The Leonora Project is located approximately 240 km north of Kalgoorlie and 60 km northeast of Leonora. The project consists of two groups of contiguous tenements, the Chain Bore project to the north and the Benalla project to the south.
The Leonora Project is a relatively underexplored tenement package located proximal to significant gold occurrences and workings in highly prospective terrain that exhibits a favourable structural environment for mineralisation. Exploration results to date show strong widespread gold anomalism with prospectivity for further delineation of several potential deposits.
Kin Mining has the dominant land holding in the area surrounding the IRIS Metals Chain Bore and Benalla Projects, covering multiple gold bearing structures with a 1.23 million ounces Au inventory [Source: Kin Mining NL – ASX Announcement – 17 May 2021].
The Leonora Project contains multiple historic, high grade drill hole gold intercepts that remain open along strike and at depth.
There are a number of areas of historic workings for gold on the Chain Bore tenements as well as numerous proximal gold deposits on adjacent tenements. The IRIS Metals Chain Bore tenements sit to the east and south of Kin Mining’s Mertondale Project, with recently drilled mineralisation.
