Assays Confirm Further Massive Nickel Sulphides At Dusty Nickel Project, WA

Toro Energy Limited (ASX: TOE) (‘the Company’ or ‘Toro’) is pleased to announce that geochemical assays have confirmed the massive Ni-sulphides intersected in the discovery holes of the Dimma Ni- sulphide zone (Figure 1), diamond drill holes TED41 and TED42 (Figures 2 and 3), within the Company’s 100% owned Dusty Nickel Project (Figures 3 and 4).


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Geochemical assays have confirmed that massive nickel (Ni) sulphides were intersected in the Dimma discovery drill holes previously identified with hand held portable XRF (hhpXRF) (refer to ASX announcements of 9 August and 8 September 2022)
    • Diamond drill hole TED41 intersected 4.31m of massive Ni-sulphide grading 1.16% Ni, 0.29% copper (Cu) and 0.386 g/t platinum (Pt) and Palladium (Pd) from 243.33m downhole; and
    • Diamond drill hole TED42 intersected 3.13m of massive Ni-sulphide grading 1.42% Ni, 0.17% Cu and 0.605 g/t Pt+Pd from 314m downhole
  • Only ~4km of the 7.5km long Dusty Komatiite magnetic trend has been tested to date and Toro has already discovered four (4) zones of massive or semi-massive Ni-sulphide
  • Together Toro’s four Dusty Ni-sulphide discoveries – Dimma, Jumping Jack, Houli Dooley and Dusty – are the first Komatiite hosted massive Ni-sulphides to be discovered in the region and remain open at depth
Management Commentary:

Commenting on these latest results, Toro’s Executive Chairman, Richard Homsany, said: “Toro continues to consistently deliver value adding results that suggest the Dusty Project has the potential to be a district-scale nickel discovery in a prime mining jurisdiction in Western Australia.

“These impressive results from Dimma, follow the recent confirmation of massive nickel sulphide mineralisation at the Jumping Jack Prospect, located some 400m along trend.

“Toro has only drill tested some 4km of the 7.5km long Dusty Komatiite magnetic trend resulting in the discovery four zones of massive and semi-massive Ni-sulphide mineralisation, all of which remain open at depth. We strongly believe there is considerable potential to continue to grow the footprint of this nickel system with additional drilling and we look forward to providing updates on this strategy soon.”

The Dusty Nickel Project (‘the Project’) is located in the Yandal Greenstone Belt, 50km east of the world class Mt Keith Nickel Deposit (Figure 4).

Analysis of returned geochemical assays of drill core samples from diamond drill holes TED41 and TED42, the discovery holes of the Dimma Ni-sulphide zone, confirm that massive Ni-sulphides were intersected over 4.31m from 243.33m downhole in TED41 and over 3.13m from 314m downhole in TED42.

The average geochemical grades of the massive sulphide zones were found to be:

TED41

  • 4.31m at 1.16% Ni, 0.29% Cu, 0.386 g/t
    Pt+Pd from 243.33m downhole.

TED42

  • 3.13m at 1.42% Ni, 0.17% Cu, 0.605 g/t
    Pt+Pd from 314m downhole.

The Dimma massive Ni-sulphides are the fourth zone of massive to semi-massive Ni-sulphide so far discovered along the Dusty Komatiite.

Massive and semi-massive Ni-sulphides were first discovered at Dusty (refer to ASX announcements of 13 and 16 July 2020), approximately 1.2km along the Dusty Komatiite to the NNW of Dimma.

A second zone of semi-massive Ni-sulphide was discovered at Houli Dooley (refer to ASX announcement of 21 April and 24 August 2021), approximately 800m to the NNW of Dimma, where no other follow-up drill holes have yet to be successfully drilled.

Top 5 Canadian Uranium Stocks of 2024

The uranium spot price hit a two decade high of US$106 per pound in January.

The energy commodity endured low prices for decades, but its recent rapid rise has come amid ongoing supply concerns and a strong outlook for demand. On the supply side, major producers are facing headwinds in ramping up output, while geopolitical concerns are creating supply chain uncertainty. In terms of demand, governments around the world continue to build out their nuclear power capacity in an effort to move away from fossil fuels.

The Investing News Network has recently spoken with many market watchers who are bullish on uranium, including Rick Rule, John Ciampaglia, Lobo Tiggre, Byron King and Justin Huhn. Tiggre mentioned uranium as a sector for which he has near-term optimism. For his part, Huhn pointed out that small- and mid-cap companies have been outperforming larger-cap companies. Rule highlighted the uranium companies he's looking at in this market environment.
