Positive First Drill Hole Results


Thor Explorations intersects 16 metres true width (mtw) at 4.7g/tAu including 1.6 mtw at 22.3g/tAu and 2.4 mtw at 11.4 g/tAu at its Segilola gold project.

Thor Explorations Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: THX) (“Thor” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce positive results of the first drill hole (SGD155) in its ongoing 5,500 metre “proof of concept” diamond drill program.

The drill hole intersected the primary high grade gold mineralised zone of the ore body, returning 16 metres at 4.7g/t extending the orebody down-dip. The Company also reports that logging of drill holes SGD156 and SGD157 indicate strong potential for continuity of the mineralised zones further down-dip, with visible gold identified in the core.

The drilling program is continuing and the Company expects to announce the results of SGD156 and SGD 157 within the next 2 weeks.

Assay results for SGD156 and SGD157 are pending. SGD105 and SDG091 were drilled by previous explorers.
