The company, today on 5th April 2019, has updated regarding the status of its interest in the Misima Gold Project. Following the August 2018 completion of its earn-in to 70% of the project, Kingston has funded 100% of the exploration activity at Misima. Under the terms of the JV agreement, this will see Kingston’s interest in the project increase further.
