Funds will go towards further exploration work at the company’s Misima Gold Project in Papua New Guinea and Livingstone Gold Project in Western Australia.

Kingston raised $938,670 in the 1-for-6 rights issue offering shares priced at 1.6 cents each, which adds to the $4.3 million raised in the prior share placement.

The company also recently completed an 11-hole drilling program to provide infill and validation data in an area east of the historical Ewatinona open pit at the Misima project.

Exploration work aims to deliver new near-surface mineralisation as these are likely to have the largest impact on overall project economics.
