Friday, May 25, 2017

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada -- Kenadyr Mining (Holdings) Corp. (TSX Venture: KEN, OTCQB: KNDYF, Frankfurt: KM0) announces that drilling at the South Zone of Kenadyr's fully owned Borubai License in the Kyrgyz Republic has intersected widespread gold mineralization including 40 meters at 6.17 grams per ton.

The South Zone is directly adjacent to Zijin Mining Group Co. Ltd.'s Taldy Bulak Levoberejnyi ("TBL") Mine deposit, currently in production.

Initial drilling was designed to intersect an area drilled by the Soviets between 1970 and 1990 that intersected significant gold mineralization. The current drill hole provides support for the validity of the historic Soviet results and indicates that widespread gold mineralization may exist on Kenadyr's license directly adjacent to (within 100 meters of) the TBL mine.

The South Zone is open in three directions and to depth and there are strong indications that it connects to the TBL deposit. Core recovery is greater than 95 percent and all intervals have been assayed using fire assay methods at an internationally accredited laboratory (ALS Global). ...

China is the world's top consumer, producer and importer of gold and Chinese companies have been targeting gold mine acquisitions.

Fosun, an acquisitive Chinese conglomerate, will buy 12,561,868 Polyus shares for $70.6025 per share from the family of Russian tycoon Suleiman Kerimov. ...
