Thor Mining Identifies Electromagnetic Conductor at Ragged Range Project

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Thor Mining (ASX: THR) recently completed an electromagnetic geophysics survey at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Ragged Range project in the Eastern Pilbara of Western Australia.

Thor Mining reported the high-powered Fixed Loop Electromagnetics (FLEM) ground geophysics survey has identified a shallow conductor beneath the nickel gossan at the project’s Krona prospect.

The survey over the gossan was designed to detect conductive anomalies at depth that may indicate the presence of massive nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation to constrain initial drill testing.

The company has interpreted the conductor to be consistent with sulphides and has deemed it to warrant drill testing to validate.

Thor indicated it would be drill testing the shallow conductor, including downhole EM, as part of an upcoming reverse circulation (RC) drilling program scheduled to commence next week at the Sterling gold prospect.

“I am encouraged that the first ground geophysics survey at Ragged Range has identified a shallow electromagnetic conductor,” Thor Mining managing director Nicole Galloway Warland said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“The target is modelled at around 100 metres below the surface, establishing it a clear drill target for the upcoming RC drilling program.

“We look forward to drill testing this anomaly as part of our RC drilling program, scheduled to commence at Sterling prospect next week.”
