Shares of Thor Mining PLC (LON: THR) today surged 4.1% after the company revealed that it had completed the third phase of the gold geochemistry reconnaissance at the Pilbara goldfield tenements in Western Australia.
The program was designed to follow up the success from the stream sediment samples collected across the tenements, which defined a highly anomalous 13 kilometres long gold target zone.
Thor said that the geochemical program focused on the followup stream sediment gold results, with sampling being done upstream toward the potential source rock.
The miner also conducted some additional reconnaissance sampling and one traverse sampled across the stratigraphy in the anomalous areas.
The geochemical samples are currently in-transit to the Perth laboratory, with assay results anticipated in mid-November.
