Misima resource update
Kingston recently boosted the gold bounty of its Misima project in Papua New Guinea by 15% to 3.21 million ounces with silver resources also up 30% to 18.2 million ounces.
The new resource which incorporates results of recent successful drilling programs and updated gold price assumptions is 105 million tonnes at 0.93 g/t gold and 5.4 g/t silver.
It also delivered a 17% increase in total indicated gold ounces, which are available for conversion to ore reserves, to 49.9 million tonnes at 0.95 g/t for 1.52 million ounces.
At the time managing director Andrew Corbett said: “This is a great result for Kingston shareholders, with the substantial increase in gold and silver ounces firmly establishing Misima as one of the most exciting new mid-tier gold development opportunities in the Asia-Pacific.
“The significant increase in overall ounces, and in particular the 17% increase in indicated ounces to 1.52 million ounces, provides a fantastic platform from which to launch our mining studies.”
