Torr Metals (TMET) has initiated the 2022 field program on its 100 per cent owned 689 km2 Latham Copper-Gold Project.

Located within the prolific Golden Triangle region of northern BC, a total of 9 historical rock grab samples yielded assays greater than 1 per cent copper (Cu) with 7 samples containing more than 1 gram per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) within the Dalvenie Zone. The highest-grade historical rock grab sample yielded an assay of 8.86 per cent Cu, 6.45 g/t Au, and 62.4 g/t silver (Ag)

Initial fieldwork will consist of a ground-based 4.3 km 2  induced polarization (IP) survey to follow-up on a ground magnetic survey, previously conducted over the Dalvenie Zone and coincident with known surface mineralization.

The Dalvenie Zone is ideally situated to nearby infrastructure with access to Highway 37 via a roughly 2 km gravel road leading to the town and regional airport at Dease Lake 30 km to the northwest.

The company’s President and CEO, Malcolm Dorsey stated that the IP survey will add substantial value to the Dalvenie Zone as it will provide a view of the subsurface that will help in defining potential drill targets for the upcoming drill program.

“This 2022 field season promises to be very exciting for Torr as we will be the first to systematically explore the highly prospective Dalvenie Zone in addition to testing the expansion potential beyond 1960’s shallow drilling at the Gnat Pass copper-porphyry deposit. We anticipate that this together with targeted exploration of our massive district-scale land package will continue to produce value for our shareholders.”

Torr Metals is a Vancouver-based mineral exploration company focused on defining and developing the substantial exploration and resource potential of the ~689 km2 Latham Copper-Gold project, located within the prolific Golden Triangle of northern British Columbia.

Torr Metals Inc. shares were unchanged at close, trading at $0.16.
