TSX-V: TRO OTCQB: TNREF
The identification and implementation of a linked epithermal-porphyry geological model at Thor suggests that the +2km long existing epithermal deposit is related to a much larger source that remains undiscovered, and concealed below the surface - Namely a porphyry body such as that found at the Max mine located 8km to the southwest. The porphyry bodies are commonly mineralized in British Columbia with valuable metals.

The Thor epithermal deposit overlies a large magnetic feature and conspicuous 'donut' in the conductivity models derived from the airborne MT survey. Based on this information, Taranis has been able to identify a large target that underlies the epithermal deposit that is believed to be related to an intrusive body that is not exposed at surface.
The Jowett Formation is highly altered around this feature and includes epidotization, albitization and is highly magnetic - all signs of alteration related to an underlying intrusive body. Click on the image to see it in more detail.
Thor Project Highlights
- 100%-owned, capitalizing on 17 years of successful exploration, with near & long-term catalysts for growth. 27 Crown Grant Mining Claims with surface rights over the main epithermal Mineral Resource and a possible underlying concealed porphyry deposit.
- Received a 10,000 tonne Bulk Sample Permit in June of 2021 to operate a modern Gekko InLine Pressure Jig plant that will produce a pre-concentrate onsite used to characterize the polymetallic deposit, and be subsequently sent to a hydrometallurgical plant in Montana for upgrading prior to smelting.
- The Thor epithermal deposit is high-grade and near surface, defined with over 250 drill holes and is still open to the north end of the deposit.
- Taranis believes the Thor project hosts a unique type of porphyry copper deposit called a "DASH" deposit. These deposits are hosted entirely within sedimentary rocks, and have a very unique type of alteration unlike volcanic-hosted porphyry deposits worldwide. Evidence for this exists in the nearby Max molybdenum deposit that is entirely hosted within sedimentary rocks, and other famous examples include Bingham Canyon in Utah, USA.
- DASH deposits could be the answer to British Columbia's long-awaited problem that will lead to the discovery of new porphyry deposits, in areas that are easily accessible and have existing infrastructure.
