VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Thor Explorations Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: THX) (“Thor” or the “Firm”) is happy to announce a ultimate set of encouraging drill outcomes from its in-pit and extensional diamond core drilling program at its Segilola Gold Challenge in Nigeria, which is scheduled to pour first gold in Q2 2021. The diamond core drilling program was designed to focus on and de-risk the decrease parts of the in-pit useful resource by upgrading these parts at present categorised as Inferred Assets within the Segilola Definitive Feasibility Examine.
Vital intersections embrace:
- Drillhole SGD211: 32.5m (17m true width) grading at 3.2g/tAu
together with 16m at 2.6g/tAu and 4.3m at 14.5g/tAu
- Drillhole SGD212: 47.5m (20m true width) grading at 2.2g/tAu
together with 18m at 4.0g/tAu and a couple of.4m at 7.5g/tAu
|Desk 1: Vital outcomes (0.5g/tAu decrease minimize off)|
Gap SGD211 confirmed the continuity of mineralisation close to the deepest a part of the DFS design pit with grades which are in step with these beforehand estimated in that portion of the useful resource. As well as, the opening confirmed each strike and downdip continuity of a better grade footwall zone that averaged 14.4g/tAu over a real width of two.8m. This footwall zone was famous in an historic up-dip drill-hole which returned 2.75m (1.5m true width) at 15.4g/tAu (Determine 1).

Gap SGD212 is positioned 170m south from SGD211 and was additionally focused to intersect the mineralisation each close to and beneath the bottom of the DFS design pit. The principle lode bundle (mineralised lode and inside dilution) was intersected over a real width of 20m at a grade of two.0g/tAu.
Mineralisation has additionally been confirmed to a depth of at the very least 22m beneath the design pit. The bundle included two greater grade zones of 6.8m true width grading 4.0g/tAu and the southern continuation of the higher-grade footwall zone which returned 1.1m true grading 7.5g/tAu. This footwall zone was additionally intersected in an historic up-dip drillhole which returned 2. 5m (1.2m true) at 37g/tAu (Determine 2).
The entire checklist of drill intersections obtained thus far for the diamond drilling accomplished in 2020 is tabled in Appendix 1. Fireplace assays had been carried out by MSA Laboratories, Vancouver on half-core samples.
The Firm believes that the finished in-pit drilling programme will end in a bigger open pit useful resource with the next proportion of Indicated Assets. An up to date useful resource estimate is at present focused for early February 2021.
The outcomes from these holes additionally strongly point out that the present useful resource could also be expanded beneath the present DFS pit design. Within the neighborhood of SGD212, mineralisation is confirmed to a depth of at the very least an extra 22m beneath the design pit.
There may be potential to additional enhance the useful resource with future drill-targeting of the hanging-wall and footwall lodes and to discover the underground potential.
Thor administration believes that the extra knowledge collected may have a probably vital optimistic affect on the undertaking economics.
Segun Lawson, President & CEO, said: “The continuation of optimistic drill outcomes not solely offers sufficient de-risking of a key operational facet i.e., continuity of mineralisation close to the bottom of the design pit, however, extra considerably, reveals continuity exterior the present reserve limits. We’re aiming to replace the Segilola useful resource assertion in early Q1 2021, previous to mining. We consider that we have now ample info by means of this drilling to materially enhance the indicated useful resource which ought to, in the end, have a optimistic affect on the recoverable ounces. ”
Definitive Feasibility Examine Resource
The at present introduced Segilola open pit mineral useful resource contains 441,000 ounces Au at 4.5g/tAu indicated and 73,000 ounces at 6.8g/tAu inferred. Primarily based on a possible reserve of 405,000 ounces Au at 4.20g/tAu, the present undertaking open pit DFS reveals a post-tax NPV5% US$138m, a 50% IRR and a payback in below 1.4 years. These figures are based mostly on the info as 1 December 2018 and a gold value of US$1,300.
With the present reserve, at a US$1,600 gold value, the Segilola Challenge reveals a post-tax NPV5% pf US$238.1m and at a US$1,800 gold value reveals a post-tax NPV5% of US$305m.
Following the completion of the up to date reserve assertion, the Firm’s administration count on the post-tax NPV to be elevated materially.
