Kin Mining uncovers numerous gold intervals at Eagle-Crow discovery within Cardinia project

Aircore drilling at Kin Mining’s (ASX: KIN) Eagle-Crow prospect within the Cardinia gold project in Western Australia has uncovered numerous gold intervals, which the company describes as “outstanding”.

The assays indicate two parallel mineralised zones over “substantial strike length”, which Kin says could lead to an “extensive, shallow gold discovery”.

Initial 4m composite assay highlights were 8m at 7.9 grams per tonne gold from 28m; 4m at 8.31g/t gold from surface; and 4m at 4.44g/t gold from surface.

Kin noted the results confirm mineralisation is the same style as other significant deposits within the project including the nearby 311,000 ounce Bruno-Lewis deposit and Cardinia Hill.

Advancing Eagle-Crow

Aircore drilling at Eagle-Crow began and February and was completed before the end of March. The program comprised 17,035m for 399 holes at 200m line spacing.

A regional soil and rock sampling program late last year was undertaken across the historic Eagle and Crow workings.

Rock chips from the program returned high-grade results leading to Kin’s decision to drill the area.

‘Excellent’ initial drill results

Kin managing director Andrew Munckton said the latest assays were “excellent” given the reconnaissance drilling campaign had been wide-spaced and shallow and underpinned by regional soil and rock chip sampling.

“The presence of two parallel mineralised zones and shallow high-grade domains that appear to extend for up to 1km in strike length each within a broader system that runs for up to 5km, all highlight the potential of the western side of the large Cardinia mineralised system,” he explained.

Mr Munckton added the company’s “rigorous and systematic” exploration approach at the project already delivered a “number of high-grade discoveries” over the last year.

“We believe Eagle-Crow could be a new addition to this list. We should also remember that Eagle-Crow is just one of several new targets which we have defined across the broader Cardinia gold project.”

“As we speak, reverse circulation drilling is underway on the Eastern Corridor to test seven recently identified targets, which we believe have the potential to yield further high-grade discoveries with strong geological similarities to Cardinia Hill,” Mr Munckton noted.

The company is awaiting the remaining assays from the aircore program before it begins planning a reverse circulation and diamond drilling program.
