Torr (TMET) has generated untested copper-gold targets within 8.5 x 2.2 km of the Hu Zone.

The Hu Zone – part of the company’s 100-per-cent-owned 689 km2 Latham Project in B.C.’s Golden Triangle – encompasses two registered historical copper-gold-molybdenum occurrences at Hu West and Stain Creek.

Within the Hu Zone, Torr has identified an extensive footprint of >100 ppm copper anomalies measuring 8.5 x 2.2 km and backed by 265 historical soil samples.

Within this footprint are three high-priority >300 ppm copper soil anomalies backed by 31 historical soil samples at the Copper Ridge, Huey and Stain Creek targets coincident with historical soils containing anomalous gold, silver, molybdenum, zinc and lead.

The company has begun to delineate a potential copper-gold porphyry target (Huey Target) backed by 20 historical soil samples >300 ppm copper. Huey is east of Stain Creek and defined by a soil anomaly measuring 750 m x 450 m coincident with anomalous pathfinder elements, including gold (>31 ppb), silver (>1 ppm), molybdenum (>5 ppm), zinc (>150 ppm), lead (>20 ppm), arsenic (>50 ppm) and antimony (>3 ppm).

Mapping in the Hu Area conducted by the British Columbia Geological Survey identified two regional-scale faults, which Torr interprets to intersect with the Huey Target.

Torr is currently reprocessing ~8.2 km2 of coincident historical induced polarization and ground magnetic geophysical surveys within the Hu Zone, which will aid in the exploration and delineation of potential additional targets.

The copper anomalies remain open to the north and east of Stain Creek, which, like the Huey Target, is suggestive of a large-scale and potentially fertile geological and structural setting the company will follow up with further exploration.

Exploration update:

  • Processing of the Dalvenie Zone induced polarization survey is currently underway
  • Assays are also pending on 275 rock grab samples and 1,316 soil samples collected during the 2022 field program

President and CEO Malcolm Dorsey sat down with Daniella Atkinson to discuss the new targets and how they’ll guide future exploration.

Torr Metals is a Vancouver-based mineral exploration company focused on defining and developing its Latham Copper-Gold Project in B.C.’s Golden Triangle.

Torr Metals (TMET) opened trading at C$0.10.
