Bygoo tin project

Thomson Resources uncovers further ‘outstanding’ tin results from new Bygoo discovery, NSW

Thomson Resources (ASX:TMZ) reports further strong mineralised greisens have been intersected in recent drilling at its 100%-owned Bygoo Tin Project, located in the Lachlan Fold Belt in New South Wales.

The company notes that the results have now been received for two more batches of assays from the 2022 drilling program, including four holes drilled at the new discovery at ‘Stewarts, 300m northwest of the Main Zone.

The holes were following up an intersection of 111m at 0.45% Sn from 57m depth in BNRC691.

Drilling at Stewarts was initially aimed at defining the width of the zone as it was thought that the discovery hole, BNRC69, may have drilled down dip.

Thomson reports that as it turns out this is partly true, but instead of the mineralisation being 10-15m wide it is variable and up to 60m wide.

Commenting on the results, Executive Chairman David Williams said: “Some further great results for the Bygoo Tin Project coming out of the Lachlan Fold Belt drilling program conducted earlier this year.

“The tin grades are fantastic and interesting to see some copper coming into it as well”

The tin grades are fantastic and interesting to see some copper coming into it as well.

The expansion of the Stewarts zone we are seeing is great and shows the continuing potential of this tin project.”

The observed greisens are variable in strength and mineralogy, varying from quartz tourmaline to quartz-topaz.

Within the overall “greisen” zone there are patches of unmineralised granite between stronger greisen development.

There is one final batch of assays that is still in the laboratories for assay and results are expected in late July or August.

Thomson reports that the positive results from nine of the 10 holes drilled so far indicate that there remains a significant program of drilling for mineralisation extensions to be carried out in summer 2022-23.
