How will Yttrium discovery benefit Torian Resources?
- Torian Resources Limited has confirmed surface anomalies of Yttrium at its Mt Stirling Central project in Western Australia. According to Torian Resources, Yttrium presence is a key indicator of potential presence of rare earth minerals.
- In its ongoing exploration activities at the Mt Stirling Central project, Torian has drilled 151 Auger holes systematically and the reconnaissance fieldwork has confirmed the presence of prospective outcrops, for rare earth minerals. Torian being majorly a gold explorer found the presence of Yttrium through portable X-ray fluorescence (pXRF) processing being undertaken for gold exploration.
- TNR has already sent the Auger drilling samples for multi-element assays and expects lab results in two weeks. If lab results are favourable, TNR will potentially expand its Mt Stirling project plans with a rare earths project addition.
The Yttrium discovery is in addition to the 5 high priority gold targets discovered earlier which have been confirmed as primary gold targets.
Mt Stirling project is the flagship project of Torian Resources and discovery of Yttrium has potentially expanded the project scope. As a result, TNR share price has taken a 20% leap on ASX today.
