Kincora commences maiden drill program at the Fairholme Project to test the potential for ‘Cowal-style’ gold-base metal mineralization and to confirm and expand previous significant broad and high-grade intervals at the Gateway prospect
- The Gateway prospect at Fairholme is located 15km on trend from the Cowal mine “gold corridor” (endowment 13.7Moz gold) with analogous mineral tenure, alteration, geochemical zonation, structure and scale
- No drilling has taken place at Fairholme since Evolution Mining’s acquisition and resource growth at the Cowal mine with previous explorers having largely underestimated the gold-base metal corridor scale potential at the Cowal and Fairholme Projects
- Permits for up to 39-holes and 6,000m of drilling across various prospects at Fairholme • Drilling continues at Kincora’s brownfield Trundle project at the Mordialloc N-E prospect
Melbourne, Australia — July 23rd, 2021
Kincora Copper Ltd. (the Company, Kincora) (TSXV & ASX:KCC) is pleased to have commenced drilling activities at the Fairholme Project, located in the Macquarie Arc of the Lachlan Fold Belt (LFB) in NSW, Australia.
First phase diamond drilling at the Gateway prospect of five holes for approximately 1,700 metres will follow up multiple shallow to moderate depth, broad width and high-grade gold copper intervals from previous explorer drilling (including hole DR004: 123m @ 0.62g/t gold and 0.12% copper from 44m, with 4m @ 2.39g/t, 8m @ 1.07g/t and 5m @ 8.21g/t gold and 0.85% copper). The Gateway prospect hosts a north-south trending 2km long by 300m wide gold-copper-zinc corridor (and open).
A program of up to 6,000 metres of drilling including follow up diamond and air core programs at the Gateway prospect, and air core drilling of other under explored known mineralized prospects is planned.
John Holliday, Technical Committee chair, and Peter Leaman, Senior VP of Exploration, commented: “The Fairholme Project hosts a number of prospects where favourable historical gold and copper-gold intersections have not adequately been followed up. This is particularly significant in light of the considerable exploration success and resource growth at the neighbouring Cowal mine since the last phase of exploration at Fairholme. Initial diamond drilling has commenced at the Gateway prospect testing a 4oom strike within the wider prospective gold-base metals corridor following up previous broad and high-grade intervals.”
An updated corporate presentation, including further details on the Fairholme project, is available on our new website: www.kincoracopper.com

Kincora has commenced its maiden-drilling program at the Fairholme Project, located in the southern sector of the Junee-Narromine Belt of the Macquarie Arc. Fairholme is adjacent and along strike to Evolution Mining’s flagship Cowal Project. The Cowal mine hosts a cluster of epithermal, quartz-carbonate-base metal-gold mineralization deposits across a 7.5 x 2km north-south oriented “gold corridor”, located on the western edge of Lake Cowal, approximately 350km west of Sydney in Central West, NSW.
This first phase program of five holes for approximately 1,700 metres at the Fairholme Project comprises diamond drilling focused on the Gateway prospect with permits and plans for up to 6,000 metres.
Kincora’s drilling is following up multiple historical shallow to moderate depth broad intersections, with localized high grade gold intervals, from previous explorer drilling (e.g 123m @ 0.62g/t gold and 0.12% copper from 44m in hole DR004, including 4m @ 2.39 g/t gold and 0.05% copper from 58m; 8m @ 1.07 g/t gold and 0.05% Cu from 82m and 5m @ 8.21 g/t gold and 0.85% copper from 115m), within a north-south trending 2km x 300m wide gold-copper-zinc anomaly (>0.1g/t gold, >500ppm copper and >900ppm zinc).
Figure 2: Kincora’s Fairholme Project has multiple, large-scale mineralized system footprints and various hallmarks to the neighbouring world-class Cowal Project 3
The Gateway prospect is located 15km north of the Cowal “gold corridor” (current endowment 13.7Moz gold, including past production and current resources 3) along a major linking fault on the western side of the Booberoi shear zone with strong sericite alteration hosted by similar intrusive and volcanic rocks.
Mineral tenure, alteration, geochemical zonation, structure and scale provide significant encouragement for Gateway to possibly host a higher level porphyry associated system located 15km north and along trend from a similar series of intermediate-high sulfidation epithermal and carbonate base metal deposits in the gold corridor at Cowal.
Modern exploration in the Cowal region was commenced by Geopeko in 1980 following its discovery of porphyry mineralization in the Goonumbla district (Northparkes). Geopeko was seeking to test a similar geophysical profile under generally shallow post mineral cover. The exploration resulted in the Cowal epithermal gold deposit discovery (E42). In 1997, Newcrest discovered the nearby Marsden porphyry copper-gold deposit (now >0.5Mt copper and >1Moz gold 3). Newcrest also undertook the majority of exploration and drilling at Fairholme between 1990-2005, with total prior explorer drilling of 62,768m for 641 holes.
The last exploration prior to Kincora’s involvement at Fairholme was by Kaizen Discovery earning into the project (a High Powered Exploration group company). Despite Kaizen recognizing the potential for Cowal style gold deposits its primary focus was copper porphyry potential and undertook exploration to moderate-deep depths (including a Typhoon system
Induced Polarization survey, magnetics and drilling). Kaizen left the project in the last commodity cycle downturn (March 2016).
In mid 2015, Evolution Mining acquired the Cowal mine and has since grown the gold inventory from 3.4Moz to 9.7Moz (net of 1.7Moz mine depletion), with a target total endowment of 15Moz Au (noting total historical production of 4Moz gold) 1.
Previous explorers had largely underestimated the scale potential of the gold corridor at Cowal. No drilling has taken place at Fairholme since Evolution’s rapid resource growth with the immediate regions gold endowment now far outshining the deeper copper porphyry potential (the latter generally the main focus of previous explorers).
Kincora has designed a maiden first phase drill program on the Fairholme project to test the potential for shallow to moderate depth “Cowal-like” gold-base metal style mineralization by following up previous significant gold and copper intervals and their supporting pathfinder geochemical and alteration zonation patterns. Permits and plans are to hand for up to 39- holes for a total of 6,000m of drilling across various prospects.
Initial diamond drilling has commenced at the Gateway prospect (initial five diamond core holes for approximately 1,700m), within a 1km N-S zone of anomalous down-hole gold copper-zinc mineralization. The initial program will test a 4oom strike within the wider strong sericite alteration zone and in an interpreted favorable structural setting (intersection of NNW and NE faults) following up previous broad and high-grade intervals – refer to Figure 3.
Figure 3: Previous significant intervals at the Gateway prospect have not been systematically followed up until Kincora’s recently commenced drilling program Kincora’s maiden first phase drilling program is focused on zone of broad mineralization with high grade intervals
Following completion of the initial program a second phase follow up diamond drilling program at Gateway and shallow air-core drilling is planned. The latter is designed to expand and infill a pipeline of prospects testing single or multiple point gold, and gold and copper, anomalies at the Gateway, Driftway C, Anomaly 2, Manna Creek, Glencoe and Kennel prospects, situated across a 15 km N-S strike (see right hand side of Figure 2 for prospect locations).
Evolution has recently approved the A$380m development of an underground mine on the GRE46 deposit within the gold corridor at Cowal from to provide increased grade to supplement existing open pit operations (from E42) 2. This approval underpins the planned expansion to 350,000/oz pa production at Cowal (and extends mine life out beyond 17 years) 2. Drilling activities have also commenced at the E39 porphyry target, south of operations, and also within the gold corridor 2.
Outside of the Fairholme Project, a second drill rig for Kincora continues at the brownfield Trundle project at the Mordialloc North-East (N-E) prospect.
An updated detail corporate presentation, including further details on the Fairholme and Trundle Projects, and their hallmarks respectively to the neighboring Cowal and Northparkes mineral systems (latter cumulative total of over 20Moz gold and over 5Mt copper 3), is available on our new website: www.kincoracopper.com

Drilling, Assaying, Logging and QA/QC Procedures
Kincora Copper Limited, and its contractors, using the Company’s protocols as per industry best practise, carry out Sampling and QA/QC procedures.
All samples have been assayed at ALS Minerals Laboratories, delivered to Orange, NSW, Australia. In addition to internal checks by ALS, the Company incorporates a QA/QC sample protocol utilizing prepared standards and blanks for 5% of all assayed samples.
Diamond drilling is being undertaken by DrillIt Consulting Pty Ltd, from Parkes, under the supervision of our field geologists. Well-trained geologists logged all drill core to best industry standard and Kincora’s drill core sampling protocol consisted a collection of samples over the entire logged core.
Sample interval selection was based on geological controls or mineralization or metre intervals, and/or guidance from the Technical Committee provided subsequent to daily drill and logging reports. Sample intervals are cut by the Company and delivered by the Company direct to ALS.
All reported assay results are performed by ALS and widths reported are drill core lengths. There is insufficient drilling data to date to demonstrate continuity of mineralized domains and determine the relationship between mineralization widths and intercept lengths.
True widths are not known at this stage. Significant mineralised intervals are reported with dilution on the basis of: • Internal dilution is below the aforementioned respective cut off’s; and,
- Dilutions related with core loss as flagged by a “*”.
The following assay techniques have been adopted for drilling at the Fairholme project:
o Gold: Au-AA24 (Fire assay), reported.
o Multiple elements: ME-ICP61 (4 acid digestion with ICP-AES analysis for 33 elements) and ME-MS61 (4 acid digestion with ICP-AES & ICP-MS analysis for 48 elements).
o Assay results >10g/t gold and/or 1% copper are re-assayed.
