Bygoo Tin ProjectSydney, Oct 31, 2017 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Thomson Resources Ltd (ASX:TMZ) provides the Company's Quarterly Activities Report.
- Exceptional tin intercepts continue in drilling at Bygoo North (up to 19m at 1.0% Sn)
- New shallow tin greisen zone at Bygoo North with 8m at 1.2% Sn
- Follow up drilling planned to commence shortly
- Further funding received
Further drilling at Bygoo during the quarter (8 holes for 1,098m) continued to intersect high grade tin of similar tenor to those previously recorded at both North and South prospects (see ASX release of 31 August, 2017). The standout intersections were -
- 19m at 1.0% Sn from 49m depth (BNRC40)
- 8m at 1.2% Sn from 16m depth (BNRC38)
- 6m at 0.8% Sn from 80m and 7m at 0.7% Sn from 95m (BNRC39)
- 7m at 1.3% Sn from 22m depth (BNRC35)
The program both confirmed existing interpretations (BNRC35, 39 and 40) and discovered a potential new shallow position (BNRC38). Drilling is planned in the next quarter to extend the known greisens and follow up the new potential.
