Kilo Goldmines drills 23.45 m of 6.08 g/t Au at Adumbi
KILO GOLDMINES Ltd. has released the results of its completed drill program to test the down dip extension at the Adumbi prospect as well as an update on regional exploration activities on its Imbo licence (PE9691) falling within the Ngayu greenstone belt in the northeastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
• Significant RP zone intersections in each hole are:
• SADD0050: 434.73 to 447.42 m with 12.69 m at 5.51 g/t Au (including 5.49 m at 9.67 g/t Au);
• SADD0051: 393.43 to 402.72 m with 9.29 m at 4.09 g/t Au;
• SADD0052: 389.72 to 401.87 m with 12.15 m at 3.24 g/t Au;
• 419.15 to 428.75 m with 9.60 m at 5.04 g/t Au;
• SADD0053: 346.36 to 355.63 m with 9.27 m at 3.71 g/t Au;
• 391.72 to 415.17 m with 23.45 m at 6.08 g/t. Drilling — Adumbi prospect The RP zone was intersected in all four of the new drill holes (SADD0050, SADD0051, SADD0052 and SADD0053). Visible gold was locally observed in the RP zone in three drill holes. Less intensely altered rock occurs outside the RP zones and also locally carries significant gold grades.
The results show that the RP zone extends down dip to at least 375 m below surface (that is about 100 m deeper than defined by previous drilling) and that the width and grade of the mineralization are continuing with depth. The data also support
the interpretation that the higher-grade shoots within the RP zone dip steeply to the northwest at about 80 degrees. In order to further assess the economic potential of the RP zone, mineralogical studies to determine gold deportment are planned, followed by metallurgical test work.

A stream sediment (BLEG) sampling program is under way on five licence areas within the Ngayu belt, with the objective of identifying and prioritizing targets for follow-up by soil sampling. A planned program of a total of 315 sampling sites has been completed and sample preparation is under way prior to submission to an SGS laboratory in Ireland for analyses.
Exploration is also planned in the eastern part of the Imbo licence, where stream sediment and rock chip sampling indicate an extension of the Adumbi/Kitenge/Manzako mineralized trend over a strike of about seven km. The program will entail soil sampling at 40 m intervals along 160 m spaced lines, and will be accompanied by geological mapping, rock chip sampling, chan ne l sam pling and trenching/augering.
