  • Reconnaissance RC drilling is testing structural gold targets and lithium targets from surface pegmatites.

  • Airborne drone magnetics has defined a structure below a lithium geochemistry anomaly and has generated drill targets coincident with lithium soil anomalies.

  • Brunswick Project 35kms from Greenbushes lithium mine, one of the largest hard rock lithium mines in the world.

Kula’s Chief Executive Officer Ric Dawson said:

“We are excited to have commenced our reconnaissance drilling program at the DBGM Prospect.

Our team has developed a model to target and now it is time to test it over the coming weeks.

The combination of some very encouraging, outcrop, geochemistry and geophysics ranks this high on our priority list and we expect the drilling to be completed at the end of May.

We look forward to sharing the outcomes of this work with our Shareholders once the preliminary pLIBS and assay results are returned.”

DBGM Prospect

Recent mapping has identified pegmatites at surface as per RK002592 and RK002593 (Figure 3 and 4), these have been sent off for laboratory analysis but preliminary pLlBS were able to determine anomalous reading for LCT mineralisation.

Owing to the very selective and not representative nature of pLIBS reading for whole rock analysis individual values are not being reported.

Drone Flown Magnetics

The Company engaged Atlas Geophysics to fly a 25m line spacing 25m height drone magnetic survey.

Upcoming Activities

Following on from producing an exploration target model, with these various overlapping exploration techniques, the Company has now commenced with drilling contractor Stark Drilling to proceed with a reconnaissance drill program to test the above anomalous areas.

The Company will provide an ASX release upon ongoing operations of significance.

About the Company
Kula Gold Limited (ASX: KGD) is a Western Australian mineral exploration company with expertise in the discovery of new mineral deposits in WA.

The strategy is via large land positions and structural geological settings capable of hosting ~+1m oz gold or equivalent sized deposits including lithium.

The Company is advancing projects within the South West region of WA for lithium and gold at Brunswick, as well as gold and PGE at Westonia adjacent to the producing Edna May Gold Mine (owned by ASX:RMS) in the WA goldfields.

The Company has a history of large resource discoveries with its foundation being the Woodlark Island gold project in PNG, (+1m oz Gold) which was subsequently joint ventured and sold to (ASX: GPR).

Kula’s recent discovery was the large 93.3mt Boomerang kaolin deposit near Southern Cross WA – Maiden resource annouced 20 July 2022. This project is in the economic study phase and moving to PE funding or trade JV.

The exploration team are busily working towards the next mineral discovery.
