VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Kalimantan Gold Corporation (“KLG”) is pleased to announce new gold-silver results returned from recent drilling by Tigers Realm Metals (“TRM”) as part of their first stage exploration activities on the Jelai Epithermal Project. The northwest quadrant of the Jelai IUP license hosts at least three discrete, sub-parallel, north-south trending epithermal structures, the Mewet, Sembawang and Nyabi vein systems.
A program of 11 holes (all drilled towards the East), for 3,129.4m of drilling, has been completed. Drill holes targeted high grade shoots at deeper levels of the epithermal gold - silver vein systems at north Mewet, north Sembawang, south Sembawang and along the untested central and southern extensions of the Nyabi vein system.
A total of eight TRM holes have tested 400 meters of strike length along the North Mewet vein system, to depths of up to 300 meters. All assays have been received assays have been received for the Mewet (MEW series) drill holes.
Two holes have been drilled along the Sembawang vein system to date. A single hole drilled at the northern end of the Sembawang vein, near the summit of Bukit Cinta, and the second hole tested the southern limits of the mapped portion of the vein. Assays have been received for north Sembawang DDH (SEM6700-01), and pending for south Sembawang DDH (SEM5700-01).
The first hole targeted a strong gold in soil geochemical anomaly defined at the poorly exposed southern strike extension of the Nyabi vein. A second hole is currently underway, targeting the central portions of the Nyabi structure where three interpreted veins (i.e. linear ridges) intersect. Assay results from the first hole are pending.
Results from TRM drilling are listed in Table 1, and are now being analyzed by KLG’s consulting geologist and conclusions will be released as soon as they are available.
Table 1. Significant assays for TRM drill holes
|Hole||Dip||From (m)||To (m)||Interval (m)||Au(g/t)||Ag(g/t)|
|MEW6300-01||-67||No Significant Assays|
|MEW6600-03||-70||No Significant Assays|
|MEW6700-01||-65||No Significant Assays|
|SEM6700-01||-45||No Significant Assays|
|NYA6225-01||Drilling in Progress|
Drill intercept lengths only are reported in the tabulations; it is estimated that true width will be less than the reported drill intercept length.

The current Corporate & Social Responsibility (“CSR”) livelihood activities of KLG include three main activities – vegetable gardens, fish ponds and rubber seedling nurseries – for which interest groups have been established. These are based in the villages of Bunau and Terindak. Each village has made an annual development plan and elected a management group to implement the plan.
The vegetable group has been harvesting produce from the plot and selling into the local market. The success of this is attracting others to join in the activity. The ponds have been stocked with catfish fingerlings that are growing well and being managed by each village. The two rubber groups in each village have established a nursery plot and planted rootstock for grafting. Experts from this village have begun providing training to the rubber groups.
In Mewet village, close to the exploration camp, the CSR program is also supporting the provision of mother and child care by the subdistrict health clinic. Malnutrition and tuberculosis are serious concerns and this is the first time they have had access to professional health care.
All data, as disclosed in this press release, has been reviewed and verified by the Company's Qualified Person for the Jelai Project, Dr. Peter Pollard, who acts as a technical consultant to KLG and is a consulting economic geologist with over 20 years experience.
