Further Gold Intercepts Uncovered at Mt Monger
As previously announced, the Company intends to invest a significant portion of the recent fund raisings on systematic exploration of the prospective Mt Monger - Wombola Projects which are located in close proximity to Silver Lake Resources' (ASX:SLR) flagship Mt Monger mine (Daisy Complex).
As previously announced (17 July, 31 July and 11 August and 19 August 2020) the Company's geological team are in the process of assembling and interpreting all the historical drilling data on the Company's Mt Monger tenements.
The previous announcement was focused on the Canasta, Meld and Kess Prospects, with this announcement being focused on the Prophecy, Pitu and Avnei Prospects which are located in the western part of the Wombola tenements. The historical results from these prospects have only just been uncovered and as such have never been announced previously by Torian.
High Grade Drilling Results Uncovered at the Prophecy, Pitu and Avnei Prospects within the Mount Monger Project - Wombola Area
The continuing desktop review of Torian's Mount Monger Project - Wombola area has so far uncovered 7,356 historic drill holes with up to 50,000 metres of drilling within Torian's tenements.
High grade historical drilling results have been uncovered at the Prophecy, Pitu and Avnei Prospects within Torian's Wombola Tenement Area (Figure 7*). These prospects are located adjacent to the historical Wombola Dam and Wombola open-cut mining pits containing Silver Lakes Resources' (ASX:SLR) current mineral resource (SLR announcement entitled "Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves Statement" dated 27 August 2019).
Torian Executive Director Mr Peretz Schapiro said, "As previously announced we have had fresh eyes digging into the extensive datasets across our projects.
In particular, we have embarked on a property-wide systematic exploration effort at the Mt Monger - Wombola Project which enfolds much of Silver Lake Resources (ASX:SLR) flagship Mt Monger Mine. The area has produced more than 1.67Moz with more than 330,000 oz mined in the last 24 months alone (Table 1*).
We are encouraged by the fact that as we continue looking through and interpreting historical drill results, the number of high grade and significant gold intercepts uncovered increase at a healthy rate, indicating the potential for further discoveries. We anticipate that this may bode well for the continuation of the desktop works being undertaken on the Mt Monger project, which will ultimately lead to exploration drilling across those tenements.
Torian is a company with excellent projects, in the right locations, next to some major operating mines, of which management is committed to systematically explore. We look forward to updating the market on the results of our exciting exploration programs across our multiple prospective gold projects."
