The directors of Thor Mining Plc have provided an exploration update on field activities at the company's 100% owned Ragged Range Project, located in the Eastern Pilbara, Western Australia.
- Lithium: the Thor team is currently on the ground mapping and sampling several lithium targets, including potential lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatites which have been identified within the prospective 10 km radius of the Split Rock Supersuite at Thor's Ragged Range Project.
- Nickel: a high-powered fixed loop electromagnetics (FLEM) ground geophysics survey is scheduled for mid-April 2022 over the nickel gossan located in the western portion of tenure. The survey is designed to detect any conductive anomalies at depth that may indicate the presence of nickel sulphide mineralisation. The survey is anticipated to take one week to complete.
- Gold: final preparations are in place to commence the second phase of RC drilling at the Sterling Gold Prospect.
Nicole Galloway Warland, Managing Director of Thor Mining, commented: “Thor is pleased to have the team back on the ground for the 2022 field season, at our 100% owned Ragged Range Project. The team will be focused on priority lithium, nickel and gold targets across the tenure. The current field program concentrates on mapping and sampling of several lithium-caesium-tantalum pegmatite targets associated with the highly prospective Split Rock Supersuite. Whilst at our previously untested nickel gossan which extends over 1 km, the scheduled electromagnetic survey should identify the most prospective areas at depth to conduct initial drill testing. The testing of these new targets in conjunction with the continuation of drilling of further gold exploration targets at the Sterling Prospect, has the potential for significant exploration discoveries. We look forward to updating the market as soon as results are available.”
