Gold and copper explorer Torrens Mining (ASX: TRN) is pleased to announce the results of reconnaissance rock chip sampling at the Goldie Prospect located within our Mt Piper Gold Project in Central Victoria.
Torrens confirms that 7 of a total of 13 reconnaissance rock chip samples taken from historical gold workings at the Goldie Prospect, part of the Mt Piper Gold Project in Central Victoria, returned high-grade gold results.
Significant results include:
- 19.15g/t Au in RC002B
- 19.78g/t Au in RC003A
- 17.93g/t Au in RC003B
- 14.72g/t Au in RC003C
- 14.00g/t Au in RC004
- 9.28g/t Au in RC003D
- 8.60g/t Au in RC003D
The Goldie Prospect (previously named Crough’s Hill South) is marked by a pronounced gold-in-soil anomaly identified by soil sampling undertaken by Torrens1 along a previously unexplored trend of highly magnetic rocks.
Continued systematic sampling and mapping are underway, with further results expected in December 2021 and January 2022.
Torrens’ Managing Director Steve Shedden said:
“The rock chip results from the historical prospecting pits are highly encouraging and certainly confirm the presence of a gold mineralised system at Goldie. These results, and the previously announced very strong gold-in-soil geochemical signature at Goldie1, suggest that we are vectoring toward a potentially large mineralised system associated with the regional-scale Mt William Fault.
Our exploration team, led by Exploration Manager Pat Say, continues to systematically assess the near surface gold potential of the area, with the aim to mobilise a diamond drill rig to Goldie late this year or early in 2022.”
