Torq Resources (TSXV: TORQ | OTCQX: TRBMF) drilled 557m of .38 g/t Gold, .23% Copper and 56ppm Molybdenum at its Santa Cecilia project in Chile. The project is characterized by both gold epithermal and gold–copper porphyry styles of mineralization and demonstrates geological similarities to multi-million-ounce deposits in the region, such as La Coipa, Cerro Maricunga and the immediately adjacent Caspiche and Cerro Casale gold – copper porphyry deposits, held by Newmont and Barrick.

Shawn Wallace, CEO and Chair, stated: “We are extremely pleased with the results from our first two drill holes at Santa Cecilia, which not only intersected mineralization, but higher-grade mineralization than what was drilled historically. We’ve had high expectations for this project since first seeking to acquire it, and now, in our inaugural drill program, it is already proving its potential to become a world-class gold-copper asset. We look forward to resuming drilling at the project following Chile’s winter season, when we will seek to continue to expand the discovery of mineralization at the Cerro del Medio target as well as drill test our high potential copper porphyry targets on the eastern side of the project, nearest to Newmont and Barrick’s Caspiche deposit.”

Michael Henrichsen, Chief Geological Officer, stated: “Santa Cecilia is a rare project that continues to improve technically as our exploration work advances. To have significantly improved the grade in the first two drill holes demonstrates that we have clear vectors moving us toward our objective of finding the higher-grade causative intrusion at Cerro del Medio. In addition, the delineation of porphyry mineralization at surface at the Pircas Norte and Gemelos Norte targets, within 1.5 km of the Caspiche deposit, provides the Company with excellent undrilled exploration opportunities, which we plan to start testing in Q4.”
