- Torian Resources (TNR) extends gold mineralisation at the Tyrannus prospect within the Mt Stirling gold project in WA
- The gold footprint at the prospect now extends 1000 metres after receiving auger vacuum drilling results from arsenic-rich samples
- Torian plans to follow up on the results with a 39-hole drilling program with 20 to be drilled in the coming weeks to test 14 interpreted target zones
- TNR ends the day 3.57 per cent in the green to close at 2.9 cents
Torian Resources (TNR) has extended gold mineralisation at the Tyrannus prospect within the Mt Stirling gold project near Lenora in Western Australia.
The Tyrannus footprint has been extended to 1000 metres after Torian received auger vacuum (AV) arsenic-rich samples which returned gold intercepts from target zones about 400 metres to the northwest.
AV drilling is a low-impact and cost-effective method that provides clean and uncontaminated samples. These samples can be screened by pXRF for vectoring minerals and elements and contoured to map out elements and minerals of interest.
Single-metre AV drilling results include six metres at 1.72 grams of gold per tonne (g/t) from 10 metres including one metre at 5.13g/t gold from 14 metres and two metres at 2.37g/t gold from 19 metres including one metre at 3.35g/t gold from 20 metres.
Executive Director Peretz Schapiro commented on TNR’s exploration strategy.
“Our recently updated geological model is really exciting as it points to the potential presence of one large and interconnected gold system,” he said.
“Our exploration strategy ensures that the relatively more expensive RC holes are placed where we have already confirmed gold mineralisation. We are eager to end 2021 with a bang as we drill some of these exciting and highly promising targets.”
Torian Resources plans to follow up on the AV gold results with a 39-hole reverse circulation drill program. Of the 39 holes, 20 will be drilled in the coming weeks to test 14 interpreted target zones.
TNR ended the day 3.57 per cent in the green to close at 2.9 cents.
