Kingston has sold its Mt Cattlin lithium tenements to Galaxy Resources for $600,000, to be paid 50 per cent in cash and 50 per cent in Galaxy shares.
With Kingston’s focus turning towards the large-scale opportunity at Misima, funding further exploration activity at the WA lithium tenements was no longer a priority for the Company. The sale proceeds will be put towards the drilling underway at Misima.
Kingston is continuing to review strategic options for its Northern Territory (NT) lithium holdings, where discussions with interested parties are ongoing.
Kingston Managing Director, Andrew Corbett commented that last November’s acquisition of the Misima Gold Project signalled a redirection of management focus towards this opportunity for shareholders.
“A strategic review of the lithium portfolio was undertaken to determine how to extract maximum value from those assets,” said Mr Corbett. “We are now reaching the final stages of that process and are very pleased to have successfully completed the sale of our Mt Catlin lithium tenements. We look forward to providing further updates as the process concludes.”
Drilling at Misima is continuing to progress well. Kingston also expects to be reporting assay results from the Livingstone Gold Project drilling shortly.
