VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kalimantan Gold Corporation Limited ("KLG") announces that it has engaged Duncan Hackman to complete a maiden resource estimate for its flagship Beruang Kanan Main (BKM) Prospect.
The National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”)compliant resource report on the Beruang Kanan Main Prospect will incorporate data from KLG’s 2012-13 Phase 1 drilling program as well as historic drilling completed on the project during the 1998 - 2001 and the 2007 campaigns, totaling more than 19,000 meters. It is expected that the report will be completed in the third quarter of this year.
The BKM Prospect is located within the Beruang Kanan Project area in KLG’s Kalimantan Surya Kencana (KSK) Contract of Work (CoW), which covers an area of 620 square kilometers in Central Kalimantan, Borneo. Approximately $55 million has been incurred in exploration expenditures on the KSK CoW including 60,000 metres of drilling. About $33 million was spent during 2012 - 2013 that resulted in:
- over 30,000 metres of deep and delineation drilling;
- 28,000 samples analysed;
- 4,762 line kilometers of airborne geophysical surveys; and
- high resolution Lidar imaging over 24,363 ha.
Drilling at the BKM Prospect has confirmed a shallow dipping zone of copper mineralization over a strike length of up to 1,100m, is up to 450m wide and varies from 20m to 90m in thickness. Mineralization is dominated by covellite and chalcopyrite in sheared and altered volcaniclastic rock types and hydrothermal breccias. Selected significant drilled intercepts at the BKM Prospect include:
79.0m @ 0.88% Cu
60.1m @ 1.03% Cu
33.0m @ 2.28% Cu
20.4m @ 2.65% Cu
