Torian extends WA gold run with string of shallow hits
Torian Resources has continued its run of gold hits at its 100 per cent-owned Mt Stirling project in the Eastern Goldfields of WA that extends its mineralised gold envelope up-dip towards surface. The Mt Stirling project is located 40 kilometres northwest of Leonora in WA and a mere 8km northwest of Red 5’s King of the Hills gold mine that has produced more than 1 million ounces of gold to date with up to 3.1 million ounces at 1.5 g/t gold still in the ground.
The near surface mineralised intercept is interpreted by the company as being up-dip from its ‘Skywing position’ that recently gave up some solid results. In addition to proving up its recent discoveries at Mt Stirling, Torian’s current drilling aims to upgrade the confidence level of the resource from the inferred to indicated category. Torian is also working to add further gold ounces to its resource at Mt Stirling through drilling by extending the strike length and depth of the gold system.
With a major player just up the road in Red 5’s King of the Hills gold project, Torian boasts an enviable postal address with known mineralisation potential. Armed with a triumvirate of rigs and an immense drilling campaign ahead, punters will be keen to see what the new year has in store for this budding WA explorer.
