Several elevated north trending zones of elevated gold values are illustrated by the contoured gold results on Figure 3. Anomalous gold values up to 80 ppb within the westernmost zone of elevated gold values overlies the BIF unit illustrated on the geological map in Figure 1. Loncor Resources Inc., delineated an elevated BLEG anomaly that strikes through the northwestern corner of the Gambi Licence (Loncor corporate presentation, September 2012).
Detailed in-fill soil sampling is planned to further evaluate the gold geochemical anomalies delineated on the Gambi Licence.
DHAHABU GOLD GEOCHEMISTRY
The Dhahabu Licence is located about 6 km northeast of the Yindi gold mine that operated during the colonial-era. Reconnaissance soil geochemical survey has been completed over the southern block of this licence and active artisanal workings were observed. Contoured gold values, illustrated in Figure 4, have delineated several areas with elevated gold values; anomalous gold values up to 158 ppb occur within each of these areas. A 500 m long gold-in-soil anomaly discovered at the southwest corner of the Dhahabu licence adjouns a high BLEG anomaly delineated by Loncor Resources Inc., (Loncor corporate presentation, September 2012).
Reconnaissance soil sampling over the un-sampled portion of the licence is planned prior to follow-up sampling on the delineated anomalies.
MPAKA GOLD GEOCHEMISTRY
Reconaissance soil geochemical survey was carried out north of the Ngayu River over the western portion of the Mpaka Licence. Contoured gold values illustrated in Figure 5 indicate that several areas of elevated gold values were delineated. Anomalous gold values up to 184 ppb occur within some of the areas delineated with elevated gold values.
The eastern half of the licence is indicated on the 1980, 1:200,000 Bafwasende geological map to be underlain by a large granitic intrusive, in contact with Upper Kibalian lithologies of the Archaean Ngayu greenstone belt to the west. Historical reports reviewed by the company are silent on gold production from Mpaka Licence. Given that gold mineralization occurs in close proximity to granitic intrusions, reconnaissance soil geochemical surveying over the margins of the granitic intrusive is planned prior to follow-up on the delineated anomalies.
Alex van Hoeken, President and CEO of Kilo, today stated:
"The delineation of gold geochemical anomalies on all licences covered with reconnaissance scale geochemical soil surveys is encouraging and further confirms the exploration methodology is an effective first phase in a systematic approach. Gold values up to 0.48 g/t for soil geochemistry samples on the Borada Licence overlying BIF is particularly encouraging given the area ties onto known BLEG anomalies and lacks evidence of previous exploitation. The on-going reconnaissance soil geochemical surveys followed by in-fill detailed sampling are expected to result in the delineation of targets that will require evaluation by drilling."
NAGAZI GOLD GEOCHEMISTRY
Approximately 4000 in-fill soil samples at a spacing of 80 m x 40 m have been collected since late April 2013 over the northern portion of the Ngazi Licence to better define the gold anomalies delineated by 2310 reconnaissance scale soil samples (see press release dated August 13, 2012).
SOIL SAMPLING PROCEDURES
Sample collection: The soil samples were collected at a depth of approximately 30 cm in flat topographic areas and from an approximate 60 cm depth on hill slopes. The reconnaissance scale sampling was carried out at 100 m intervals on lines 400 m apart. In-fill follow up sampling was carried out at 40 m intervals on lines 80 m apart. Sample sites were located by GPS and coordinates were recorded for each site. Approximately 2 kg of material present at the depth sampled was collected and placed into a plastic bag together with a pre-numbered sample tag and the bag was stapled shut.
