Gold and copper explorer Torrens Mining Limited (ASX: TRN) is pleased to report that drilling has commenced at the Company’s high priority Northwood Hill Gold Prospect, located within our Mt Piper Gold Project in Central Victoria. This drilling program is the first in over 30 years to be conducted at Northwood Hill and will be following up a 5km long anomalous gold trend previously identified by Perseverance Mining in the early 1990s.
- Diamond drilling has commenced at the Northwood Hill Gold Prospect.
- Phase 1 of the program will consist of approximately 1,100m of drilling within a 5km long gold anomalous corridor.
- Assay results are expected throughout July, August and September 2021.
Torrens’ Managing Director Steve Shedden said:
“Commencement of drilling at Northwood Hill in the Central Victorian Goldfields, where historical drill intercepts include 7m @ 2.37g/t Au from 20m, is a major milestone for Torrens and follows our successful listing on the ASX in January.
“This work comes on the back of drilling work that is now underway at our Elizabeth Creek copper joint venture project in South Australia.
“Northwood Hill represents a classic “sleeping giant” in the Victorian sense and, without question, had this 5km long gold anomalous trend been located in Western Australia, it would have already been thoroughly explored.
“The opportunity for Torrens in this new gold province is huge and we look forward to updating the market on our progress over the coming months.
“I congratulate our Exploration Manager Patrick Say and his field team for bringing Northwood Hill through to the drilling stage.”
