Gold and copper explorer, Torrens Mining Limited, has announced that a fixed-wing airborne magnetic programme over the high priority Northwood Hill Gold Prospect within their Central Victorian Mt Piper Project has commenced.
The Northwood Hill Prospect sits within Torrens’ EL7331 and is one of several gold Prospects within the company’s broader Mt Piper Project in Central Victoria.
MAGSPEC Airborne Surveys will complete a 3,922 line-kilometre survey over a 5-7 day period, subject to weather.
The survey will be flown along 50-metre line spacings at a height of approximately 40 metres.
Torrens’ Managing Director, Steve Shedden, shared that their key target in Central Victoria is structurally-controlled gold mineralisation, which typically has only very subtle surface expression.
“Close-spaced, high-resolution, aeromagnetic data allows us to better define potential drilling targets, especially when combined with geochemistry and boots-on-the-ground geological mapping,” Mr Shedden said.
“The results of this survey will considerably improve our existing geophysical dataset and will dramatically improve our understanding of the structural regime at Northwood Hill and Whitehead Creek.”
“Without doubt, developing a structural model in tandem with new in-ground drilling data will exponentially improve our chances of success, and with drilling about to commence, Torrens is at the starting gate in anticipation of an exciting gold discovery journey,” he commented.
The details of the drilling program are expected to be revealed during a later announcement.
