Drilling initiated London-listed Thor Mining Plc has announced that drill-ing has begun at the Kapunda copper ISR project in South Australia.


Local company EnviroCopper Ltd, in which Thor holds a 30 percent, in collaboration with MinEx CRC, is undertaking a coiled tube drilling pro-gramme at Kapunda, the miner said in a statement.


“Drilling is targeting copper-gold mineralisation approximately 30m from the planned in-situ recovery (ISR) push/pull test site to the south of Ka-punda township. A geophysics IP anomaly was also identified in this area by Copper Range Ltd in 2008. The drilling program is anticipated to take approximately 4 weeks,” according to the statement.


“Based on geology and access, Kapunda is an ideal location to be trialling the next generation of CT drilling, whilst collecting geological information on the copper-gold mineralisation, which is valuable for the further devel-opment of the Kapunda Copper ISR Project,” said Nicole Galloway War-land, the managing director of Thor Mining.
