Appointment of CEO and New Project Acquisition
Thomas will continue to lead the Company's IOCG exploration efforts in South Australia, including the maiden drilling campaign scheduled for early Q4 2020.
Taruga CEO Thomas Line commented, "South Australian geology is a strong passion of mine and the exploration efforts to date at Flinders have been extremely encouraging as numerous high-grade and shallow IOCG targets are being developed. The addition of the Torrens Project to the TAR portfolio creates even more potential and my appointment as CEO means full time dedication in turning TAR into a successful exploration company."
EL 6437 - TORRENS PROJECT
Taruga is pleased to announce the inclusion of the Torrens Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold (IOCG) Project (EL6437), as part of its 100% option agreement with Strikeline Resources Pty Ltd, with no changes to the original acquisition terms. The Torrens IOCG Project borders the Flinders IOCG Project to the north and is situated within the G2 Structural corridor which hosts the nearby Olympic Dam and Carrapateena IOCGs.
Strong magnetic and gravity anomalies have been identified at Torrens, which have had limited or no drilling. The magnetic anomalies at Torrens, which are currently being reprocessed, are similar to those at Flinders to the south where significant grades of copper and gold mineralisation have been reported from surface exposures. Historic drilling at Torrens has intersected anomalous copper, gold and precious metals across several metres in various drill holes, often associated with altered breccias similar to those which host IOCG-style mineralisation identified at the Flinders Project. No information regarding quality control procedures or assay methods used is available for the drilling data.
Taruga CEO Thomas Line commented "We are extremely excited to include the Torrens Project to our growing portfolio of highly prospective and underexplored IOCG-style targets in South Australia. Torrens represents a frontier within the highly prospective G2 structural corridor. We are looking for large systems from surface, and these anomalies have the potential for the definition of high tonnages of copper and gold bearing breccias."
