Killi's WA gold project

Killi Resources mobilising rigs for maiden drilling at West Tanami Project, WA

Killi Resources (ASX:KLI) reports that drill rigs are mobilising to the West Tanami Project in Western Australia for the company’s maiden drill program.

The project is situated within a district with multiple renowned gold deposits including the Callie Gold Mine (Newmont 13Moz Au), the Tanami Goldfields (3Moz Au), Buccaneer (0.5Moz Au), and the Coyote and Kookaburra mines (Black Cat Syndicate 1Moz Au).

A diamond drillhole planned will be the first diamond hole completed by the company on the project to test the theory of a ‘Callie’-style gold system on the West Tanami Project.

The aircore drilling will focus on the high-priority gold and rare earth element hydrothermal targets generated at the northern end of the tenement package from recent exploration work and historical data.

AC/RC drilling is designed to test both gold and rare earth exploration targets across the project in the north and in both instances will be the first deep holes across the project.

Both the diamond and the aircore (AC)/reverse circulation (RC) drill rigs are being readied to complete a circa 10,000m of AC/RC and circa 800-1000m of diamond core respectively.

Commenting on the drill program, Killi Chief Executive Officer Kathryn Cutler said: “We’ve been working hard over the last few months to get on the ground and start our drilling campaign for the year which represents a very exciting time for our shareholders.

“We’ve been working hard over the last few months to get on the ground”

Drill rigs are now mobilising to site, to complete the first RC and Diamond holes on the project.

While preparing, we have been able to complete surface mapping over the drill area and have identified quartz veins at surface which is exciting to see as we know gold is associated with quartz veins in this district.

We look forward to getting the rods spinning soon and unlocking the potential of the project.”

Killi Resources is a gold, copper, and rare earths explorer with four wholly owned assets in Australia, with a focus on the Tanami region of Western Australia.

The company is focused on underexplored provinces with the potential for a large-scale new discovery.
