⛏️ Kula Gold Limited reports progress on potential Lithium bearing pegmatites at the Mustang and Cobra Prospects in the Kirup Project, approximately 20km West of the world’s largest hard rock lithium mine, Greenbushes Lithium Mine in Western Australia.

  • Mustang Prospect – recent mapping, rock chipping and soils programme confirms several pegmatites with strikes up to 1km and over 100m wide, drill planning in progress.
  • Cobra Prospect – recent mapping and rock chipping near anomalous lithium (Li) rock chip results up to 240.8ppm and 71.9ppm, 20km from Greenbushes has increased the strike to ~2km and greater than 300m wide.
  • New LCT suite mineralisation targeting for new drill prospects continues

Kula’s Chief Executive Officer Ric Dawson comments:

“The Mustang Prospect is progressing to be our first target for drilling out of the two new lithium prospects at the Kirup Project in the next month or two.

The extent of the strike at the Mustang and Cobra Prospects with potential LCT suite mineralisation is testament to the lithium prospectivity being uncovered in this world class lithium region.”

Mustang Prospect

A recent mapping, rock chip and soil sampling programme is progressing to a 1km x 100m pegmatite zone providing a walk-up drill target for Kula to test for LCT mineralisation below the weathered zone estimated at 30-50m, similar to the nearby Greenbushes Mine.

The Mustang Prospect sits in the northern part of E70-5452, in an area of NNW trending magnetic lineaments, comprises a series of NNW striking pegmatitic bodies that occur within intercalated felsic gneiss and amphibolite sequences. Preliminary mapping has identified several pegmatite bodies with probable strike lengths approximately 1km and greater than 100m width.

Exploration drill planning is in progress and further results will be reported in due course.

Cobra Prospect

Cobra Prospect sits in the central part of E70-5452, on a regional NE magnetic lineament.

Pegmatites with high lithium content (up to 240ppm) containing muscovites, tourmalines and garnets (fractionated minerals) have been mapped out across an area of ~ 2km in strike length and >300m wide. Recent mapping continues to increase the dimensions of this prospect.

The mineralogy of pegmatites is composed of predominantly quartz, feldspar, tourmaline, muscovite, garnet, others (to be determined). Generally, poorly foliated and with a grainsize locally very coarse, up to 10cm crystals of feldspars, and muscovite crystals up to ~5cm.

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.
