Thor Explorations Ltd. Announces Remaining In Pit Drill Results at Segilola, Nigeria and Exercise of Options

10.12.2020 | 14:00 Uhr | GlobeNewswire
VANCOUVER, Dec. 10, 2020 - Thor Explorations Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: THX) (“Thor” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a final set of encouraging drill results from its in-pit and extensional diamond core drilling program at its Segilola Gold Project in Nigeria, which is scheduled to pour first gold in Q2 2021. The diamond core drilling program was designed to target and de-risk the lower portions of the in-pit resource by upgrading those portions currently classified as Inferred Resources in the Segilola Definitive Feasibility Study.

Significant intersections include:

  • Drillhole SGD211: 32.5m (17m true width) grading at 3.2g/tAu
    including 16m at 2.6g/tAu and 4.3m at 14.5g/tAu
  • Drillhole SGD212: 47.5m (20m true width) grading at 2.2g/tAu
    including 18m at 4.0g/tAu and 2.4m at 7.5g/tAu

Drilling Results

Hole SGD211 confirmed the continuity of mineralisation near the deepest part of the DFS design pit with grades that are consistent with those previously estimated in that portion of the resource. In addition, the hole confirmed both strike and downdip continuity of a higher grade footwall zone that averaged 14.4g/tAu over a true width of 2.8m. This footwall zone was noted in an historic up-dip drill-hole which returned 2.75m (1.5m true width) at 15.4g/tAu (Figure 1).

Figure 1 is available at https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/1921c067-c2a2-4bf3-9df9-f9fa0ab023ee

Figure 2 is available at https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/613d34bb-7f1f-49f8-a48f-5af1c38f100b

Hole SGD212 is located 170m south from SGD211 and was also targeted to intersect the mineralisation both near and below the base of the DFS design pit. The main lode package (mineralised lode and internal dilution) was intersected over a true width of 20m at a grade of 2.0g/tAu.

Mineralisation has also been confirmed to a depth of at least 22m below the design pit. The package included two higher grade zones of 6.8m true width grading 4.0g/tAu and the southern continuation of the higher-grade footwall zone which returned 1.1m true grading 7.5g/tAu. This footwall zone was also intersected in an historic up-dip drillhole which returned 2. 5m (1.2m true) at 37g/tAu (Figure 2).

The complete list of drill intersections received to date for the diamond drilling completed in 2020 is tabled in Appendix 1. Fire assays were carried out by MSA Laboratories, Vancouver on half-core samples.


The Company believes that the completed in-pit drilling programme will result in a larger open pit resource with a higher percentage of Indicated Resources. An updated resource estimate is currently targeted for early February 2021.

The results from these holes also strongly indicate that the current resource may be expanded below the current DFS pit design. In the vicinity of SGD212, mineralisation is confirmed to a depth of at least an additional 22m below the design pit.

There is potential to further increase the resource with future drill-targeting of the hanging-wall and footwall lodes and to explore the underground potential.

Thor management believes that the additional data collected will have a potentially significant positive impact on the project economics.

Segun Lawson, President & CEO, stated: “The continuation of positive drill results not only provides adequate de-risking of a key operational aspect i.e., continuity of mineralisation near the base of the design pit, but, more significantly, shows continuity outside the current reserve limits. We are aiming to update the Segilola resource statement in early Q1 2021, prior to mining. We believe that we have sufficient information through this drilling to materially increase the indicated resource which should, ultimately, have a positive impact on the recoverable ounces. ”

Definitive Feasibility Study Resource

The currently announced Segilola open pit mineral resource comprises 441,000 ounces Au at 4.5g/tAu indicated and 73,000 ounces at 6.8g/tAu inferred. Based on a probable reserve of 405,000 ounces Au at 4.20g/tAu, the current project open pit DFS shows a post-tax NPV5% US$138m, a 50% IRR and a payback in under 1.4 years. These figures are based on the data as 1 December 2018 and a gold price of US$1,300.

With the current reserve, at a US$1,600 gold price, the Segilola Project shows a post-tax NPV5% pf US$238.1m and at a US$1,800 gold price shows a post-tax NPV5% of US$305m.

Following the completion of the updated reserve statement, the Company’s management expect the post-tax NPV to be increased materially.
