⛏️ MARVEL LOCH PROJECT – E77/2621 – 100% Owned – KAOLIN & GOLD

The Company reported that recent geochemical sampling and geophysical interpretation identified two new and advanced two other gold prospects at the Marvel Loch Project, near Southern Cross WA.

Boomerang Gold Prospect

The Company reported that geochemical sampling commenced, and satellite interpretation enhanced the Boomerang Gold Prospect at the Marvel Loch Project.

Figure 2: Kula’s Marvel Loch Project featuring the key prospects within.

The planned close spaced UFF soil sampling commenced on a 20m x 20m grid to locate the ideal drill targets. RC drilling that occurred in November 2021 for the Kaolin resource drill out on a ver cal 200m x 200m programme intersected an anomalous 1m at 2.6g/t gold from 54m in 21BMRC024, geophysics and satellite imagery interpretation work completed recently shows that a distinctive offset structure in the magnetics and now a satellite Sentinel -2 arsenopyrite anomaly (in Figure 3 below) is significant due to existing known gold mines in the region containing this mineral and that the gold intercept is on the edge of the key target zone.

Of note is that the intercept also was at the amphibolite interface near the bottom of hole.

Stingray Gold Prospect

The newly identified Stingray Gold Prospect was derived from a small low cost ini al UFF soil sample programme over a circular magnetic feature shown in figure 5 below, outlining a coincident anomalous gold in magnetic structure around and through the Stingray Gold Prospect. The Kula team notes that the size is approximately 23km in length and will now infill this prospect with a more extensive UFF programme to refine drill targets. The strike lengths are over 1km and are one of the prime ingredients for a substantial gold deposit.

Additional Gold Prospects

The Kula team is continuing to further develop existing gold prospects, 311 Prospect, Nevoria North Prospect and G-Star Prospect. Results from geochemical assays (gold and multi-element) will be reported in due course.

Boomerang Kaolin Deposit at Marvel Loch

The Company continued discussions during the quarter to advance development of the large Boomerang Kaolin Deposit of 93.3 million tonnes, near excellent infrastructure in Southern Cross WA.

Engineering studies continued for downstream processing on site to produce metakaolin products for the Green Construction Industry.

Mineralogical/metallurgical test work by Sedgman has been completed confirming the suitability of the raw material for green cement as well as many uses such as paint, rubber and pesticide production. Discussions with potential acquirers and developers of the project continue with a view to monetising this asset.

⛏️ KIRUP LITHIUM PROJECT –E70/5452 – (70% LCT mineralisation rights, 30% Sentinel Exploration Ltd)

Cobra Lithium Prospect

During the quarter under review, the Company reported that the results of the recent RC drilling programme at the Cobra Lithium Prospect failed to intercept economic lithium mineralisation with the best result being in hole 23CPRC002 with a composite interval of 4m at 178ppm from 116m.

Gold, Base Metal & Non-LCT Mineral Rights

Agreement was reached during the quarter between the joint venture par es to include all the gold, base metal and non LCT mineral rights into the existing joint venture for a consideration of reimbursement of costs of $10,000.

Cobra Gold Prospect

The gold prospectivity of the Cobra Prospect has increased with the sampling of a rock outcrop in the near vicinity of the recent RC drill programme containing both vuggy and sugary quartz. Whilst drilling the Kula team identified a significant epithermal style gold target near the Cobra Prospect and will be the subject of further fieldwork.

Mustang Prospect

The ini al RC drill programme was curtailed a er one RC hole due to wet ground conditions in September 2023. The Company intends to plan another drill programme on more prospective pegmatite targets once further fieldwork is completed using vectors leaned from the Cobra drilling. The gold prospectivity has also increased at the Mustang Prospect with the sampling of a rock outcrop in the near vicinity of the ini al RC drill programme with a sample KI000154 that returned a fire assay reading with 3.5g/t including a rock description containing vuggy quartz.
