Kalgoorlie Gold Mining’s (ASX:KAL) exceptional results from recent RC drilling at the Kirgella Gift and Providence targets has expaned Pinjin Project target area expanded by over 250% to more than 1,150 m strike length.
We are very excited by new drill results at Providence and Kirgella Gift. The highly significant results combined with newly digitised historic data extend the Kirgella–Providence corridor from around 300 m strike length to more than 1,150 m, with gold mineralisation open in every direction,” Managing Director, Matt Painter, said.
“The Providence target is suddenly rising to the fore. For the first time since its discovery (by previous explorers) almost a decade ago, KalGold has confirmed shallow, high-grade, shear-hosted gold mineralisation at Providence. From only 32 m depth, 11 m at 2.51 g/t Au was intercepted, including 4 m at 5.63 g/t Au from 39 m. New RC and aircore drill programmes are being designed to follow-up.
“At Kirgella Gift, results also extend the prospect beyond previous estimates. Shallow gold mineralisation is open within 40 m of surface. Once again, thick, shear-hosted gold mineralisation has been intercepted and, promisingly, new RC intercepts at Kirgella North confirm gold mineralisation open to the north.”
The results of the recent RC drill programme, combined with recently digitised historic data have extended the known extent of gold mineralisation in the area by >250% from around 300 m strike at Kirgella Gift to over 1,150 m strike.
To the north, KalGold has also tagged coherent shear-hosted gold mineralisation at Kirgella North, around 90 m north of Kirgella Gift.
To the south, high-grade gold has been confirmed at the Providence discovery. Extending the north-south strike extent of gold mineralisation, newly digitised, shallow, historic RAB drilling intercepts show strong, sub-grade gold anomalism on two lines up to 350 m south of Providence.
Beyond the Kirgella–Providence corridor, KalGold is drawing up plans to test historic anomalism and new structural and conceptual targets throughout the 20 km of strike controlled by the Company to the south of the Anglo Saxon gold mine. This will include testing extensions to historic high-grade hits at Harbour Lights and Wessex.
