The company recently added 33,900 ounces to the indicated and inferred resource at Helens deposit within the Cardinia Mining Centre of Leonora Gold Project in Western Australia.
The updated estimate of 70,900 ounces includes a 29% increase in tonnage, 49% increase in grade and 92% increase in ounces.
This supports a larger open pit development at Helens, which is 2-kilometres from the Cardinia processing plant site.
The update was made after all assay results were received from a phase I reverse circulation and diamond drilling program completed in late July.
Drilling focused on testing mineralised lodes to a depth of 150 metres below the surface and advancing the geological and structural understanding of the area.
Infill drilling of near-surface mineralisation to a minimum drill density of 40 metres by 40 metres was also completed.
Kin is planning preliminary optimisation and pit design works to identify areas where additional drilling is warranted to reduce risk and improve the resource estimate quality in the Helens area.
