ROE HILLS DRILLING ADVANCES WITH GOLD DRILLING NOW UNDERWAY FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL COBALT PROGRAM 1000 750 Kairos Minerals

Aircore drilling completed to test ROE-1 cobalt prospect with assays awaited; RC drilling now underway targeting three high-priority gold prospects. 

Highlights: 

  • Completion of Aircore drilling, a total of 78 Holes for 2,845m
  • 59 holes for 1,851m at Roe 1 cobalt anomaly
  • 17 holes for 762m at regional gold targets West of Roe 1
  • 2 holes for 232m at the Terra Prospect (gold) 
  • Initial 1,851m Aircore drilling programme completed targeting high-grade cobalt mineralisation over a total strike length of ~7.5km at the Roe 1 prospect, where historical drilling returned intercepts including (Refer KAI ASX Announcement 14 March 2017: 
  • ROE172: 14m @ 0.39% Co from 20m (including 2m @ 1.16% Co from 22m) 
  • Assays pending from the cobalt drilling with initial results anticipated in early July. 
  • 5 RC holes for ~716m completed at Lady of the Lake and Ginger Kiss prospects (gold) 
  • RC drilling is ongoing with approximately 6 holes remaining in the current program including (KAI ASX announcement 6 April 2017): 

TERRA

Kairos Minerals Ltd (ASX: KAI; “Kairos” or “the Company”) is pleased to advise that its recently commenced drilling program at the 100%-owned Roe Hills Project, located 120km east-south-east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia (see Figure 1), is progressing well.

The initial phase of aircore drilling to evaluate an extensive zone of near-surface high-grade cobalt mineralisation has now been completed and samples have been dispatched for assaying.

 

Aircore drilling at the ROE 1 cobalt prospect

Potentially significant shallow cobalt mineralisation was identified earlier this year by Kairos at the ROE 1 prospect and at numerous other locations throughout the broader project area following a review of historical drilling data (Refer KAI ASX Announcement 14 March 2017).

An initial programme of 1,851m of Aircore drilling was completed as part of the current phase of drilling to evaluate the high-grade cobalt mineralisation at the ROE 1 prospect. Historical drilling at ROE 1 returned significant intercepts of cobalt mineralisation, including a best result of: 

  • ROE172: 14m @ 0.39% Co from 20m (including 2m @ 1.16% Co from 22m) 

All samples from the cobalt drilling have been collated and dispatched for assaying. Initial results are expected in early July.

The second (gold) phase of the drilling is now underway, and an initial program of ~1,000m of Aircore drilling has been completed at the newly identified Northern prospects (to evaluate newly identified structural gold targets) and at the northern end of the strike extensive (>2km’s) Terra prospect.

The programme has now transitioned to Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling to ensure adequate penetration at depth to further evaluate the Company’s three priority gold prospects, Terra, Lady of the Lake and Talc Lake.

A further ~1,500m of RC drilling is planned to test the strike and depth continuity of the excellent gold results generated by the Company’s maiden drilling programme completed earlier this year. Further information on the progress of this programme will be provided in the near future.
