He added:  “We expect receipt of assays in several weeks and it is hoped that the results will show elevated gold levels in bedrock and warrant further deeper reverse circulation (RC) drilling."

The drilling marks the second exploratory phase of the Dundas project and Thor hopes to intersect indicator elements such as arsenic, copper or gold.

 Thor Mining holds a 60% equity interest in the Dundas project and has rights to increase that equity to 100%.

The Dundas project is located near the Albany-Fraser belt, which hosts a number of gold discoveries including the Tropicana deposit.

In early afternoon trading, Thor Mining shares held steady at 0.9p.

Thor shares shot higher last Wednesday after it agreed to buy a 25% stake in a US lithium explorer for US$75,000.
