KBL Mining has intersected near surface oxide and supergene copper–gold mineralization at its Missing Link prospect, which is part of the Mineral Hill project in central New South Wales.
Significant intercepts included 20 metres @ 5.5 grams/tonne gold and 1.3% copper from 58 metres, incorporating the supergene zone of 6 metres @ 16.4 grams/tonne gold and 3.7% copper from 70 metres.
The Missing Link prospect at Mineral Hill occurs in the footwall of the Jacks Hut deposit which historically produced almost 12,000 tonnes of copper and more than 80,000 ounces of gold.
The prospect consists of an upper oxide and supergene copper–gold mineralization including massive malachite, azurite, chalcocite and cuprite, with lesser primary sulphide veins beneath the deep weathering and oxidation profile.
These results at Missing Link highlight the possibility of expanding the combined Mineral Hill copper-gold-silver resource of 1.32 million tonnes ore @ 1.5% copper, 3.1 grams/tonne gold and 11 grams/tonne silver.
