Auroch’s review of historical geophysical, geological and drilling data for the Torrens project has identified potential target areas for follow-up exploration.
Interestingly, Auroch’s exploration tenure is a likely eastern extension of the large Torrens JV (70% Aeris Resources; 30% Argonaut) gravity anomaly.

Earlier this month, Torrens JV completed the first drill hole in their phase I drilling program at Lake Torrens within the Torrens Exploration Project.
Preliminary geology observations from the first drill hole include a 60-metre wide intersection with hematite, potassium feldspar, and sericite altered non-magnetic interval. Final assays are pending.

Auroch chief executive officer Aidan Platel said: “The company has completed an initial compilation and review of historical peer and government data with the company eager to begin exploration work on what we believe to be a highly-prospective project.
“The Torrens region has been subject to several high-profile announcements and results with recent peer exploration providing a blue-print for Auroch’s exploration plans.”
