- Described by the company as an exceptional intercept, it comes on the back of an ongoing 20,000m drilling campaign seeking to add more gold to the 873,500-ounce resource base at the project.
- Located some 100 kilometres south of Port Hedland, the wholly-owned Mt York tenure features three separate deposits that make up the existing resource base.
- The Iron Stirrup deposit in the central part of the tenure adds a further 86,000 ounces, with the Old Faithful deposit in the north hosting another 89,000 ounces of the precious yellow metal.
- The ongoing 20,000m reverse circulation drilling program is targeting extensions to the three deposits whilst also looking to boost resource confidence with infill holes.
- Kairos says the 32m intercept at 3.79 g/t gold from 124m has extended the mineralisation 90m down-dip between the historical Main Hill and Breccia Hill pits of the Mt York deposit.
- The intercept sits outside of the existing resource with the drilled area now seen as a priority target for further infill drilling by the company.
