Thomson Resources says it’s intersected “outstanding” assays from drilling at its Bygoo Tin Project, in the Lachlan Fold Belt in NSW.

Results have now been received for two more batches of assays from the 2022 drilling program, including four holes drilled at the new discovery at “Stewarts”, 300m NW of the Main Zone. The holes were following up an intersection of 111m at 0.45% Sn from 57m depth in BNRC69.

Results from the recently discovered ‘Stewarts’ zone included:

  • 69.5m at 0.5% tin from 60m depth, including 2.5m at 2.1% from 70.6m and 10m at 0.9% from 83m (BNRC80D);
  • 36m at 0.2% from 100m depth, including 3m at 0.6% from 100m (BNRC82)
  • 31m at 0.4% from 120m depth, including 6m at 1.0% from 123m (BNRC83); and
  • 36.2m at 0.45% from 69m depth, including 7m at 1.7% from 98.4m (BNRC84D).

Drilling at Stewarts was initially aimed at defining the width of the zone as it was thought that the discovery hole, BNRC69, may have drilled down-dip.

As it turns out this is partly true, but instead of the mineralisation being 10-15m wide it is variable and up to 60m wide.

Expansion of Stewarts shows project’s potential

“The expansion of the Stewarts zone we are seeing is great and shows the continuing potential of this tin project,” Thomson Resources (ASX:TMZ) executive chairman David Williams said.

“The tin grades are fantastic and interesting to see some copper coming into it as well.”

Results from the final batch of assays are expected in late July or August.
