Mick Billing, Executive Chairman, commented: “More very good XRF tungsten results along with exciting copper readings from the Samarkand deposit at Bonya.”
“The proposed Molyhil processing facility is designed to extract copper as well as tungsten and molybdenum so any primary copper at Bonya can be extracted at minimal additional cost.”
“We look forward to the full laboratory assays from this drill program, along with results from the trench sampling from Marrakech and Tashkent, all expected during May.”
The Board of Thor Mining Plc (“Thor”) (AIM, ASX: THR) is pleased to announce further positive interim results from drilling at the Bonya tungsten deposits, adjacent Molyhil, in the Northern Territory of Australia.
The Bonya project is held in joint venture with Arafura Resources Limited (ASX: “ARU”), with both parties contributing to the cost of the program in proportion to their project equity (THR 40% : ARU 60%).
Remaining interim results for Samarkand prospect are now available via portable X-ray fluorescence (“XRF”) determination. These results should be considered preliminary and subject to confirmation in subsequent laboratory assay. Laboratory assays results may vary from those obtained from XRF.
