Kincora Copper (KCC) has begun drilling at the Fairholme Project in the Lachlan Fold Belt, New South Wales (NSW).

Drilling will focus on the Gateway prospect which hosts a north-south trending gold-copper-zinc corridor two kilometres in length and 300 metres in width.

Phase one diamond drilling is underway with five holes, for 1700 metres, planned to follow up multiple high-grade copper-gold intervals from previous drilling.

This forms part of much larger 39-hole, for 6000 metres, diamond drilling program across various prospects.

Technical Committee Chair John Holliday and Senior Vice President of Exploration Peter Leaman are pleased to begin drilling at a project where previous drilling has yielded high-grade results.

“The Fairholme Project hosts a number of prospects where favourable historical gold and copper-gold intersections have not adequately been followed up,” Mr Holliday and Mr Leaman said.

“Initial diamond drilling has commenced at the Gateway prospect testing a 400-metre strike within the wider prospective gold-base metals corridor following up previous broad and high-grade intervals.”

Following completion of phase one drilling, Kincora will undertake phase two diamond and shallow aircore drilling.

This work is designed to expand and infill a pipeline of prospects as well as test multiple gold and copper anomalies.

Shares in Kincora were up 2.08 per cent and trading at 24.5 cents at 10:38 am AEST.
