Results from Lewis earlier this week included 19.9 metres at 1.84 g/t gold and 4.8 metres at 17.6 g/t gold

Kin Mining NL (ASX:KIN) has resumed drilling at the Lewis Prospect within the Leonora Gold Project (LGP) in Western Australia.

The phase II diamond drilling program aims to further define recently identified broader zones of gold mineralisation over a strike of 1,200 metres.

This includes low grade epithermal gold mineralisation and deeper, higher grade volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) style mineralisation.

Results received earlier this week demonstrate a pathway for an upgraded JORC resource estimate for the Lewis Prospect.

Kin’s managing director Andrew Munckton said: “It’s pleasing to be back on the ground at the LGP undertaking the follow-up work from the successful Lewis phase I diamond drilling.

“Phase II is aimed at confirming the new interpretation of a epithermal and gold-rich VMS setting for the Lewis mineralisation and extending into fresh rock the gold mineralisation over a strike length of approximately 1,200 metres.” 

By growing the resource base within the LGP, Kin is lowering the project's development risk by increasing project economics.

Metallurgical test work is also underway

Metallurgical test work is underway for the seven diamond holes completed in the phase I program to determine the amenability of the gold and other metal mineralisation to standard CIL treatment.

Further test work is also planned to assess the preferred treatment approach to the sulphide-rich other metal mineralisation.
