Undertaking Innovative Drilling At Kapunda Copper ISR Project
Thor Mining Plc (AIM, ASX: THR, OTCQB: THORF) has commenced drilling at the Kapunda Copper ISR Project in South Australia.
EnviroCopper Ltd (in which Thor holds a 30% equity interest), in collaboration with MinEx CRC, is undertaking an innovative Coiled Tube (CT) drilling programme at Kapunda.
MinEx CRC is the world’s largest mineral exploration collaboration, bringing together mining industry (including drilling companies), government and research organisations.
Nicole Galloway Warland, Managing Director of Thor Mining, said the drilling is designed to trial technological advancements using a safer, environmentally friendly mining technology with a low footprint. Drilling is targeting copper-gold mineralisation approximately 30m from the planned in-situ recovery (ISR) push/pull test site to the south of Kapunda township.
A geophysics IP anomaly was also identified in this area by Copper Range Ltd in 2008, The drilling programme is anticipated to take approximately four weeks.
“It’s great to see mineral exploration collaborations between industry, government and research organisations, such as this Coiled Tubed (CT) drilling programme between EnviroCopper and MinEx CRC,” Ms Galloway Warland said.
“Based on geology and access, Kapunda is an ideal location to be trialling the next generation of CT drilling, whilst collecting geological information on the copper-gold mineralisation, which is valuable for the further development of the Kapunda Copper ISR Project.”
