- According to Perth-based Torque, the initial round of drilling at Strauss that comprised 24 RC holes for an aggregate coverage of 1,722m points to a consistent gold mineralised zone over a minimum strike length of 150m.
- Additional assays from Strauss and other prospects that have been drilled as part of Torque’s maiden 102-hole campaign totalling 7,427m at the Paris project about 120km south-south-east of Kalgoorlie are pending.
- Of particular importance is that, whilst only 3km west of the recent broad and high-grade gold intersected at Observation, Strauss is a completely new gold mineralised zone discovered, and is further evidence of the potential for significant gold discoveries along the Boulder Lefroy Fault Zone.
- Torque Metals Executive Chairman Ian FinchObservation lies only 2.5km north-north-west of Torque’s existing Paris gold deposit and 900m north-north-west of the HHH deposit.
- Torque says the purpose of the first-pass drilling at the Paris prospects was to better define the zones most likely to rapidly increase the project’s gold resource, most of which occurs below and along strike from the former HHH and Paris open pits.
- Previous owner of Paris and now Torque major shareholder Austral Pacific produced about 18,200 ounces of gold more than four years ago from the shallow Paris and nearby HHH open pits.
