  • Torr Metals (TMET) released results from the compilation of 522 historical soil samples collected at the Gnat Pass copper-gold porphyry deposit and adjacent areas
  • The deposit has shown more than 100 parts per million copper (ppm Cu)
  • The company has also delineated two new zones at Gnat West and Gnat South where historical gold and copper anomalies have never been directly or systematically drill tested
  • Torr Metals Inc. (TMET) is trading steady at C$0.145

Torr Metals (TMET) released results from the compilation of 522 historical soil samples collected at the Gnat Pass copper-gold porphyry deposit.

From this analysis, the company has delineated the core to the Gnat Pass porphyry deposit defined by a broad envelope that extends more than 850 metres in strike-length and more 500 metres in width, remaining open to the north and is coincident with an induced polarization (IP) resistivity signature.

The deposit has shown more than 100 parts per million copper (ppm Cu).

Partially overlapping a portion of the Hill Zone is a 20 parts per billion (ppb) gold soil anomaly with 19 historical soil samples outlining a footprint measuring 450 metres by 350 metres.

The Vancouver-based mineral exploration company has also delineated two new zones at Gnat West and Gnat South, where historical gold and copper anomalies have never been directly or systematically drill tested.

Torr Metals’ President and CEO, Malcolm Dorsey stated that the compilation of these historical soil results highlights the strength and significant upside potential to the gold content at the Gnat Pass copper porphyry deposit and peripheral zones, where assaying for gold has remained largely neglected.

“The extent and grade of these historical soil survey results are also very encouraging, suggesting strong comparisons to the initial work conducted at the nearby Saddle North1 copper-gold porphyry deposit located 51 km to our south. With this data and the compilation of all historical drilling we plan to test the grade and extent of copper-gold mineralization as well as expansion potential of the Gnat Pass deposit in our upcoming 2022 drill program.”

The Gnat Pass area has been tested by a total of 111 historical drill holes (19,456 metres) that date from 1965-1968, 1989, and 2012.

The Gnat Pass copper-gold porphyry deposit is located within 1.5 km of Highway 37 in the northeast portion of Torr’s 100 per cent owned 689 sq km Latham Project, within the Golden Triangle region of northern British Columbia.

Torr Metals Inc. (TMET) is trading steady at C$0.145.
