We sat down with Torq Resources’ CEO Shawn Wallace and Chief Geological Office Michael Henrichsen (🇨🇦 TORQ: 🇺🇸 TRBMF). Results were just announced from Torq’s phase III drill program at the Margarita iron-oxide-copper-gold project. With 14 holes spanning 3,862 m, the program has expanded the Falla 13 discovery and uncovered yet more mineralized zones within Margarita. They intersected 42 m of 1.1 g/t Gold and 0.48% Copper Near Falla 13 and 132 m of 0.48% Copper at Cototuda. Broad copper oxide zones were also found at the previously drilled Margarita corridor. No doubt more good news is on the way, with results from seven more holes expected shortly.
Shawn expressed excitement over the project’s potential given its strategic location near Copiapo’s city, with high-grade infrastructure, and favorable conditions for year-round drilling. He remarked on the considerable value these discoveries added to Torq’s Margarita project, with 2024 set to be an important year.
Michael emphasized the significance of the new findings. He highlighted the discovery of a parallel structure to the Falla 13 zone, and the promise shown by the Cototuda target. He stated that the Margarita’s potential is a continuing story and hopes that it will become another shining star within Coastal Cordillera belt, which is already home to several large producers. Plans are underway to study the characteristics of both discoveries, and to explore the newly discovered zones near Falla 13 and the Cototuda corridor, alongside numerous other unexplored targets.
Very exciting times for the Torq team.
