The directors of Thor Energy Plc (“Thor”) (AIM, ASX: THR, OTCQB: THORF) are pleased to announce the positive results from the recently completed heliborne magnetic and radiometric surveys over the Company’s 100% owned uranium and vanadium projects – Wedding Bell, Radium Mountain and Vanadium King, situated within the Uravan Mineral Belt in Colorado and Utah, USA.

Helicopter-borne Magnetic and Radiometric Survey over historical uranium workings at the Wedding Bell Project

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Several strong uranium anomalies delineated; these are along strike of historic workings, as well as over previously untested areas (Figure 1).
  • Ground truthing is now underway over the uranium anomalies, which are being prioritised and ranked.
  • The priority anomalies identified at Section 23 Prospect, and along strike of the Groundhog historic workings, will both be drill-tested as part of the proposed upcoming drilling program (Figure 1).
  • Federal (BLM) and Colorado (DRMS) drill permits received, now awaiting San Miguel County approval to commence follow-up drilling from the successful 2022 Program, at Rim Rock, Groundhog and Section 23, Wedding Bell Project.

Thor is very excited by the results from the recently completed high-resolution heliborne magnetic and radiometric surveys. Several strong uranium anomalies were identified and are located along strike of the historic workings (such as Groundhog at Wedding Bell Project) which may represent extensions to the mineralisation, whilst several new untested areas of interest have also been highlighted. One of these anomalies is our Section 23 prospect.

At the Wedding Bell and Radium Mountain projects, there is a positive correlation between the first pass structural interpretation of the magnetic data and the historic workings. This could indicate increased porosity or fluid conducts within the sediments, which allowed the uranium and vanadium mineralisation to precipitate out. As a result, key structural features and radiometric anomalies will be further investigated, including ground truthing and priority ranking.

Positive progress is being made with the proposed 2023 drilling program permits at the Wedding Bell project, with approval received from the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Colorado Division of Reclamation and Mining Safety (DRMS). The final step in the approval process is with the San Miguel Board of County Commissioners Meeting scheduled in mid-August.
