Welcome to Thomson Resources
!!! NEWS !!! Thomson has acquired an advanced tin exploration project at Ardlethan, NSW. The full announcement is available on the left hand menu.
Thomson Resources Ltd (ASX: TMZ) is an Australian exploration company focussed on the discovery and development of high quality mineral deposits in NSW and in particular the unexplored Thomson Fold Belt in the west of the state.
Thomson has discovered multiple Intrusion-Related Gold (gold with copper, lead, zinc, molybdenum, tungsten) systems in the Thomson Fold Belt, a region of deformed and intruded sediments and volcanics thought to be the under-cover, unexplored northern extension of one of Australia’s premier metalliferous mining districts, the Lachlan Fold Belt. Three are considered to be particularly prospective (F1, Cuttaburra A and B). Cuttaburra A* and B* have yielded high grade intercepts; demonstrating for the first time that these systems have the potential to host economic deposits. The high grades were up to 3.7 g/t Au, 113 g/t Ag, 4.2% zinc, 0.5% copper, 1.8% lead, 0.8% tin and 0.6% tungsten. At F1, Thomson has intersected granite at shallow depths for the first time; with anomalous tungsten, molybdenum and gold.
A recent VTEM survey has thrown up a strong VMS copper-zinc-gold type target near Byrock which is a priority for drill testing. Thomson has also recently identified tin-tungsten prospects on its ground. At Wilgaroon a single deep hole, drilled in 1996 but never followed up, yielded 250m of anomalous tin-tungsten mineralisation, with individual metres up to 2.5% tin and 1.4% tungsten. Recently Thomson has acquired from Newmont Exploration an advanced VMS (lead-zinc-silver-copper-gold) project in central NSW as well as a tin-copper skarn and gold project near Kempsey*.
*These projects were awarded drilling grants under the New Frontiers Co-operative Drilling Scheme
