Withers Find prospect at the Bullfinch Project

Torque Metals revs ahead with maiden drilling at Bullfinch Gold Project, WA

Torque Metals (ASX:TOR) reports it has kickstarted a maiden reverse circulation (RC) drill program at Withers Find prospect at the Bullfinch Gold Project area in Western Australia.

The project, located near Copperhead mine, about 40km north of the town of Southern Cross, is situated on Archaean greenstone lithologies prospective for gold deposits, massive sulphide nickel-copper deposits, iron ore, and lithium.

The up to 1,600m RC program to be drilled at the Withers Find ‘high-gold’ grade prospect has already recorded historical gold production of 1,308oz at 34.4g/t Au.

Commenting on the maiden drill program, Torque Metals CEO Cristian Moreno commented: “The Bullfinch Project is highly prospective with recorded historical production, and I am very pleased to announce the next steps in our exploration activities.

The Bullfinch Project is highly prospective with recorded historical production

Torque has reprocessed more than 20 magnetic and gravity surveys over the Bullfinch project, and we have unveiled structures that could host multi-element deposits.

The Withers Find prospect recorded past production of 1,308oz of gold at 34.4 grams per tonne, making it our prime maiden drilling target.”

Torque’s program at the Withers Find Prospect is designed to complete up to 1,600m of RC drilling and is the result of extensive compilation and review of historical exploration activity, the reprocessing of magnetics, radiometric, and gravity geophysics, and the collection of geochemical samples with extensive multi-element assays and proprietary machine learning analysis.

The recent, intensive data review carried out by the company has identified several ‘high quality’ follow up targets.

Exploration of these targets will be scheduled for attention within the current year

The Withers Find Prospect contains at least four main, sub parallel lines of auriferous quartz reefs with an overall strike length of about 2.5km.

Torque Metals has an exciting portfolio of ‘high-grade’ gold deposits in Western Australia. Its flagship project is the wholly owned Paris Gold Project located in the Western Australian Goldfields.
