The Brunswick Lithium Project (ELA70/5513 5545 5599 5660 5703) covers ~300km2 and is located between the towns of Donnybrook and Brunswick Junction, approx. 150km south of Perth, Western Australia.

The licence is located in the highly prospective Western Gneiss Terrain which hosts Chalice Gold Mines, Julimar Ni-Cu-PGE Project to the North, and the world’s largest Lithium Mine, Greenbushes, to the south east.

The Brunswick Project has a number of key Prospects:

  • Cammilleri and Jarvis Gold Prospects
  • Donnybrook Gold Mine (DBGM) Prospect)
  • White Sands Prospect
  • Hippy Lady Prospect

2024 Exploration advancements at Brunswick

⛏️ In May 2024, Kula Gold reports that exploration is progressing quickly at the historical Cammilleri/Donnybrook Mine and surrounds.

  • Substantial gold prospectivity identified at the historic Cammilleri Mine and surrounds
  • Cammilleri Mine recorded past production was extremely rich at 146g/t gold
  • 2005 historical RC holes DBRC06, DBRC07 and DBRC08 are in the process of being rebagged, relogged and reassayed with fire assay methodology
  • Visible gold panned onsite in some selective haematitic altered quartz rich zones

⛏️ In April 2024, Kula Gold 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.”

⛏️  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 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.

CAMILLERI & JARVIS GOLD PROSPECTS

⛏️ In April 2024, Kula Gold reported 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.

  • Focused gold exploration in early 2024 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 11.19 g/t gold where past production was extremely rich at 146 g/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.

Figure 3: Location of the Camilleri Prospect and the Camilleri and Blackwood Venture gold production.

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.

Below, Figure 4, shows haematitic altered quartz vein in a host sandstone.

⛏️  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
exploration.

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

*Visual estimates of mineral abundance should never be considered a proxy or substitute for laboratory analysis where concentrations or grade are the factor of principal economic interest. Visual estimates also potentially provide no information regarding impurities or deleterious physical properties relevant to valuations.

⛏️ In May 2022, Kula Gold announced soil sampling has identified a new area of interest, the Hippy Lady Prospect, which is prospective for both ‘Julimar-style’ Pt-Pd-Au±Cu mineralisation as well as Archean greenstone-hosted gold mineralisation.

Kula Gold’s Brunswick Project was staked on the concept the PGE system – discovered by Chalice Mining at Julimar – may extend this far south. The Hippy Lady PGE Prospect is an early potential validation of this concept.

⛏️ In July 2022 – Kula Gold announced the identification of the White Sands Prospect within the Brunswick Project in Western Australia.

Reconnaissance work identified quartz rich, volcanic tuff (see inset photo Figure 6) at the White Sands Prospect, which provides evidence of explosive volcanism within the region. The topographic cross section indicates that White Sands sits within a slight depression, surrounded by slight topographic highs where volcanic tuff has been observed. A subtle ellipsoidal ring (indicated in Figure 6), which appears coincident with the subtle topographic highs, can be seen in the magnetics surrounding the White Sands Prospect—it is possible that this feature represents a remnant tuff ring (refer Figure 6 inset image).

Figure 6: Location of White Sands, DBGM & Hippy Lady Prospects overlain on regional magnetics (TMI RTP over TMI-RTP-1VD shown). Magnetics sourced from Collie SI5006 Survey. Inset image showing Volcanic Tuff obtained from White Sands Prospect and a schematic cross section through an idealised tuff ring. Topographic cross section showing location where gold micro nuggets were panned.

Further work, including mapping the tuff extents and 3D inversion modelling of the publicly available magnetic data may provide evidence to substantiate this theory. Given that White Sands is situated only 6km northeast of DBGM, Kula geologists are investigating if the volcanism at White Sands may have been the geological driver for the Donnybrook epithermal system.

In areas previously quarried for silica sands, the surface has been mined back to expose saprolitic volcanic tuff, with channels and valleys cut through over time by creeks accommodating surface drainage (Figure 7A).

Figure 7. Photographs from the White Sands Prospect. Showing A: creek channels cut into the exposed saprolitic volcanic tuff (geopick for scale) which are typical at the White Sands Prospect. B: Gold panning hole dug in the small delta formed by the creek channels at the small dam (geopick for scale), and C: gold micro nuggets panned at White Sands Prospect.

Two gold micro nuggets (Figure 7C) were panned by a Kula geologist and local prospector from hole dug (Figure 7B) within the mouth of a small dam (Panning conducted in a small, seasonal dam located approx. 395625mE, 6284515mN) where the creeks formed a delta. The creeks that flow into the dam originate within White Sands Prospect which means the source of this gold is likely within the prospect area. Auger and/or aircore drilling is being planned to further test the potential for gold anomalism at White Sands.

Kula geologists will continue to work on building the geological observations from White Sands into the local and regional geological interpretation, to help determine if there is a geological link between DBGM and the White Sands volcanism and will use this new information to assist in targeting other areas of potential gold mineralisation for further reconnaissance work.

Brunswick Ni-Cu-PGE Project relative to the South West region of Western Australia.

⛏️ May 2021Brunswick Project area expanded to include historic Donnybrook Gold Mine.

⛏️ February 2021 – Kula Gold Limited released visual results from a rock sampling program reporting visible copper mineralisation.

The assay results from those rock samples showed Cu up to 0.35% as chalcopyrite, confirming the presence of copper-bearing sulphides in the project area.
Fieldwork by the company’s geological team has identified potential for three types of mineralisation and these are now the focus of exploration work:

1. Julimar Style Ni-Cu-PGE mineralisation.
2. Epithermal gold mineralisation– as evidenced by the historic Donnybrook Goldmines Ltd south of the licence with production of 1,100oz from 1,497 tons of ore between 1897 and 1904. (Ref: BHP Minerals Ltd DMIRS report of 1 Feb 1987 for exploration work 1985-87)
3. Archean Cu-Au mineralisation analogous to Newmont’s Boddington Copper-Gold Mine 75km NE which is one of the largest gold mines in the world, producing approximately 700k oz Au and 35kt Cu p.a.
Figure 1 - Rock samples from Brunswick Ni-Cu-PGE Project - February 2021.

⛏️ Previous Kula 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 re-processed magnetics are shown in the images below.
