Kingwest Resources (KWR) has intersected gold grading up to 237.5g/t from its Menzies Gold Project in Western Australia.
Since drilling began in March, a total of 14 reverse circulation (RC) pre-collars and 10 RC drill holes have been completed for 3402 metres.
These holes focused on the First Hit, Lady Shenton and Yunndaga systems. These systems were chosen because they lie within the Menzies Mineralised Corridor and are proven to host high-grade gold deposits.
Historical production from these areas include 164,000 ounces at 32.5g/t gold, 191,000 ounces at 32.3 g/t gold, and 270,000 ounces at 16g/t gold, respectively.
At First Hit, a total of four reverse circulation holes were drilled and they returned bonanza grades of three metres at 158.4g/t gold including two metres at 237.5g/t gold from 180 metres.
These results prove First Hit has the potential for further depth extensions and more high-grade results.
These results will now be closely analysed to determine the most appropriate program for follow-up drilling.
Results received from Lady Shenton were significantly above expectations as holes drilled here cut through the Stirling Lode.
Significant results from this program include five metres at 13.1g/t gold from 32 metres including one metre at 58.6g/t gold from 32 metres, and one metre at 9.4g/t gold from 44 metres.
Unfortunately, drilling at Yunndaga yielded no significant mineralisation.
“These results are very pleasing and ratify our belief that the high-grade ore zones continue at First Hit and Lady Shenton and throughout the Menzies Gold Project,” CEO Ed Turner commented.
“We were expecting something exceptional if we drilled enough holes in the right areas and three metres at 158.4g/t gold is hard to beat, and it is within one of the high-grade exploration targets that we announced only last month,” he said.
Diamond drilling has now begun to test for high-grade targets and results will be announced once samples have been received and analysed.
Kingwest has ended the day up a strong 26.9 per cent with shares trading for 16.5 cents each in a $15.84 million market cap.
