Argonaut Resources NL (ASX:ARE) has resolved to proceed with stage I of a major drilling program at the Torrens Joint Venture in South Australia.

Stage I will involve 8-10 drill holes to depths of 700-1,500m targeting priority drill targets.

Parties to the joint venture have committed sufficient funding for the 2019 financial year to complete this work.

Preparations are well advanced, and a commencement date will be revealed once the timing of certain logistical matters is confirmed.

The Torrens Copper Project hosts a very large iron-oxide, copper, gold (IOCG) target and is the company’s primary focus.

The project consists of three exploration licences, the primary licence is held in joint venture with Aeris Resources (ASX:AIS) who holds 70% alongside Argonaut’s 30% operating interest.

The sheer size of the anomaly is impressive given it is larger than the nearby multi-billion-dollar Olympic Dam mine, one of the largest copper deposits in the world.

In the event of discovery, there is scope for a very large tonnage deposit and successive discoveries.
