TORQUE METALS DISCOVERS NEW SHALLOW GOLD ZONE

High-Grade Results Boost Paris Gold Project Potential

Torque Metals Limited (ASX: TOR) has announced the discovery of a new shallow gold mineralisation zone and high-grade results from its latest drill programme at the Paris Gold Project in Western Australia. These results significantly enhance the project’s potential, indicating a geological link along a 2.5km corridor between the Paris, HHH, and Observation prospects.

Key highlights from the drilling include:

  • 16.3m @ 7.95 g/t gold from 272m, including 4.63m @ 25.62 g/t gold from 277m in 24PDD001
  • 10.79m @ 3.64 g/t gold from 144m and 5.26m @ 3.8 g/t gold from 166.58m within 27.84m @ 2.19 g/t gold from 144m in 24PRCDD096
  • 9m @ 2.6 g/t gold from 78m and 3m @ 9.23 g/t gold from 105m within 48m @ 1.37 g/t gold from 72m in 24PRC106

Torque’s Managing Director, Cristian Moreno, commented:

Drilling at Torque’s Paris gold project again unveiled strong gold values across Paris, HHH, and Observation prospects. Paris mine mineralisation was extended east, west, and up dip, with notable intersections including 16.3m @ 7.95 g/t gold, 27.84m @ 2.19 g/t gold, 48m @ 1.37 g/t gold, and 8m @ 6.77 g/t gold.

Drilling North of the Paris pit revealed shallow gold intervals extending ~500m north-south, signifying a new gold discovery and suggesting a 1.5km connection between HHH and Paris pits. Notable intersections include 16m @ 4.19 g/t gold from 66m, 12m @ 4.29 g/t gold from 69m, 12m @ 1.2 g/t gold from 99m, and 12m @ 1.37 g/t gold from 72m.

Torque’s exploration team has clearly identified a new gold enriched zone, leveraging the successful lithostructural model, enhancing results from Paris, HHH, and Observation prospects. Paris’ proximity to infrastructure, including nearby processing plants, enhances the value of Torque’s 13 pre-native title development-ready Mining Licences in our ~1,200km² tenement holding.

The immediate focus is on further defining shallow gold lodes and advancing Torque’s first mineral resource estimate and maiden gold exploration target.
