AuKing Mining (AKN) has commenced drilling at the Koongie Park copper-zinc project in northeast Western Australia.

The program will include around 7500 metres of drilling and will be completed over six to eight weeks.

Drilling is focusing on known areas of mineralisation at the Onedin and Sandiego deposits, which were identified from downhole geophysics surveys completed earlier this year.

A few weeks ago, the company reported “promising” initial results from the metallurgical testwork program at Onedin.

Although further detailed testwork is needed at the deposit, initial testwork has found the existence of secondary carbonate species in the mineralised zone.

AuKing Mining is expecting the drilling program to cost $1.5 million.

Results from the reverse circulation drilling program and ongoing assay results will be reported over the coming weeks.

AKN shares were up 4.76 per cent and trading at 11 cents per share at 12:24 pm AEST.
