New G-Star Gold Prospect identified at Marvel Loch-Airfield Gold Project

⛏️ Kula Gold Limited is pleased to announce a new gold prospect has been identified at the Marvel Loch-Airfield Gold Project (KGD 100%) at Southern Cross.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • G-Star Gold Prospect identified from first pass Auger geochemistry sampling.
  • 217 follow up auger geochemistry samples recently completed.
  • Results of up to 18ppb gold define a northwest- southeast striking geochemical anomaly that extends over 2,200m and is open to the northwest.
  • Located 3.5km north of the Nevoria Gold Mine (+600,000oz gold), and 9km east of the 3 Moz Marvel Loch Gold Mine, the G-Star Prospect sits within the Ghooli Dome.
  • Kula geologists consider the possibility that G-Star is underlain by amphibolite and BIF greenstone (the predominant host rock of most of the gold deposits in WA).

First pass auger geochemistry sampling has defined the newly named G-Star Prospect, which extends over a strike length of 2,200m in the Southeast of E77/2621 (Figure 1).

Sahara Operations (Australia) Pty Ltd completed first pass auger geochemistry sampling on behalf of Kula in April 2021 (refer ASX releases 12th April 2021 and 2nd July 2021), with 215 samples taken over the G-Star area (Figure 2).

Samples were taken at a median depth of 2m and targeted the interface below the transported cover. Results of up to 18ppb gold define a northwest- southeast striking geochemical anomaly that extends over 2,200m and is open to the northwest (Figure 2).

Kula engaged Sahara’s Mobile Auger Rig to complete a further 217 infill auger geochemistry samples at G-Star during October 2021.

Company geologists were onsite for the start of the program to ensure sampling of the correct horizon via appropriate sampling technique. Haematitic lateritic soils and saprolite clays—a favourable sampling medium—were observed. Sample locations are provided in Figure 2.

Kula geologists consider the possibility that G-Star is underlain by amphibolite and BIF greenstone (the predominant host rock of most of the gold deposits in WA).

G-Star may be much like the previously unmapped greenstone discovered by Kula in a major technical breakthrough during RC drilling at the nearby Crayfish Gold Prospect (refer ASX release 2nd July 2021).

The highly prospective greenstone belts of the Southern Cross Region have produced over 15m ounces of gold to date, at an average of 3-5g/t gold and are the reason Kula staked this region as its lead project.

Should auger geochemistry provide sufficient data to define a drill target within the prospect area, then a RC drill rig will be mobilised with some urgency to test the target. Results from geochemical assays (gold and multi-element) will be reported in due course.

RC drilling of the Boomerang Kaolin Prospect is scheduled to start next week.
