⛏️ Kula Gold Limited reports that the reconnaissance drilling has been completed at the main ‘eye’ structure (Figure 3) at its 100% owned Westonia Project (Figure 1) located 5km from the Edna May Gold Mine.

Drilling has now tested six high-priority targets at the Westonia Project near Edna May Gold Mine.

The drilling program consisted of 1 Aircore hole and 26 RC holes for 2,292m of drilling as per Table 1. The drilling at the Westonia Project intersected encouraging rock types consistent with an Archean Greenstone sequence and similar to surrounding greenstones.

There were zones of alteration with potential mineralisation to be determined. 614 composite samples from drill cuttings (Figure 2) have been sent for analysis with 97 composite samples already sent. From the most recent drilling, 90 composite samples have been requested for expedited processing.

Kula Chief Executive Officer Ric Dawson said.

“We currently await the laboratory results now that the drilling has been completed. Our reconnaissance drilling program has provided the Company with optimism on these exciting grass roots prospects at the Westonia Project adjacent to the ~2moz Edna May Gold Mine.”

  • Aircore and RC drilling has been completed across a number of previously untested Archean greenstone targets throughout the project taking advantage of cleared paddocks within the tenement.
  • Reconnaissance drilling has observed zones of alteration with potential mineralisation to be confirmed.
  • The Westonia Project is situated less than 5km from, and within the same structural system as the 2Moz operating Edna May Gold Mine.
