Aeris Resources Ltd (ASX:AIS) has completed the first drill hole, TD7, from its phase I drilling program at Lake Torrens within its 70% owned Torrens Exploration Project in South Australia.

Preliminary geology observations of TD7 include a 60-metre wide intersection with hematite, potassium feldspar, and sericite altered non-magnetic interval.

Notably, hematite is recognised as an accessory mineral associated with iron oxide copper gold mineralisation within the Gawler Craton.

The Torrens Project (EL5614), is a joint venture with Kelaray Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Argonaut Resources NL (ASX:ARE), who owns the other 30%.
