Nicole Galloway Warland, Managing Director of Thor Mining, commented:

“The September quarter has been a busy time, with Thor increasing its on-ground exploration activities to advance projects to drilling status.

At our Ragged Range Project, after a series of successful and systematic stream and soil programs, we are excited to have commenced our maiden RC drilling program at the Sterling Prospect.  Drilling is targeting eight robust geochemical anomalies in the central portion of the Sterling Prospect, within the highly prospective 13km structurally controlled gold anomalous corridor defined by Thor, associated with the regional mafic-ultramafic thrust faulted contact within the Kelly Greenstone Belt.

During the quarter we completed our first phase of diamond drilling at the Alford East Copper-Gold Project, with results reporting significant intercepts and defining a new structurally controlled, broad zone of high copper and gold grades, from near surface.  With the copper price at an all-time high makes this a very significant project in the Thor portfolio. The confirmed uplift in copper and gold grades along the controlling NNE structure continues to excite and exceed our expectations. For instance, drillhole 21AED005 reported the widest Cu intercept >1% Cu at Alford East (72.7m @ 1% Cu and 0.19g/t Au for only 6.3m). We look forward to testing this structure in areas open along strike, to the north and south.

Initial pump testing was also completed at Alford East in September, with preliminary results showing favourable water parameters and permeability for potential In Situ Recovery of copper and gold.  This is positive news as we advance the project towards an In-Situ Recovery (ISR) assessment, and the development of a low cost, low carbon emission alternative to conventional open cut or underground mining.   

We are very pleased to enter into a Sale Option Agreement with Power Metals for the 100% sale of the Pilot Mountain Project in Nevada, USA.  This strategic divestment of this non-core asset is in line with our focus on the advancement of our copper and gold projects.

We look forward to providing further updates on our continued progress.”

RAGGED RANGE GOLD PROJECT

The Ragged Range Project, located in the prospective Eastern Pilbara Craton, Western Australia (Figure 1) is 100% owned by Thor Mining – (E46/1190, E46/1262, E46/1355, E46/1340) with the recent additional tenure surrounding the gold anomalous and copper-gold zones, E46/1393 (application).

Since acquisition, Thor has conducted several programs of stream sediment and soil sampling to delineate drill targets. Thor has also flown an airborne magnetics survey over the tenement area to better define the structural features of the area.

Details of the projects may be found on the Thor website via this link: www.thormining.com/projects/ragged-range-pilbara-project .

Sterling Prospect – Soil results

Thor completed a further 369 infill soil samples in July over two portions of the Sterling Prospect, Sterling Central and Sterling South, as a follow-up to a reconnaissance soil program (THR:ASX announcement 23/06/21) and high-grade gold stream results (up to 2.2g/t Au), reported from sampling in 2019 and 2020 (THR:ASX announcement 1/12/2020).

https://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/pdf/asx-announcements/20210623-ragged-range-exploration-update.pdf  

The infill soil samples were collected at a 25m x 100m spacing over priority areas with anomalous gold results from the initial reconnaissance program.  At each site and consistent with the previous soil program, two samples were collected at each site, and both sieved to -2mm. The first sample of approximately 2kg was crushed at the Intertek lab in Perth and a sub-split assayed for Au by an aqua regia method AR25 and multi-element assaying by four-acid digest with MS25 finish.  The second sample 1kg Bulk Leach Extractable Gold (BLEG) sample was assayed by method CN1000 for gold only.

The infill soil results returned BLEG soil values up to 348ppb and 153ppb Au (21RRS777 and 21RRS437 respectively), with over 61 samples reporting significantly above a background of approximately 5ppb Au (Figure 2). Five stream sediment samples were collected using a <2mm sieve and panned to check gold anomalism. Samples 21RRST016 (74.1g/t Au) and 21RRST017 (0.35g/t Au) were panned approximately 100m down slope, in a small creek from soil sample 21RRS777 (348ppb Au). Gold was observed in both samples. Two creeks (21RRST018 and 21RRST019) were also sampled, draining the major contact to the south of the Sterling South soil grid. No gold was observed in the pan. One pan sample was also collected from a high BLEG (111ppb Au) sample from previous stream sediment sampling. One speck of gold was panned with the sample 21RRST020 reporting 3.58g/t Au.

Only thin residual soils overlie the Euro Basalt extending westward over the ultramafic Dalton Suite, faulted contact and the tenor and consistency of the BLEG results is considered outstanding.

These latest soil results, combined with the initial soil program earlier in the year, have now identified several continuous anomalous gold zones, each warranting drill testing, with some zones extending over 1km long at both the Sterling Central and Sterling South areas.  Soil anomalies remain open to the north and south, with follow up infill sampling planned to investigate these areas further.

The gold anomalism generally strikes slightly oblique to the Euro Basalt and Dalton Suite contact suggesting that gold mineralisation is controlled by minor faults and structures, associated with this major structure.

Nickel Gossan

Geological mapping of the nickel gossan which was previously sampled in mid-2020 (THR: ASX announcement 31 July 2020) confirmed that the gossan extends over 1km and sits at the base of the Dalton Suite (ultramafic units), adjacent to the older Felsic Volcanics of the Wyman Formation. This position of the gossan at the base of the ultramafic contact is significant from a geological nickel-sulphide model perspective.

Prior to drill testing beneath the gossan, a ground electromagnetic (EM) survey will be undertaken.  Thor is currently finalising this program.

E46/1393- Kelly/Ryan Copper- Gold Prospects

A new tenement application E46/1393 in the northeast covers a recently surrendered mining lease M46/171 (Figure 1).  This area covers several historic copper-gold and copper-base metals mines and prospects.  The copper mineralisation is associated with the dacite Boolina porphyry, close to the margin of the Corunna batholith, and intrudes the Kelly greenstone belt.

At Kelly’s Mine, historic production between 1955-1970, although small, was of very high-grade – 610t of ore averaging 19.47% Cu.1

Exploration to date has been sporadic, with no systematic approach over the area.  Thor will be targeting areas of mineralisation, zones of alteration, shears/faults and zones of brecciation.

Next Steps

A 3,000m RC drilling program commenced in October to test eight priority gold in soil and stream anomalous targets (THR:ASX 12 October 2021).

Thor Mining was awarded A$160,000 from the Western Australia Government under the EIS Co-funded grants program to drill test gold anomalies at the Sterling Prospect.

Concurrent with the drilling program, infill soil sampling covering anomalous zones open at Sterling Central and Sterling South will be completed. In addition, regional gold targets, including to the northwest and southeast of Sterling prospect, the granitoid contact in the north, plus the copper-gold area in the northeast (Kelly/Ryan Prospects), will be followed up with reconnaissance stream and soil geochemistry programs.  Government and Company geophysics are being used in conjunction with the geochemical data, to assist with structural and lithological targeting.

COPPER PROJECTS

Thor holds direct and indirect interests in over 400,000 tonnes of Inferred copper resources in South Australia, via its 80% farm-in interest in the Alford East copper project and its 30% interest in EnviroCopper Ltd.

Each of these projects are considered by Thor directors to have significant growth potential, and each are being advanced towards development via low cost, environmentally friendly In Situ Recovery (ISR) techniques.

ALFORD EAST COPPER-GOLD PROJECT – SA

The Alford East Copper-Gold Project is located on EL6529, where Thor is earning up to 80% interest from unlisted Australian explorer Spencer Metals Pty Ltd, covering portions of EL6255 and EL6529 (THR:ASX 23 November 2020).

The Project covers the northern extension of the Alford Copper Belt, located on the Yorke Peninsula, SA.  The Alford Copper Belt is a semi coherent zone of copper-gold oxide mineralisation,   within a structurally controlled, north-south corridor consisting of deeply kaolinised and oxidised troughs within metamorphic units on the edge of the Tickera Granite, Gawler Craton, SA.

Utilising historic drill hole information, Thor completed an inferred Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE), with summaries in Table B (THR:ASX 27 January 2021), consisting of:

  • 125.6Mt @ 0.14% Cu containing 177,000t of contained copper
  • 71, 500oz of contained gold

Diamond Drilling Program

Nine diamond drillholes totalling 878m were completed as part of Thor’s initial diamond drilling program, with assays received for three drillholes – 21AED001, 21AED002 and 21AED005.  This initial program for Thor, focussed only on the northern portion of the Alford East copper-gold deposit around the AE-5 mineralised domain, with drilling targeting areas open at depth and along strike, whilst validating interpreted controlling mineralised structures.  AE-5 domain is one of eight mineralised domains.

Drillhole assay results with significant copper and gold intercepts include (THR:ASX Announcement 31 August 2021):

· 21AED001 :   108.2m @ 0.17% Cu and 0.1g/t Au from 6.2m, including

25.3m @ 0.11% Cu from 6.2m

32.9m @ 0.4% Cu and 0.31g/t Au from 81.5 m, and

5m @ 0.5% Cu and 1.02g/t Au from 102m

§ 21AED002 :  59.9m @ 0.31% Cu from 21.9m

§ 21AED005   72.7m @ 1.0% Cu and 0.19g/t Au from 6.3m, including

18.2m @ 2.0% Cu and 0.34g/t Au from 15.8m

Note for In Situ Recovery, Thor is targeting broad copper-gold oxide intervals above the MRE cut-off grade of 0.05% copper. 

For ISR purposes, drilling was limited to the   deeply weathered lithological profile, testing the extent of the oxide zone and the depth boundary of the Top of Fresh Rock (TOFR).  The copper-gold oxide mineralisation is hosted within deeply kaolinised (clay) and metasomatic altered units on the contact between the Olympic Domain Wallaroo Group metasediments and the Hiltaba Suite, Tickera Granite. Copper oxide mineralogy is dominated by malachite and chalcocite.

Drillholes 21AED001, 21AED003 and 21AED005 (Section A-A’ 6,256,360mN), were drilled through the central portion of AE-5 MRE Domain, designed to validate the geological model and test areas, open at depth.  The high-grade copper and gold intercepts in both 21AED001 and 21AED005 are, significantly above the MRE cut-off and open up the potential for oxide mineralisation at depth. Drillhole 21AED005 highlights the significant grade uplift along the interpreted north-south controlling structure. Copper (predominately malachite) and gold mineralisation in 21AED005 is hosted within residual friable clays.

Assay results from 21AED001, 21AED002 and 21AED005 confirm significant copper and gold grade uplift along the north-south trending controlling structure, validating the new geological model and structural controls on mineralisation. Validation and confidence in the geological model are critically important for future drill targeting, as well as resource modelling.

The continuation of the visual copper mineralisation 100m north of the MRE AE-5 domain envelope, (21AED002, 21AED006 and 21AED007), confirms oxide copper mineralisation remains opens along strike and potentially links AE-5 to the AE-8 domain.

Remaining drill core is currently being prepared for sample submission to the laboratory, with all assay results anticipated in the December quarter.

Pump testing for initial hydrogeological baseline work forming part of the ‘proof of concept’ for ISR, including water characteristics, porosity, and permeability testing was completed in September, with results confirming positive water parameters and permeability for potential ISR at Alford East Project (THR:ASX 18 October 2021). Preliminary hydrometallurgical studies by Mining and Process Solutions (MPS) on potential lixiviants for copper and gold recovery is in progress. This work is co-funded by the SA Government Accelerated Discovery Grant (ADI) of A$300,000.

In conjunction with the technical assessment, Thor will continue ongoing stakeholder and community engagement, and regulatory activities.

Based on the nature of the oxide mineralisation, the deposit is considered amenable to In Situ Recovery (ISR) techniques.  For further information on ISR please refer to Thor’s website via this link for an informative video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG_1ZGD0WIw

KAPUNDA and ALFORD WEST COPPER PROJECTS – SA

Thor holds a 30% equity interest in private Australian company, EnviroCopper Limited (“ECL”).  In turn, ECL has entered into an agreement to earn, in two stages, up to 75% of the rights over metals which may be recovered via In-Situ Recovery (“ISR”) contained in the Kapunda deposit from Australian listed company, Terramin Australia Limited (“Terramin” ASX: “TZN”), and rights to 75% of the Alford West copper project comprising the northern portion of exploration licence EL5984 held by Andromeda Metals Limited (ASX:ADN).

Information about EnviroCopper Limited and its projects can be found on the EnviroCopper website:

www.envirocopper.com.au  

KAPUNDA

ECL, in collaboration with MinEx CRC, completed an innovative Coiled Tube (“CT”) drilling program at Kapunda during the quarter. MinEx CRC is the world’s largest mineral exploration collaboration, bringing together the mining industry (including drilling companies), government and research organisations. The drilling program was designed to trial technological advancements using a safer, environmentally friendly mining technology with a low footprint.

Drilling targeted copper-gold mineralisation approximately 30m from the planned in-situ recovery (“ISR”) push/pull test site to the south of Kapunda township. 

URANIUM AND VANADIUM PROJECTS

Thor holds a 100% interest in two US companies with mineral claims in Colorado and Utah, USA.  The claims host uranium and vanadium mineralisation in an area known as the Uravan Mineral Belt, which has a history of high-grade uranium and vanadium production.

Within probable economic transport distance is a processing plant (Energy Fuels White Mesa Mill), which may be a low hurdle processing option for any production from these projects.

Details of the projects may be found on the Thor website via this link: www.thormining.com/projects/us-uranium-and-vanadium .

Thor is currently working through the Colorado state and County permitting processes, with Federal (BLM), environmental including Raptor surveys completed. In conjunction, a geological evaluation of the Utah claims is underway.

TUNGSTEN PROJECTS

MOLYHIL TUNGSTEN / MOLYBDENUM PROJECT – NT (100% Thor)

The Molyhil tungsten-molybdenum-copper deposit is 100% owned by Thor Mining and is located 220 kilometres north-east of Alice Springs (320 km by road) within the prospective polymetallic province of the Proterozoic Eastern Arunta Block in the Northern Territory.

A copy of the Tenement and Prospect Location Plan may be viewed via the following link:

https://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/Maps/12-002-1b-molyhil-location.jpg

The deposit consists of two adjacent outcropping iron-rich skarn bodies, the northern ‘Yacht Club’ lode and the ‘Southern’ lode. Both lodes are marginal to a granite intrusion; both lodes contain scheelite (CaWO4) and molybdenite (MoS2) mineralisation. Both the outlines of the lodes and the banding within the lodes strike approximately north and dip steeply to the east.

A full background on the project is available on the Thor Mining website www.thormining.com/projects .

Following the reporting of the Mineral Resource Estimate (ASX:THR 8 April 2021), 3D geological modelling identified two prominent structures – the Yacht Club fault and South Offset fault.  Based on the geological timing of these faults they may have a significant impact on the location of tungsten and molybdenum mineralization, hence creating targets for potential extensions or offsets of the ore body. 

Modelling of the 3D magnetics and the position of the South Offset Fault, strongly implies an offset of the magnetic material (magnetite skarn), host to the tungsten-molybdenum mineralisation. This potential off set of mineralisation. Although there are a few drillholes to the south of the South Offset Fault, these have not intersected the magnetic body making it an untested target.  

An image showing the magnetic drill target may be viewed via the following link:

http://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/maps/21_molyhil_magnetic-target.jpg

Thor Mining was awarded A$110,000 from the Northern Territory Government as part of the Resourcing the Territory, Geophysics and Drilling Collaborations (GDC) program for this drilling program. 

NEXT STEPS

To enhance the Project economics for Molyhil the following activities were undertaken:

1.  Ore sorting review :

X-Ray (XRT) ore sorting was completed using two size fractions, initially set at -55 mm to +25 mm, and -25 mm to +10 mm; XRT technology has significantly improved since the Thor Feasibility Study into Molyhil, allowing improved sorting precision and also allowing the sorting of finer particles, warranting further testing.  Any improvement in ore sorting outcomes will reduce both capital and operating costs of the proposed Molyhil operation.

2.  Depth Potential – MRE Classification:

The Measured, Indicated and inferred Mineral Resource Estimate is currently based only on mineralisation above the 200m RL; drilling at depth in conjunction with pit design and optimisation has the potential to grow the mineral resource estimate at depth.

Based on a Feasibility Study completed in 2018, the mineralised areas below the 200m RL (about 140m below surface) appear economic for mechanised underground mining techniques however requires further geotechnical work to determine economic grade cut-offs below this level.

https://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/pdf/asx-announcements/20172018/20180115-asx-mh-ore-reserve-clarification.pdf  

3.  Drilling Targets:

Drill test the modelled magnetic anomaly below the South Offset Fault to test for mineralised magnetite skarn.

4.  Revise Feasibility Study based on the outcomes of the activities listed above.

Since the publication of the Feasibility Study in 2018 the price of tungsten has recovered and risen from US$290/mtu to US$313.5/mtu; whilst molybdenum has risen from US$11.85/lb to US$19.85/lb (Sourced from Argus Media Group ). This will significantly impact the economics of the Molyhil Project. (ASX: THR 23 August 2018).

https://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/maps/graph-w–mo-sept21.jpg

The Company is in discussion with several Australian Commonwealth government agencies, each of which are mandated to assist companies with projects to develop and produce critical minerals, which includes tungsten.  These agencies include Export Finance Australia, Defence Export Facility, Critical Minerals Facilitation Office and the North Australian Infrastructure Facility. Further announcements will be made as appropriate.

Bonya (Tungsten, Copper) and Jervois Vanadium Projects (40% Thor)

The Bonya tungsten, copper and vanadium deposits are located approximately 30km to the north-east of Molyhil.  Thor, in joint venture with Arafura, holds a 40% equity interest in the resources.

A full background on the project is available on the Thor Mining website: www.thormining.com/projects .

PILOT MOUNTAIN TUNGSTEN PROJECT – NEVADA USA (100% Thor)

Thor’s Pilot Mountain Project, acquired in 2014, is located approximately 200 kilometres south of the city of Reno and 20 kilometres east of the town of Mina, located on US Highway 95.

The Pilot Mountain Project is comprised of four tungsten deposits: Desert Scheelite, Gunmetal, Garnet and Good Hope.  All of these deposits are in close proximity (~three kilometres) to each other and have been subjected to small-scale mining activities at various times during the 20th century.

A full background on the project is available on the Thor Mining website: www.thormining.com/projects .

In September, Thor advised that they have entered into an Option Agreement with Power Metal Resources Plc (“Power Metal”) (AIM: POW) to divest the Pilot Mountain Tungsten Project (“Pilot Mountain”) in Nevada, USA for an agreed value of US$1.8 million (THR:ASX 1 September 2021).

Under the terms of the Option Agreement Golden Metal may acquire a 100% interest in Pilot Mountain, from Thor Mining plc (“Thor Mining” or the “Vendor”).

Option Period

Under this Agreement, Golden Metal will have a 60 calendar day Option Period (ending 5pm GMT on Friday 29.10.21, the “Option Expiry Date”) during which it may conduct due diligence with regard to Pilot Mountain.

Power Metal will pay US$25,000 in cash to Thor Mining and issue to Thor Mining 500,000 new Power Metal Ordinary shares of 0.1p (“Ordinary Shares”) at an issue price of 2.5p (£12,500 of Ordinary Shares). 

Option Exercise

Subject to written confirmation of the Option Exercise by the Option Expiry Date, Golden Metal may acquire Pilot Mountain on the following terms:

Power Metal will pay US$115,000 in cash to Thor Mining and US$1,650,000 payable through issue to the THR of 48,118,920 Ordinary Shares” at an issue price of 2.5 pence per share (“Initial Consideration Shares”).

Thor Mining will hold the Initial Consideration Shares in full for a minimum of 6 months after the Option Exercise date, and thereafter the Initial Consideration Shares will become freely tradable in 25% instalments (25% tradable 6 months after Option Exercise date, 50% after 9 months, 75% after 12 months and 100% after 15 months.)  This trading restriction period may be varied by both parties with written agreement.

In addition, Power Metal will issue to Thor Mining 12.5 million warrants to subscribe for Ordinary Shares with an exercise price of 4p per Ordinary Share and life to expiry of 3 years from the Option Exercise date (“Initial Consideration Warrants”).  Should the volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) of Power Metal shares meet or exceed 10.0 (ten) pence for 5 consecutive trading days Power Metal may serve notice on Thor Mining providing 14 calendar days to exercise and pay for the Initial Consideration Warrants or the Initial Consideration Warrants would be cancelled.

Should Thor Mining exercise the Initial Consideration Warrants above within 12 months from the Option Exercise date, Thor Mining will receive one for one replacement warrants to subscribe for Ordinary Shares at a fixed price of 8p per Ordinary Share, and life to expiry ending 3 years from the date of Option Exercise (“Super Warrants”). Should the Power Metal volume weighted average share price meet or exceed 20p for five consecutive trading days Power Metal may at any time issue Thor Mining with a written notice providing 14 days to exercise and pay for the Super Warrants or the Super Warrant would be cancelled.

Tail Benefit

POW will issue Thor Mining with a further US$500,000 of Ordinary Shares, if Golden Metal publishes a JORC or 43-101 compliant resource at Pilot Mountain which increases against current declared levels by 25% across total indicated and inferred categories within two years after the Agreement date.  The number of Ordinary Shares to be issued will be calculated based on the volume weighted average Power Metal share price in the ten trading days immediately preceding the announcement by Golden Metal of the JORC or 43-101 compliant increase.
