Minerals Exploration Company Kingston Resources has completed drilling at its 100% owned Six Mile Hill Copper-Gold Project in South Australia.
Six Mile Hill is Kingston’s flagship exploration project that is part of the South Australian Mineral Systems Drilling Program 2015.
The program is an innovative collaboration between government, researchers and industry and has the potential to lead to the discovery of new mineral deposits.
The program comprises significant cash and in-kind contributions from the South Australian Department of State Development and the Deep Exploration Technologies Cooperative Research Centre.
The Six Mile Hill project comprises three exploration licences, EL 4494, EL 5498, EL 5591; with a total area of 967km2 located northwest of Port Augusta.
“The company is pleased to provide an update regarding the collaborative Mineral Systems Drilling Program with the Geological Survey of South Australia and the Deep Exploration Technologies Cooperative Research Centre at Kingston’s 100% owned Six Mile Hill Project. The program is now complete with four holes drilled for a total of 2787.8m,” Kingston said in an ASX Announcement.
The third hole intersected rhyolites an basalts of the Gawler Range Volcanics (GRV) from surface till 262.6m, while the fourth hole intersected rhyolites and basalts of the GRV, completing at a depth of 843.9m.
Kingston said that it has selected intervals from the third and fourth hole for geochemical analysis with results due in several weeks.
Drilling at the Six Mile Hill copper-gold project commenced in the beginning of August 2015.
