Baru Gold begins exploration of new targets at Kingston

Published by
Global Mining Review,

Baru Gold Corp. has commenced field analysis of the 23 new exploration targets at the Kingston Target, part of the Sangihe Gold Project, identified in the structural study, with some promising initial results.

Initial field analysis began with mapping and sampling of artisanal workings beyond the western boundary of the Priority 1 Kingston Target, which has been named Kingston West and then progressed to the mapping and sampling of outcrops found within Kingston.

Assay results of the samples taken from the Kingston West Target returned an average grade of 1.84 g/t gold (Au) and 2.89 g/t for silver (Ag). Kingston West contains potential ore grade samples obtained from strongly oxidised quartz veins in tuffaceous andesite returning assays ranging from 0.83 – 5.57 g/t Au and 0.9 – 9.1g/t Ag.

Assay results from the samples taken from within the Kingston Target returned an average grade of 3.89 g/t Au and 3.79 g/t Ag. Kingston contains potential ore grade samples obtained from oxidised hydrothermal breccia with tuffaceous andesite and from strongly oxidised quartz veins in tuffaceous andesite returning assays ranging from 0.84 – 14.6 g/t Au and 1.7 – 13.1 g/t Ag.

The 14.6 g/t Au assay was obtained from a tuffaceous andesite containing a 0.73 m wide strongly oxidised sheeted vein stockwork containing veinlets of quartz ranging from 0.5 – 10 cm wide.

These initial sample results from the Kingston West and the Priority 1 Kingston Target areas have provided some ground truthing of the first of 23 new exploration targets defined by the structural study conducted by Murphy Geological Services.

Frank Rocca, Chief Geologist of Baru, commented: “These are exciting times for the exploration team as we seek to expand our knowledge of the contract of work beyond the known Binebase-Bawone deposits for additional ore resources. I look forward to reporting the results of further field analysis by the exploration team in due course.”
