western Australia.

Kin Mining carried out the drilling at Bruno-Lewis as part of the ongoing Phase 3 drilling program while it was waiting on assay results from regional prospects it had drilled in previous weeks, including Helens East, Cardinia Hill, Hobby and East Lynne.

Air-core and diamond drilling is continuing at the CGP with RC drilling scheduled to resume anon.

High-grade assays were received for 10 Reverse Circulation holes drilled at the Bruno-Lewis deposit, including:

BL20RC055
15 metres at 3.35 grams per tonne gold from 9m and 1m at 35.4g/t gold from 41m;

BL20RC057
9m at 5.03g/t gold from 33m;

HB20RC062
9m at 2.58g/t gold from 23m;

BL20RC052
11m at 1.78g/t gold from 34m; and

BL20RC059
7m at 1.4g/t gold from 21m and 1m at 19.5g/t gold from 44m.

“The strong results being generated by the Phase 3 drilling continue to demonstrate the exceptional underlying value of the Cardinia Gold Project,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“We were able to capitalise on the excellent progress we have been making with the RC rig by fitting in a strategic 10-hole program at the cornerstone Bruno-Lewis deposit.

“The results have exceeded our expectations, highlighting the potential both to increase the average grade of the Resource and to include previously identified lode positions that were not classified as part of the Mineral Resource estimate in February 2020.

“This work will be incorporated as part of our project-wide Mineral Resource estimate update towards the end of the year, which will be based on current, much higher gold prices.

“The recent drilling has also demonstrated the potential for the mineralisation at Bruno-Lewis to link up with the Lewis East prospect as part of a much larger mineralised system.

“This potential will be evaluated with further drilling later this year.”

Kin Mining Making a Hobby of Scoring Gold Hits

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) reported further encouraging assay results from ongoing Phase 3 Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling across multiple prospects at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia gold project near Leonora in Western Australia.

Kin Mining continued to record gold hits of note from a program consisting 24 Reverse Circulation drill-holes, including 15 holes drilled at Hobby, four at Black Chief and five at Faye Marie.

Results include:

Hobby

HB20RC001
6 metres at 2.41 grams per tonne gold from 22m;

HB20RC004
5m at 3.72g/t gold from 74m;

HB20RC003
2m at 2.43g/t gold from 84m;

HB20RC011
3m at 1.45g/t gold from 71m;

HB20RC012
2m at 5.64g/t gold from 17m; and

HB20RC015
13m at 1.3g/t gold from 46m.

Black Chief

BC20RC013
1m at 2.84g/t gold from 48m; and

BC20RC015
1m at 1.46g/t gold from 33m.

Faye Marie

FM20RC065
1m at 4.28g/t gold from 61m and 1m at 2.93g/t gold from 76m; and

FM20RC067
2m at 1.83g/t gold from 40m.

Kin Mining said the drilling continued to highlight the presence of substantial mineralisation outside of the known deposits, reinforcing the substantial exploration upside at Cardinia.

“Phase 3 drilling is continuing to make excellent progress, with the latest batch of results highlighting the potential of the Hobby prospect as a significant focus for follow-up exploration and drilling aimed at expanding the existing resource of 8,000 ounces at 2.1 grams per tonne,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“Our strategic focus is to find new areas outside of the known deposits capable of delivering shallow resources at good grade, and Hobby certainly ticks every box in that respect.

“We have intersected consistent high-grade mineralisation (up to 5.64g/t) over a 500 metres strike length, with the mineralisation remaining open to the south.

“Drilling has also hit a new parallel zone to the west which requires further investigation.

“Further drilling is required to in-fill and expand the existing Hobby Resource, while also further evaluating the parallel structure to the west.

“Further RC and diamond drilling is planned prior to estimating a new resource that will form part of our project-wide Mineral Resource update due later this year.

“In the meantime, drilling is continuing at full pace with an air-core, RC and diamond rig currently operating across the project.

“This should ensure a consistent steady flow of results over the coming weeks.”

Kin Mining Drilling Results Encourage Quick Follow-up Program

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) reported receipt of the final batch of assays from recent exploration-focused drilling programs at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia gold project near Leonora in Western Australia.

Kin Mining signalled it intends wasting little time to recommence drilling with planning already underway for the next phase of drilling scheduled to commence in the third week of June.

The company received assay results from recent Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling at the Lewis East prospect and air-core drilling at the Faye Marie prospect.

Drilling at Lewis East was designed to follow up on results achieved in the recent air-core program.

Kin declared the latest assays to have confirmed the presence of broad zones of gold mineralisation associated with disseminated sulphides.

Assays from Lewis East include:

LE20RC057
44 metres at 0.47 grams per tonne gold from 51m;

LE20RC048
11m at 0.62g/t gold from 53m;

LE20RC054
7m at 0.9g/t gold from 11m; and

LE20RC049
3m at 1.49g/t gold from 20m.

The results from Faye Marie produced an intercept of:

FM20AC058
4m at 2.99g/t gold from 48m.

Kin Mining said this had confirmed the prospectivity of this contact which comprises over a three-kilometre strike length between Faye Marie and the near-by Black Chief prospect.

“This wraps up the recent exploration at the Cardinia Gold Project, with the drilling outlining multiple new areas of mineralisation that require follow-up,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“As with any exploration program, we have had a range of results in terms of the assays, but we believe that we now have a much clearer picture of where to focus our efforts moving forward.

“The next phase of drilling will be significantly larger than the recently completed program and is scheduled to commence in the third week of June.

“We are confident that it has the potential to take the Cardinia Gold Project to the next level as one of the most exciting emerging exploration plays in the junior gold sector in Western Australia.

“We look forward to providing further information on the upcoming program in due course.”

Kin Mining Drilling Continues Cardinia Gold Project Growth

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) reported final assay results from recently completed Reverse Circulation (RC) and air-core (AC) drilling at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia gold project (CGP) near Leonora in Western Australia.

Kin mining conducted the drilling at the Cardinia Hill prospect (RC) and at the Helens East prospect (AC), both located approximately 2.5 kilometres from the proposed CGP processing plant site.

Assays were received for the remaining nine RC holes drilled at the Cardinia Hill discovery as well as a small extension to the air-core drilling program at Helens East.

Results include:

Cardinia Hill RC

CH20RC035
8m at 3.81 grams per tonne gold from 4m;

CH20RC038
8m at 2.38g/t gold from 18m and 9m at 2.31g/t gold from 56m;

CH20RC037
4m at 5.15g/t gold from 32m and 6m at 1.92g/t gold from 66m; and

CH20RC040
9m at 1.72g/t gold from 42m.

Helens East AC

HE20AC328
4m at 0.55g/t gold from 28m.

Kin Mining said the new results further extended the footprint of the Cardinia Hill discovery along strike to the north and down-dip, while also suggesting the presence of a cross-cutting structural host to the mineralisation, as opposed to the stratigraphy-parallel interpretation initially developed.

“We are continuing to build the geological picture at Cardinia Hill, with the latest results providing further important insights into what appears to be a significant zone of shallow mineralisation extending over a 500 metres strike length,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“The final batch of assays from the recent RC program have continued to define high-grade zones and confirmed extensions of the mineralisation along strike to the north and down-dip.

“We now have a much clearer picture of the orientation and controls on the mineralised lodes, and we are looking forward to getting back into the field as soon as possible to drill out this exciting discovery to facilitate a maiden JORC Mineral Resource estimate.

“Cardinia Hill is just one of several emerging areas that we plan to drill aggressively in the coming months.

“While the final assays from the air-core program at Helens East were unsuccessful in confirming a significant northern extension of the Cardinia Hill mineralisation, there is plenty of follow-up work to do at Helens East and Helens South.

“We are awaiting final assays from Lewis East, which should be reported shortly, and planning is already underway on our next phase of exploration – which will encompass Cardinia Hill, Helens South/East, Comedy King/Faye Marie and other emerging areas that will be described more fully in an Exploration Update to be provided in the coming weeks.”

Kin Mining Drill Results Highlight Cardinia Gold Potential

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) reported the latest assay results it has received from recent air-core and Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia gold project near Leonora in Western Australia.

Kin Mining took receipt of assay results from RC drilling undertaken at the Comedy King prospect and air-core (AC) drilling at Comedy King and the Faye Marie prospects, located approximately 2.7 kilometres from the proposed processing plant site at Cardinia.

The assays results came from 12 Reverse Circulation (RC) holes drilled at Comedy King as well as 104 air-core holes drilled at Comedy King and 51 air-core holes drilled along the Faye Marie.

Better hits included:

Comedy King AC

CK20AC193
4 metres at 113 grams per tonne gold from 0m.

Comedy King RC

CK20RC142
2m at 8.1g/t gold from 37m;

CK20RC146
3m at 1.5g/t gold from 70m; and

CK20RC131
2m at 1.98g/t gold from 7m.

Faye Marie AC

FM20AC019
8m at 3.01g/t gold from 36m; and

FM20AC028
4m at 1.29g/t gold from 20m.

Kin Mining said the results build on the previous air-core drilling results from Comedy King and combine with the recent drilling at Faye Marie, supported by surface gold geochemistry, to demonstrate a coherent zone of gold mineralisation extending over a strike length of up to 3km.

The company also noted the intercept of 4m at 113g/t gold from surface at Comedy King, saying this highlights the potential for the Cardinia area to host extremely high-grade gold.

“Our exploration-driven strategy at the Cardinia gold project is continuing to gather momentum, with the latest batch of results demonstrating the potential for a large and coherent gold system extending from Faye Marie to Black Chief in the south and across to Comedy King,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“The bonanza grade intercept of 4m at 113 grams per tonne from surface is a standout for air-core drilling, and clearly demonstrates the potential for exceptionally high gold grades at the Cardinia project.

“We are also developing a clearer understanding of the orientation and controls of the mineralisation in the Comedy King-Faye Marie-Black Chief corridor, and this area will be one of a number of areas to follow up in our next phase of drilling.

“In the meantime, a significant number of assay results are still in the pipeline from Cardinia Hill and Lewis East.

“We expect to receive these results over the next week or so with the objective of wrapping up all of the results from this phase of drilling by early June and planning our next exploration campaign thereafter.”

Kin Mining Encounters Further Shallow Gold at Cardinia

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kin Mining (ASX: KIN) reported assay results from recently completed drilling programs from the company’s 100 per cent-owned Cardinia Gold Project (CGP) near Leonora in Western Australia.

Kin Mining’s recent activity consisted Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling at the Cardinia Hill prospect and air-core (AC) drilling at the Helens East and Helens South prospects, all considered to be key emerging regional target areas at CGP.

The company said the new results build on previously announced shallow gold results and continue to highlight the potential to identify strong zones of new mineralisation at Cardinia.

New assays include:

Cardinia Hill RC

CH20RC025
7 metres at 2.44 grams per tonne gold from 117m and 5m at 1.21g/t gold from 13m;

CH20RC031
4m at 0.86g/t gold from 14m; and

CH20RC032
1m at 1.07g/t gold from 48m.

Helens South AC

HS20AC314
4m at 4.29g/t gold from 12m;

HS20AC285
8m at 1.8g/t gold from 4m;

HS20AC255
4m at 1.13g/t gold from 28m; and

HS20AC239
4m at 1.09g/t gold from 12m.

Kin declared the results at Cardinia Hill have confirmed the presence of several mineralised lodes with significant downdip extent, with shallow mineralisation now defined over a total strike length of 500 metres.

The Helens South AC results confirmed the presence of mineralisation beneath soil anomalies, in areas without any great historical workings and limited historical exploration.

“The recently completed Phase 2 RC and AC drilling program has already given us a significant insight into the enormous untapped exploration potential at the Cardinia Gold Project, with results still outstanding for almost two-thirds of the drilling,” Kin Mining managing director Andrew Munckton said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“The program was designed to follow up new discoveries made at Cardinia Hill, Comedy King and Lewis East in December last year and to commence first-pass air-core drilling on a number of other targets in the immediate Cardinia area.

“The results so far have reinforced our belief that Cardinia is a significantly mineralised area, worthy of considerable additional drilling and exploration in the coming months.

“So far in Phase 2, several new zones of mineralisation have been discovered at Helens South and Helens East to complement the Phase 1 discoveries.

“Cardinia Hill is shaping up as a significant new discovery with grades achieved so far that are significantly higher than those reported previously across the broader Cardinia Gold Project.

“While the assay results in CH20RC020 and CH20RC021 are not spectacular, they have confirmed the geological continuity of the mineralisation over at least 500m of strike length.

“Logging of follow-up RC drill holes CH20RC034 to CH20RC041 all showed strong alteration and sulphide mineralisation and we are looking forward to receiving these assay results.

“We have little doubt that Cardinia Hill will become a key area of exploration focus for us over the coming months.

“At Helens South and Helens East, air-core drilling has so far defined several new zones of mineralisation down to approximately 30 metres (the depth of penetration of the AC drill) which are co-incident with gold-in-soil anomalies generated from the recently completed Auger drilling program.

“This gives us confidence that the systematic approach we have adopted towards exploration at Cardinia is yielding good results and has put us on a clear pathway to make further significant discoveries.

“Further RC and AC drilling has been completed at Comedy King, Lewis East and Faye Marie.

“The company has approximately 3500 samples being analysed at the laboratory presently, and we are looking forward to reporting these results to the market as they are received.”
