⛏️  Kula Gold Limited reports results of a recent rock chipping and mapping programme in the vicinity of the historical Camilleri/Donnybrook Mine with an assay result of up to 11.19 g/t Gold.

The Company has done more intensive mapping of the outcropping veins that have haematite alternation and results are at the laboratory pending assay.

Kula Gold’s Managing Director Ric Dawson comments:

“Kula Gold is particularly interested in the Camilleri Prospect in a historically rich area that had gold production of 236.7 ounces from 53 tons of material, (equates to 146g/t). This neglected area had previous miners plan drill holes which for unknown reasons did not eventuate.

Hopefully for Kula Gold’s benefit this historical oversight will be fortuitous.

In addition, the Jarvis Prospect nearby provides excellent gold potential due to identification of unrecorded historic shafts and high order soil anomalies.”

  • Focused gold exploration this quarter has yielded highly prospective gold mineralisation in the wholly owned Brunswick Project.
  • Substantial gold prospectivity identified at the historic Camilleri Mine and Jarvis Prospects near the historic Mt Cara and Hunter Venture Gold Mines with assays to 11.2g/t gold where past production was extremely rich at 146g/t gold.

⛏️  Camilleri Prospect

The Camilleri Prospect covers the historical Camilleri and Blackwood Venture gold producers of 236.73 ounces, and 24.0 ounces respectively. The Company has received laboratory results of up to 11.19g/t gold from a recent chip and mapping programme.

This together with the previous Kula Gold rock chips in the near vicinity with grades of 0.8 – 3.3g/t gold (Table 1) is highly encouraging for a more advanced exploration programme in the coming quarters. The Company has an existing Landowner Agreement and has submitted a Programme of Work to facilitate the above.

The Camilleri Prospect is in the regional setting of the Donnybrook Gold Mine (DBGM) and is in a gold trend that is located near the intersection of the major Donnybrook Shear Zone and the Darling Fault Zone and sits along/adjacent to this main gold corridor.

⛏️  Jarvis Prospect

The gold prospectivity of the Jarvis Prospect was identified following a recent geological review of ex-Metana Minerals NL soil sampling and drilling during the mid-1980’s, see Figure 2.

The Jarvis Prospect was scout drilled in the 1980’s following up a peak 500ppm soil anomaly with 4 percussion drill holes that used inferior equipment which resulted in poor and contaminated sample recovery.

Kula Gold has a mapping, rock chipping and UFF soil sample programme underway this quarter to provide a better gold definition for advanced

Further fieldwork on this epithermal style gold target is in progress.

Further results will be reported in due course.

Visual estimates also potentially provide no information regarding impurities or deleterious physical properties relevant to valuations.

⛏️  Other Gold Projects

A substantial level of work is in progress on the Boomerang, Stingray, Mustang, Westonia and other gold prospects and significant results will be reported over the next few weeks.

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 Gold and Lithium at Kirup and Brunswick – near the world class Greenbushes Lithium Mine, Gold at the Boomerang/Stingray Prospects in the WA goldfields at Southern Cross, and 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).
