Kingston Resources Ltd (ASX:KSN) has resumed drilling at the Livingstone Gold Project, northwest of Meekatharra in Western Australia, with contractors mobilising at site last week.

The 9,000-metre reverse circulation (RC) and aircore program aims to extend and infill mineralisation identified in the previous round of reconnaissance drilling.

Previous drilling identified grade along strike length of 2 kilometres at the Kingsley prospect, with results including 5 metres at 6.56 g/t gold.

Holes will also be drilled at the Drake and Dampier prospects to further define both areas.

Kingston managing director Andrew Corbett said the company was excited to be back drilling after receiving excellent results from its last program.

Corbett said: “The initial target, Kingsley, is located within the Livingstone’s Find area which is our biggest geochemical target.

“We’ve only properly tested a relatively small part of it and it’s already generated some great results.”

The Livingstone Gold Project covers a 204 square kilometre area of the Peak Hill mineral field in the western Bryah Basin.

Historic mining at Livingstone’s Find, the largest historic producer in the Robinson Range sheet area, amounted to 1,260 ounces at an average of 21.85 g/t.

Kingston’s initial drilling program focused on following up historic high-grade intersections at Homestead, which hosts an inferred resource.

Livingstone’s Find is the site of historic mining but has undergone limited exploration work.

Historical drilling returned intercepts such as 14 metres at 2.71 g/t and a single fence drilled in 1997 returned 4 metres at 2.29 g/t and 1 metre at 4.1 g/t all near surface.
