Today Papua New Guinea miner K92 announced drill results and highlighted the following holes:

  • Drill Hole KMDD0166 records multiple intersections including 7.43 m at 24.52 g/t Au, 4 g/t Ag and 0.35% Cu (25.14 g/t AuEq) plus 3.97 m at 16.55 g/t Au, 5 g/t Ag and 0.34% Cu (17.1743 g/t AuEq)
  • Drill Hole KMDD0168 records multiple intersections including 4.05 m at 20.53 g/t Au, 7 g/t Ag and 0.29% Cu (21.09 g/t AuEq) plus 12.95 m at 20.30 g/t Au, 18 g/t Ag and 0.98% Cu (22.12 g/t AuEq)

John Lewins, K92 Chief Executive Officer and Director, said the results "reinforces the potential of the Judd Vein system."

"The latest results include the first significant Judd Vein intersection of 4.7 metres at 5.22 g/t AuEq from one of the surface rigs, over 500 metres to the North of the previous intersections reported by Highlands and Barrick, said Lewins.

"This reinforces the potential of the Judd Vein system, which is located approximately 200 metres to the East of the Kora system and known to have a surface strike length of over 2,000 metres. Other results yet again show the very high continuity of the K1 and K2 lodes with K92 drilling, confirming the vertical extent to be in excess of 1,100 metres with a known strike of over 1,000 metres. These latest results again show that the Kora system remains open both at depth and along strike."
