Kula Gold investing in best technology for Brunswick Project

Olympus Vanta 50Kv PXRF in action.

Kula Gold’s exploration team is utilising the best technology as they ramp up exploration of their newly acquired Brunswick Project.

The use of an Olympus Vanta 50Kv PXRF (X-Ray Fluorescence Machine) has already yielded results with the identification of potential Ultramafics amongst the Western Gneiss Terrain.

>> Excerpt from Brunswick Project shows significant advancement:

“Site 4 (as seen in Figure 1 below) was a NE trending magnetic high which is defined by a NE trending meta-ultramafic unit with PXRF readings of up to 2000ppm Ni (0.2%).  A thin section was prepared by Roger Townend and described as a Hornblende schist or Amphibolite (meta-Ultramafic/Mafic precursor).

Readings of the rock-chip samples were taken with an Olympus Vanta 50Kv PXRF, which have been submitted to Bureau Veritas for comparative assays.  It should be noted that PXRF readings were taken from the rock-chips and as such are not representative of whole rock analysis, and were used for rock geochemistry purposes only.  The comparative assays will be released in due course.

Exploration at Brunswick continues and results will be reported as further advancements are made.”

Kula Gold applied for an exploration license (ELA70/5599) for the Brunswick Project which covers 240km2 which is located between the towns of Donnybrook and Brunswick Junction, approx. 150km south of Perth.  The licence is located in the highly prospective Western Gneiss Terrain which hosts Chalice Gold Mines, Julimar Ni-Cu-PGE Project to the North.

Kula Gold's exploration license (E70/5599) for the Brunswick Project covers 240km² and is located between the towns of Donnybrook and Brunswick Junction, approx. 150km south of Perth, WA.

Brunswick Project shows significant advancement

Kula Gold Limited reports significant exploration advancement on its Brunswick Ni-Cu-PGE Project.

Recent fieldwork successfully identified potential Ultramafics in this new licence in the prospective Western Gneiss Terrain in the south west of Western Australia, including PXRF readings up to 0.2%Ni at surface. This may be the first recorded Ultramafics in this under-explored district.

These are exceptional results from such early stage work, provide validation for the basis of acquisition, and focus areas of interest within Kula’s large 240km2 landholding. The Western Gneiss Terrain also hosts Chalice Gold Mines, Julimar Ni-Cu-PGE Project to the north.

The open file magnetic data shows some subdued magnetic highs which Kula Gold considered worth investigating further to see if the subdued magnetic response was masking potential Ultramafics in the area.

Kula Gold’s Brunswick Project (ELA70/5599) covers 240km² and is located between the towns of Donnybrook and Brunswick Junction, approx. 150km south of Perth, WA.

Reconnaissance fieldwork has been completed and several target areas were field checked using public road access which are shown in Figure 1 below.

The Brunswick gold occurrence at Site 1 consists of two old shafts which have been covered by large trees and metal.  There is no recorded drilling at this historic mine which consists of Au mineralization in pyritic quartzite and schist exposed in shafts at the site.

Sub-crop at Site 2 revealed a strongly silicified pillow basalt that is deemed responsible for the higher magnetic response.

Site 3 consists of a Qtz-limonite-sericite schist which was K-altered and showed consistent anomalous Co from 400 – 730ppm.

Site 4 was a NE trending magnetic high which is defined by a NE trending meta-ultramafic unit with PXRF readings of up to 2000ppm Ni (0.2%).  A thin section was prepared by Roger Townend and described as a Hornblende schist or Amphibolite (meta-Ultramafic/Mafic precursor).

Landowner access to locations of interest are in progress.

Brunswick Project a substantial addition to Kula Gold portfolio

Brunswick Ni-Cu-PGE Project added to Kula Gold’s portfolio.

“Kula Gold’s technical team have spent many months investigating potential Julimar Style exploration opportunities and following Chalice’s (ASX: CHN) recent spectacular discovery north of Perth, it has resulted in the Brunswick Project acquisition,” Kula Gold Chairman Mark Stowell after the release of the company’s latest Quarterly Activity Report.

“This is a substantial addition to Kula’s exploration portfolio.”

Kula Gold applied for an exploration license (ELA70/5599) which covers 240km2 which is located between the towns of Donnybrook and Brunswick Junction, approx. 150km south of Perth.  The licence is located in the highly prospective Western Gneiss Terrain which hosts Chalice Gold Mines, Julimar Ni-Cu-PGE Project to the North.

Studies of the open file magnetic data showed some subdued magnetic highs which Kula considered were worth investigating further to see if the subdued magnetic response was masking potential Ultramafics in the licence area.

The open file magnetics within the licence area were reprocessed to highlight the magnetic highs which will be field checked in the coming weeks to verify the actual rock types. Comparison of the open file and reprocessed magnetics are shown in the images below.

The licence area also contains an historical gold project east of Brunswick Junction known as Brunswick and is also prospective for Lithium bearing pegmatites.
