BEIJING (Asian Metal) 17 Mar 17 - The Board of Thor Mining Plc (“Thor” or the “Company”) advised the successful completion of the first round of drilling at the Company’s wholly owned Pilot Mountain tungsten project in Nevada, USA.
51 metres of scheelite bearing skarn including 9 metres with visible sulphide mineralisation (including chalcopyrite) were intersected in hole 2.
Hole 3 intersected 15 metres of mineralised skarn from 124 . 7m, which is in line with the results from the 2012 drilling program.
Six holes were completed at Garnet with better than expected results, which bodes well for a near term maiden resource for the deposit . The unexpected additional scheelite mineralisation discovered in Hole 17GR-RC05 asserts the robust potential of this project.
Confirmation of metal grades within the reported mineralised skarn intersections will be determined via laboratory assays and announced within four weeks.
