Kin Mining drills 50+ metre gold intersections at Lewis East

Assays include 4 metres at 1.6 g/t gold from 8 metres and 53 metres at 1.3 g/t gold from 4 metres.

All recent and historical results to be analysed to plan the next drilling program

Kin Mining NL (ASX:KIN) has received final assays results from the December 2019 aircore drilling program at its flagship Cardinia Gold Project in Western Australia.

The results have identified new shallow, large, ore grade zones of mineralisation at Lewis East and broad areas of anomalous alteration mineralisation at Lewis West.

Highlights from Lewis East included:

  • 4 metres at 11.6 g/t gold from 8 metres;
  • 53 metres at 1.3 g/t from  4 metres;  
  • 13 metres at 1.0 g/t from 24 metres;
  • 32 metres at 1.1 g/t from 0 metres; and  
  • 16 metres at 1.3 g/t from 8 metres.

The Lewis East prospect is a 1.4-kilometre-long surface gold anomaly located 1-kilometre from the proposed Cardinia processing plant.

47 aircore holes for 1,608 metres at Lewis East out of the total 8,761-metre drill program across six prospects.

Objective to find gold within 5-kilometre radius

Kin’s managing director Andrew Munckton said: “The 2019 aircore drilling program completed in December has been highly successful and supports our key objective of identifying new zones of mineralisation with potential to enhance the current CGP mine plan as outlined in the pre-feasibility study completed in mid-2019.

“The campaign has confirmed our belief that the Cardinia area holds substantial zones of high-grade gold mineralisation within broader zones of alteration containing lower grade mineralisation in addition to the Mineral Resources that have previously been defined.

Lewis East one of three significant discoveries

“The exploration team have made significant new discoveries at Cardinia Hill, Comedy King and Lewis East during this campaign which was the first substantial exploration effort outside the established deposits in over six years within the region and the first in the Cardinia area for more than a decade.

“These latest results confirm the presence of large zones of epithermal vein style mineralisation with occasional high-grade gold zones within broader areas of lower grade alteration at Lewis East.

“The Lewis West AC results also show a strike continuous zone of broad alteration mineralisation consistent with the narrow veins mapped at surface at Golden Dolerite that returned high-grade rock chip results.

“The results to date are indicative of a large mineralised system metres at Cardinia consistent with the crosscutting Lewis Fault and its other parallel subsidiary faults.

Follow-up work to commence this quarter

“These structures will be the key target areas in our future exploration program.

“Cardinia Hill, Comedy King and Lewis East appear to be large scale zones of gold mineralisation which remain open and warrant follow-up drilling.

“The close proximity to the processing plant site only serves to further enhance the results.

“We look forward to this follow-up work commencing in the March quarter 2020.”

Recent Comedy King discovery

Assay from Lewis East and Lewis West follow recent assays receives earlier in the weeks that discovered gold at the Comedy King prospect within the Cardinia Project.

Results from Comedy King featured 12 metres at 14.9 g/t gold from 4 metres, 20 metres at 2.3 g/t gold from 0 metres and 4 metres at 8.3 g/t gold from 20 metres to the end-of-hole.

The results from Comedy King are indicative of a significant mineralised system.
