⛏️  Kula Gold Limited reports that the Kula Board are pleased with the progress, and the current RC drilling program has been increased to a planned 2,000m (originally 1,000m) at the Cobra Lithium Prospect – based on Kula’s technical team’s recommendation.

Cobra is located approximately 20km West of Greenbushes in Western Australia; the world’s largest hard rock Lithium mine.

The increased program will provide better geological understanding and coverage of the 3.2km of surface mapped pegmatites.

Kula’s Managing Director Ric Dawson comments:

“With what we are intercepting, we have doubled the Cobra Lithium Prospect RC drill program, including Hole 23CPRC001 which will be re-entered and extended deeper.”

“The first RC hole went to a downhole depth of 168m and the second hole 23CPRC002, to 174m. The 4m composite samples for all of the first 252m of drilling have been submitted to the laboratory for analysis.”

⛏️  Cobra Lithium Prospect

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

Pegmatites with high lithium content (up to 240ppm) containing muscovites, tourmalines and garnets (fractionated minerals) have been mapped at surface and have increased to ~3.2km in strike length and up to 500m wide. Mapping continues to increase the potential dimensions of this prospect.

The mineralogy of surface 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.

The initial RC drilling programme of 1,000m has now been increased to a planned 2,000m based on Kula’s technical teams recommendation.

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 Kirup and Brunswick – near the world class Greenbushes Lithium Mine, as well Lithium at the Taliah-Nadia-Sasha Prospects in the WA goldfields at Southern Cross, and Gold and PGE at Westonia (adjacent to the producing Edna May Gold Mine – owned by ASX:RMS).
Kula discovered 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 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).
