Interim results for the Samarkand prospect obtained via portable X-ray fluorescence (XRF) determination show highlights of 15 metres grading 0.44% tungsten trioxide (WO₃), 8 metres at 0.36% WO₃, and 11 metres at 0.61% WO₃.
The drilling also hit copper, with highlights including five metres at 0.5% copper, 12 metres at 0.69% copper and six metres at 0.97% copper.
"More very good XRF tungsten results along with exciting copper readings from the Samarkand deposit at Bonya," enthused Thor executive chairman Mick Billing.
"The proposed Molyhil processing facility is designed to extract copper as well as tungsten and molybdenum so any primary copper at Bonya can be extracted at minimal additional cost.
"We look forward to the full laboratory assays from this drill program, along with results from the trench sampling from Marrakech and Tashkent, all expected during May."
