Torian Resources receives promising first gold assays from Zuleika drill program

The drilling was designed to test the mineralisation with angled holes to depths of around 150 metres.

Drilling at the Zuleika project in Western Australia

Torian Resources Ltd (ASX:TNR) has received significant reverse circulation (RC) drill results from its program at the Paradigm South prospect within its Western Australian Zuleika Gold Project.

The company completed seven holes for 888 metres as part of phase II of planned exploration, with the results coming from the initial 4-metre composite.

Results include 8 metres at 3.14 g/t gold from 100 metres; 8 metres at 1.16 g/t from 36 metres; and 4 metres at 2.81 g/t from 140 metres.

These assays were taken from black shale unit, oxidised dolerite unit and sheared felsic volcanics, respectively.

Target along strike with Paradigm mine

The Paradigm South area lies in the northern portion of the Zuleika project, along strike to the south of Northern Star Resources Ltd’s (ASX:NST) historical Paradigm gold mine.

The area has had only limited and wide-spaced, shallow historical rotary air blast and aircore drilling.

Torian’s initial oxide RC drilling confirmed the geological model for Paradigm south and the continuation of the geology as seen in the area around Northern Star’s Paradigm mine.

The recent results appear to show that mineralisation associated with the Paradigm mine continues south onto Torian’s ground.

Torian managing director Matthew Sullivan said the results at Paradigm South were very encouraging and confirmed the company’s interpretation of the area’s geology.

Sullivan said: “We are now planning more drilling to follow up these wide spaced holes.

“The Zuleika project remains our main focus and we have lots more results to come.”

The zones of mineralisation identified at Paradigm South remain open at depth and several other high priority targets within the project have only been lightly explored.

More complex geological structures in the area suggest the potential for additional mineralisation styles to be present away from the main vein structure.
