Phase 1 drilling operations at KML’s Kitlanya East (“KIT-E”) Project have now resumed. The drill rig is now drilling hole KIT-E_03 which is designed to test a disruption in marker conductors delineated from detailed airborne electromagnetic data (“AEM”) along an interpreted, locally developed, anticlinal structure which may provide a trapsite for mineralisation in a similar setting to Sandfire’s A4 deposit to the north.

Follow-on drill hole KIT-E_04 has been designed to test for Cu-Ag on the interpreted Ngwako Pan – D’Kar Formation contact on an interpreted anticline limb (analogous to Cupric Canyon Capital’s and Zone 5 deposit settings), whilst planned holes KIT-E_05 and KIT-E_06, aim to test for mineralisation in small structurally bounded folds which may present trapsites for mineralisation.Banana Zone

The Phase 1 drilling programme is testing stratigraphic, structural and geophysical targets prospective for hosting copper-silver mineralisation analogous to the Sandfire Resources T3 and A4 deposits situated 3km and 8km to the north respectively. We look forward to providing further drill programme updates in due course.”Kitlanya East Project
