Along with composite assay grades as high as 7.01 g/t, drilling at the Kingsley deposit has highlighted the potential of the main line of historic workings.
Gold has been identified up to 850 metres west of the historic shafts and the prospect remains open along strike, greatly increasing the possible size of the mineralised zone.
Highlighted intersections from Kingsley include 4 metres at 7.01 g/t gold from 8 metres; 24 metres at 1.4 g/t from 32 metres, including 4 metres at 6.60 g/t; and 8 metres at 2.04 g/t from 12 metres.
New area of mineralisation confirmed
Kingston has confirmed a new area of gold mineralisation northwest of the historic workings at the Dampier prospect.
First identified in auger sampling by Kingston, Dampier is around 500 metres long with mineralisation open along strike to the west and east.
Intersections from Dampier include 4 metres at 2.61 g/t gold from 16 metres and 4 metres at 1.76 g/t from 24 metres.

Kingston managing director Andrew Corbett said the initial results were a great start to exploration around Livingstone’s Find.
“It’s a big area with geochemical anomalies over 5 kilometres of strike, so we have a lot more drill testing to do,” he said.
“Getting grades like this in our first round of air-core drilling is a fantastic start.
“We’ll head back to site and re-sample all these anomalous composites as soon as possible, and we expect to be back there with an RC rig for the next round of drilling later in the year.”
