Analysis Reveals Torque’s Potential to Connect Goldfields Mines


Analysis of the data, in addition to recent assay results, has identified a potential opportunity for Torque Metals to link its historic Paris and HHH gold mines and increase its overall gold project resources in Paris.

A review of historic drilling in the northeast zone has confirmed the presence of shallow gold mineralization in the 1500m between the two pits with an air drilling program planned to test the theory.

Torque says the historic findings lay the foundation for a potential “Big Pit” at the site with the next drilling campaign expected to begin before the end of the year.

Historical assay results between the two pits include a 3m section grading 6.60 grams of gold per tonne from 72m and another hole recording a 4m strike at 3.5 g/t d gold from 30 m.

Additional data from a historic shallow drill campaign includes a 3m intersection returning 3.42 g/t gold from 57m and a 6m section grading 2.07 g/t from 30m.

The company believes that historical results show a possible link between the Paris and HHH pits in addition to the nearby Caruso deposit.

Torque argues that the Greater Paris gold project remains largely under-explored, with past drilling mostly limited to the top 50 meters.

The operation is located along the strike and in the same corridor of the Boulder-Lefroy fault as the Kalgoorlie Super Pit, endowed with more than 20 million ounces of gold.

Our most recent findings from the review of historical drilling in the 1500m between the HHH and Paris pits suggest that Paris could develop into a very significant gold project in Western Australia, with great potential for expansion not only in the easterly direction. -west, but also in a north-south orientation, with a promising extension of more than 1500 meters between the historic pits.

Torque recently completed a 3,200m RC drilling campaign on its Paris, Paris Sud, Carreras and Pavarotti prospects targeting gold anomalies highlighted in previous drilling, auger geochemistry and sampling.

Highlights from the latest round of drilling include a 27m intercept grading 10.7 grams per tonne gold from 177m, including a 12m intercept grading 19.7g/t from 177 m in addition to a 6 m strike at 32.45 g/t gold from 183 m.

The company has now completed four successful drilling campaigns on the Greater Paris project since listing on the ASX in June last year.

The Paris area now has a longitudinal extent of more than 600 m which remains open to the northwest, southeast and at depth.

A ground-based moving loop electromagnetic survey testing conductive nickel sulphides at the site’s Domingo, Melchior and Melchior West prospects is nearing completion with processing and interpretation underway.

While the latest drilling results in Paris are hailed as the best to date, the market will keep a close eye on the area with its game-changing “Big Pit” potential which should be tested in the coming months.
