The programme will focus on depth extension and structural delineation of the northern portion of the Alford East copper-gold deposit.
“Thor is excited about commencing its maiden drilling programme at Alford East, where our geology teams' new geological model strongly indicates new weathering boundaries opening up copper oxide mineralisation potential at depth and along strike,” said managing director Nicole Galloway Warland.
“At a time when the copper price is at decade highs, Thor is fast tracking the exploration and development of the Alford East copper project. We look forward to updating the marketing with drilling results in the coming weeks,” she said.
Last month, the company announced it won a A$300,000 grant from the South Australian government to help develop the project.
