Drill testing gold targets to Menzies
In September 2019, Kingwest completed the acquisition of a 100% interest in the Menzies Gold Project.
The project hosts a 171,310-ounce gold JORC resource grading 2.2 g/t across the Yunndaga, Pericles, Bellenger and Warrior deposits.
The initial 24-hole, 7,800-metre drill program is underway testing high-grade extensions to Yunndaga, Lady Shenton, Pericles, and Selkirk.
Assay results remain pending and are expected in the near future.
