Exploration continues in tandem with construction
Kin is looking to build on its resource of about 1 million ounces which includes a reserve of 373,000 ounces.
Drilling has commenced at the group’s Kyte orebody to extend on its indicated resource of 21,000 ounces of gold.
Improving Kyte should increase project economics
Defining and increasing the mineralisation at Kyte aims to enhance the project economics and, in turn, provide the opportunity for early payback of the debt facility.
Increasing the resource at Kyte will also provide greater flexibility within the mine plan.
