  • New Mustang Prospect– evidence of bladed spodumene crystals at surface, large up to 100m wide x 1-3km strike, drill planning in progress.
  • New Cobra Prospect – follow-up mapping and rock chipping near anomalous Lithium rock chip results up to 240.8ppm and 71.9ppm, 20km from Greenbushes. Large 100-200m wide x 1-3km strike.
  • New LCT suite mineralisation targeting for new drill prospects continues.
  • Drilling completed at the DBGM Prospect for 4 RC holes, results pending.

Kula’s Chief Executive Officer Ric Dawson said,

“The Kirup Project is progressing to drill programmes on these new prospects.

These new Mustang and Cobra Prospects with evident spodumene, potential LCT suite mineralisation are an encouraging development from some regional work to add to our advancing lithium portfolio of projects.”

Mustang Prospect

A reconnaissance mapping and rock chip sampling has detected bladed spodumene and pegmatite providing a walk-up drill target for Kula to test for LCT mineralisation below the weathered zone, estimated to be 15-50m as is evident at the nearby Greenbushes Mine that too has a deep weathering profile down to a similar depth.

*Visual estimates of mineral abundance should never be considered a proxy or substitute for laboratory analysis where concentrations or grade are the factor of principal economic interest. Visual estimates also potentially provide no information regarding impurities or deleterious physical properties relevant to valuations.

Brunswick Project – 100%

DBGM Prospect – Drilling now completed.

Recent RC drilling has concluded with 4 holes for 360 metres being drilled into felsic augen-gneiss, 4m composite samples have been sent for geochemistry analysis to determine the potential LCT and gold mineralisation.

Results will be reported in due course.

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 announced 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, potentially Lithiumy, Caesium ot Tantalum near the world class Greenbushes Lithium Mine.
