Kalimantan Gold Corporation Limited: Drilling to Start at Jelai Gold Project; Drilling to Begin at KSK Copper Project End May/Early June

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 30, 2012) - Kalimantan Gold Corporation Limited (TSX VENTURE:KLG)(AIM:KLG) -


  • Drilling to commence at Jelai next week
  • Revised timetable agreed with Freeport
  • Mobilization of field crews to Beruang, KSK, under way
  • Drilling expected to commence at KSK end May/June

Kalimantan Gold Corporation Limited ("KLG") is pleased to announce that drilling at its Jelai gold project under joint venture with Tigers Realm Metals Pty Ltd ("Tigers") is expected to commence within the next week. The first drill hole is targeting high grade shoots at a depth below the epithermal gold - silver mineralization intersected by hole JCM-067 (9.50m @ 7.08 g/t Au).

Drill camp construction and road repair at the Jelai Project are near completion, and rig mobilization to site #1 is 70% complete. A water quality sampling survey has been completed, as part of the Company's environmental baseline monitoring program.

At the KSK copper project, which is under joint venture with a subsidiary of Freeport-McMoRan ("Freeport"), a revised timetable for the first year of the joint venture, reflecting the 10 month delay in obtaining the forestry permit, has been agreed upon. Safety training has been completed and mobilization of field crews to Beruang drill camps has commenced. Drilling is planned to commence at both of the high priority target sites, Beruang Kanan and Beruang Tengah, by the end of May or early June.
