Argonaut is expecting drilling assays from the Torrens JV

Argonaut Resources NL (ASX:ARE) has welcomed the positive results from Auroch Minerals Ltd’s (ASX:AOU) review of its recently-acquired Torrens East Copper Project in South Australia.

Auroch’s review of historical geophysical, geological and drilling data for the Torrens project has identified potential target areas for follow-up exploration.

Interestingly, Auroch’s exploration tenure is a likely eastern extension of the large Torrens JV (70% Aeris Resources; 30% Argonaut) gravity anomaly.

Earlier this month, Torrens JV completed the first drill hole in their phase I drilling program at Lake Torrens within the Torrens Exploration Project.

Preliminary geology observations from the first drill hole include a 60-metre wide intersection with hematite, potassium feldspar, and sericite altered non-magnetic interval. Final assays are pending.

“The Torrens region has been subject to several high-profile announcements and results with recent peer exploration providing a blue-print for Auroch’s exploration plans.”
