About Torr Metals
Torr Metals Inc. (TSX.V: TMET) is a well-funded mineral exploration company bringing new perspectives to a prolific copper and gold porphyry trend within the Golden Triangle area of northern British Columbia. The Company is focused on exploring the substantial potential of its 100% owned district-scale ~464 km2 Latham Copper-Gold Project, located within the direct shadow of copper-gold giants including Newmont’s Tatogga property and the Red Chris joint-venture between Imperial Metals and Newcrest Mining. The Latham Copper-Gold Project is situated approximately 25 km south of the airport at Dease Lake and is crossed by Highway 37 which provides direct year-round access. Historical work on the project has identified +16 early-stage exploration prospects in addition to +10 known near-surface copper and gold occurrences, including the Gnat Pass porphyry copper deposit that remains open along-strike and at-depth. The Company is set to initiate its maiden exploration program that will test many of these targets.
Latham Copper-Gold Project
The Property area has a lengthy history of exploration activity with the first recorded mineral claim staked in 1899 during the Dease Lake gold rush. The bulk of the historical exploration consisted of geological mapping, geochemical sampling, trench work, drilling, and geophysical surveys with 15 operators focused mainly on the Gnat Pass deposit. This work was for the first time extended to a systematic regional exploration program in 2011 that quickly led to the initial discoveries of numerous occurrences and prospects throughout what is now the Latham Property. Many of these occurrences warrant further exploration as they remain untested by drilling but feature surface mineralization, alteration, host rocks, and geophysical signatures comparable to the regional geological settings of nearby copper-gold porphyry systems at Galore Creek, Schaft Creek, Saddle North, and Red Chris. With a robust historical dataset Torr Metals is well situated to rapidly advance the Latham Copper-Gold Project, with significant upside potential for future major discoveries.
