READ: Kingston Resources raises nearly $1 million in rights issue to fund further gold exploration 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.
