Ginamwama is within the southern area of Kingston’s flagship Misima Gold Project, adjacent to the historical Placer mill and 2 kilometres south of the Umuna resource.
The company previously had defined 500 metres of strike at the prospect and the newly-discovered gold-bearing veins are of a style of mineralisation not previously identified at Misima.
Kingston managing director Andrew Corbett said Ginamwamwa was developing into an outstanding discovery.
“To date we have explored from the haul road more than 500 metres to the east and this has yielded very positive results.
“It’s also important to remember that sampling is yet to be done on the western side of the road, so the final size of this discovery remains untested.
“Current access to Ginamwamwa is from the historical mine roads developed by Placer, allowing easy access to continue exploration work and ultimately drilling at the prospect.”
Ginamwamwa remains open to the west and further mineralisation is being identified by ongoing mapping to the east.
Mapping and sampling will continue to move eastward and Kingston is confident this will broaden the scale of the prospect.
The company has collected over 600 channel samples with assays still pending and intends to generate drill targets for 2019.
The visible gold observed is associated with ferruginous oxidised quartz veins outcropping in channels excavated by Kingson’s exploration team.
Visible gold is rare and the Umuna mineralisation is categorised as a low-sulphidation epithermal.
Observations of coarse visible gold in quartz veins with a sulphide association at Ginamwamwa are thus an unusual phenomenon for the project.
Ginamwamwa is outside of the Umuna Fault Zone which contains the bulk of the current 2.8 million-ounce Misima JORC resource.
