⛏️ Kula Gold Limited is pleased to announce that RC drilling of the Boomerang Prospect at their 100% owned Marvel Loch-Airfield Gold Project has resumed in January 2022 following the festive break.
• 52 RC holes (2,887m) drilled in late 2021, with 10 holes (approx. 600m) of original drill plan remaining.
• Extension of original program by 18 additional holes (approx. 1080m).
• Logging of RC holes to date show the white kaolin clays have an average vertical thickness of 29m, intercepted from around 5.7m below surface.
• Gold potential at the Boomerang Prospect is being tested by extending RC holes through to saprock or fresh rock, on discretion of the supervising geologist.
Review of geologist’s logging data for holes completed to date has warranted a further 18 holes (approx.
1,080m) be added to the original 62-hole drill program for a new total of 80 designed holes. The revised drill
program spans approximately 1.9 km from north to south, and approximately 2 km from east to west,
covering an area of around 3 km² (see Figure 2).
Originally designed to define the geographic extent and assess the resource potential of kaolin and halloysite
within the Boomerang Prospect, KGD is pleased to announce that RC drilling is now with the intent to deliver
a Preliminary Resource Estimate for the Boomerang Kaolin Prospect.
KGD is working with an independent Resource Geologist, in anticipation of being able to calculate a
preliminary resource estimate for the Boomerang Kaolin Prospect, should assays and a reasonable
expectation of economic extraction warrant.
The kaolin horizon at Boomerang averages 29m true vertical thickness (ranging 5m to 59m), with kaolin
clays starting 5.7m below the surface on average (ranging 2m to 11m), calculated from all RC holes that
have intercepted white kaolin clays to date.
To test the gold potential of the Boomerang Prospect, drill holes are being extended below the kaolin
horizon into either saprock or fresh rock, at the discretion of the supervising geologist on assessment of the
lithology, alteration, mineralogy and structure observable within the chips, in consideration with the
location of the drillhole and KGD’s evolving geological interpretation of the Marvel Loch – Airfield Project.
Drilling of the remaining 28 holes (approx. 2,680m) of the extended 80-hole program is expected to be
completed within the next 14 days.
