The Spring Hill Gold Project
40% Thor Mining PLC

LOCATION & ACCESS

The Spring Hill project is located approximately 150 km south of Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory.  The location is served by all-weather access and is in close proximity to the sealed arterial Stuart Highway, north–south rail line, gas pipeline and trunk powerlines.

 

In February 2016, Thor agreed to a staged sale of the Spring Hill project for A$3.5million, plus a royalty on future gold production. The second and final tranche of the sale, due in February 2017 will result in Thor relinquishing its remaining 40% interest for consideration of A$1.5 million. The terms of the royalty agreement provide that for every ounce of gold produced, Thor will receive:

- A$15.00/ounce - if the gold price is above A$1,500/ounce
- A$6.00/ounce - if the gold price is below A$1,500/ounce

The Pilot Mountain Tungsten Project
100% Thor Mining PLC

The Pilot Mountain tungsten project is situated 200km southeast of Reno in Nevada USA.

RESOURCE ESTIMATE

The Desert Scheelite Indicated and Inferred Resource comprises 6.8 million tonnes @ 0.31% WO3, 0.17% Copper, and 22.8g/t (grams/tonne) Silver, announced on 10 June 2014.

EXPLORATION POTENTIAL

In addition to the 2014 Desert Scheelite resource, the Pilot Mountain project has significant exploration potential comprising Exploration Targets* totalling 11.0 – 22.6 Million Tonnes at 0.3 to 0.5% WO3 summarised in table 2.

* Exploration Targets are conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define a Mineral Resource under the 2012 JORC Code. It is uncertain if further exploration will result in the determination of a Mineral Resource.

The Dundas Gold Project
60% Thor Mining PLC

Thor holds a 60% interest and has rights to acquire up to a 100% interest.

LOCATION & ACCESS

The Dundas project is located in Western Australia approximately 250 kilometres south of the major regional mining centre of Kalgoorlie. Access is via tracks leading 60km south off of the sealed arterial Eyre Highway 80 kilometres east of Norseman.

The Dundas project tenement is situated in the highly prospective Albany-Fraser belt which hosts the +5 million ounce Tropicana gold deposit, and numerous other discoveries including Beachcomber, Socrates, Hercules, and Corona.

EXPLORATION AND EVALUATION

Exploration activities have focused upon near surface calcrete sampling followed by RAB and air-core drilling to intersect the top section of bedrock.  A number of prospects have been identified for drill testing which will be undertaken ni the short term.

The gold values reported within the anomalies identified in the adjacent plan are consistent with those associated with gold mineralisation elsewhere in the Albany-Fraser Belt, including that at Tropicana

Initial RAB/air core drilling at Asgard anomaly identified encouraging gold and copper mineralisation in the uppermost fresh bedrock below weathered material.
