Kin Mining reveals more high-grade zones at Cardinia Gold Project

Kin Mining NL (ASX:KIN) has revealed further high-grade zones of mineralisation at its Cardinia Gold Project (CGP) in Western Australia after receiving assay results from aircore drilling completed in December.

High-grade assay results have been received from 1-metre split samples at the Comedy King and Lewis East prospects which are within 5 kilometres of the processing plant site at the CGP.

Best results are 3 metres at 12.1 g/t from 21 metres to the end-of-hole, including 2 metres at 17.1 g/t from 21 metres at Comedy King and 11 metres at 5.28 g/t from 20 metres, including 4 metres at 12.4 g/t from 26 metres at Lewis East.

Kin managing director Andrew Munckton said December drilling defined three new deposits at Comedy King, Lewis East and Cardinia Hill, which are all within 5 kilometres of the plant site.

He said: “The mineralised zones highlighted by 4-metre composite sampling are now being refined with the 1-metre sampling.

“At Cardinia Hill, the western half of Comedy King and northern part of Lewis East, a clear pattern is emerging.”

Other strong Comedy King results:

  • 6 metres at 2.25 g/t from 28 metres, and
  • 8 metres at 2.04 g/t from 7 metres

Further results from Lewis East:

  • 8 metres at 2.04 g/t from 27 metres, and
  • 1 metre at 33.8 g/t from 10 metres

Munckton said: “Results have confirmed the higher-grade nature of the mineralisation across generally narrower zones associated with strong alteration, sulphides in the fresh ores and quartz veining.

“The alteration zones around high-grade intersections also exhibit mineralisation which is typically lower grade.”

A full interpretation of all the recent drilling results in conjunction with previous drilling results is underway.
