Torex Gold Reports Positive Drilling Results from ELG Underground

GlobeNewswire - Tue Jul 11, 2023

TORONTO, July 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Torex”) (TSX: TXG) announces assay results from the Company’s ongoing drilling program at the El Limón Guajes underground mine, including zones referred to as El Limón Deep (“ELD”), Sub-Sill, Sub-Sill South, El Limón Sur Deep, and El Limón West (collectively “ELG Underground”).

Jody Kuzenko, President & CEO of Torex, stated:

“We are excited about the positive results from the ongoing drilling program at ELG Underground. The program is a key facet of our strategy to optimize and extend the mine life at ELG Underground with a view to filling the mill beyond 2027.

“Infill and step-out drilling to the south at El Limón Sur Deep was successful in extending higher-grade mineralization outside of the current resource block model. Several drill holes returned notable intersects over favourable widths including 88.92 grams per tonne gold equivalent (“gpt AuEq”) over 14.5 metres (“m”) in drill hole LS-220, 11.20 gpt AuEq over 29.4 m and 19.03 gpt AuEq over 13.3 m in LS-221, 6.86 gpt AuEq over 16.6 m in LS-187, and 7.46 gpt AuEq over 11.6 m in LS-184. These drill results, which include several higher-grade sub-intervals in addition to other impressive intersects, validate the high grade potential associated with the area that runs from El Limón Sur Deep to the La Flaca fault (600 m), known as the El Limón Sur Trend, with potential to extend deeper.

“Drilling at El Limón Sur Deep also encountered areas of economic copper mineralization which we expect to mine after the flotation circuit, part of the Media Luna Project, is commissioned in late-2024. This will enable us to maximize margins from this zone of the deposit and to compliment copper production from Media Luna.

“Additionally, step-out drilling looking for the north-south continuity of the feeders on the north side of the Z71 fault completed in late-2022 encountered the deepest recognized mineralization at the 400 m elevation within the El Limón Sur Trend, with drill hole SST-299 intersecting 4.17 gpt AuEq over 3.7 m. This hole was drilled within a cluster of holes which included an intersect of 9.56 gpt AuEq over 5.0 m in SST-278 and 6.23 gpt AuEq over 8.9 m in SST-282. This set of drill holes demonstrates the continuity of mineralization at depth at ELG Underground and supports previous information from exploratory drill holes that highlight the resource potential at depth.

“Step-out and infill drilling continue to support our ability to expand and upgrade resources within the ELD, Sub-Sill, and Sub-Sill South deposits. Drilling at a zone approximately 100 m to the west of El Limón Sur Deep, referred to as El Limón West, continues to highlight the potential for another underground mining front below the El Limón Sur open pit. Further work will be conducted in the near future on El Limón West to explore the potential for a second, parallel corridor of mineralization to the El Limón Sur Trend.

“Overall, the positive results from the underground drilling program support ongoing resource expansion and reserve growth within ELG Underground, which in turn supports our strategic focus on filling the mill with higher-grade feed beyond 2027.”

Gold equivalent (“AuEq”) grades use the same metal prices ($1,550/oz gold (“Au”), $20/oz silver (“Ag”), and $3.50/lb copper (“Cu”)) and metallurgical recoveries (90% Au, 86% Ag, and 93% Cu) used in the year-end 2022 Mineral Resource estimate for the ELG Underground (AuEq (gpt) = Au (gpt) + Ag (gpt) * 0.0123 + Cu (%) * 1.6000).

ELG UNDERGROUND – 2023 DRILLING PROGRAM

Through the end of May, approximately 34,300 meters and 177 holes were drilled as part of the 2023 drilling program at ELG Underground. This represents 60% of the planned meters in this area for 2023 (30,000 m under the ELG Underground program and 27,000 m under the near-mine program), for which assays have been received for 54% of the metres drilled. The level of infill drilling is expected to increase through the back half of the year, with a focus on upgrading Inferred mineral resources to the Indicated category. Step-out drilling from south of the La Flaca fault to El Limón Sur Deep will focus on further expanding mineralization with the goal of increasing Inferred mineral resources across the ELG Underground.

The excellent results from the 2022 drilling program and initial results from the 2023 drilling program, including high grade intersects in several of the underground deposits, have been instrumental in exploring the extent of the mineralization at depth. This is supported by an improved understanding of the structural controls of mineralization, which suggest high grade feeders controlled by fault systems trending NNW/SSE and NE/SW, in the intrusive and sedimentary sequence, within a regional North-South deep structural trend (Figure 1). The improved interpretation of mineral controls will be incorporated into future drilling programs as the Company looks to identify higher-margin feed to fill the mill beyond 2027.

Assay results reported in this press release include drill holes completed under the 2023 underground drilling program as well as drill holes completed in late-2022, for which assays were received after the cut-off date for inclusion in the year-end Mineral Resource estimate. Drill hole intersects are core lengths and not true widths.

Results from the ongoing underground drilling program are reported in Table 1 (El Limón Sur Deep), Table 2 (Sub-Sill South), Table 3 (ELD), Table 4 (Sub-Sill), and Table 5 (El Limón West).

El Limón Sur Trend

Drilling completed in late-2022 that focused on the extension of the Sub-Sill and ELD deposits to the south encountered mineralization down to an elevation of 400 m (drill hole SST-299), which is 125 m below the lowest Inferred resource at Sub-Sill and 275 m below the lowest elevation of Inferred resources at ELD. This hole, as well as drill holes SST-278 and SST-282 confirm the existence of deep mineralization that was previously detected in exploratory holes. The mineralization appears to be related to the higher-grade feeders of the El Limón Sur Trend (Figures 1, 2, and 3).

  • SST-278
    • 13.16 gpt AuEq over 16.64 m (11.79 gpt Au, 14.3 gpt Ag and 0.74% Cu)
      • including 21.67 gpt AuEq over 5.39 m (19.73 gpt Au, 21.3 gpt Ag and 1.05% Cu)
    • 9.56 gpt AuEq over 4.95 m (9.13 gpt Au, 6.2 gpt Ag and 0.22% Cu)
  • SST-282
    • 6.23 gpt AuEq over 8.93 m (5.63 gpt Au, 12.2 gpt Ag and 0.28% Cu)
  • SST-299
    • 4.17 gpt AuEq over 3.66 m (4.08 gpt Au, 1.0 gpt Ag and 0.05% Cu)

The resource categorization and expansion program at El Limón Sur Deep has yielded outstanding results, particularly in extending mineralization outside of the current resource block model, both laterally and vertically to the north and south. Drilling at El Limón Sur Deep returned several impressive intersects over favourable widths, which confirm the high grade potential of the main feeders. Drill results from this area include strong copper intersects which are expected to be mined after upgrades to the processing plant (including a copper flotation circuit) are completed in late-2024 as part of the Media Luna Project (Figure 3).

  • LS-220
    • 88.92 gpt AuEq over 14.46 m (88.61 gpt Au, 20.6 gpt Ag and 0.04% Cu)

  • LS-203
    • 9.95 gpt AuEq over 7.50 m (9.56 gpt Au, 10.1 gpt Ag and 0.17% Cu)

Drilling at Sub-Sill South was also successful, with assay results highlighting the potential to upgrade Inferred resources to the Indicated category and expand Inferred resources both laterally and vertically to the north and south (Figure 3).

  • SST-320
    • 9.88 gpt AuEq over 9.62 m (9.41 gpt Au, 11.3 gpt Ag and 0.21% Cu)
  • SST-321
    • 5.77 gpt AuEq over 3.00 m (4.59 gpt Au, 23.3 gpt Ag and 0.56% Cu)
  • SST-286
    • 5.07 gpt AuEq over 7.76 m (4.16 gpt Au, 8.2 gpt Ag and 0.51% Cu)

ELD

At ELD, step-out drilling along the southwest extension of the deposit and infill drilling returned several impressive intersects that indicate the potential to expand resources at depth while upgrading Inferred resources to the Indicated category (Figure 2).

  • LDUG-233
    • 11.29 gpt AuEq over 34.89 m (9.48 gpt Au, 23.6 gpt Ag and 0.95% Cu)
      • Including 21.13 gpt AuEq over 15.10 m (18.03 gpt Au, 45.5 gpt Ag and 1.59% Cu)
  • LDUG-229
    • 9.70 gpt AuEq over 18.17 m (9.20 gpt Au, 6.3 gpt Ag and 0.26% Cu)
    • 8.68 gpt AuEq over 16.87 m (7.63 gpt Au, 25.5 gpt Ag and 0.46% Cu)
    • 10.65 gpt AuEq over 4.00 m (9.47 gpt Au, 10.9 gpt Ag and 0.65% Cu)

Sub-Sill

Step-out drilling to the north and south of the deeper extension of the Sub-Sill deposit and infill drilling around the existing resource continue to support the potential to expand and upgrade resources at depth (Figure 4).

  • SST-306
    • 18.95 gpt AuEq over 4.08 m (18.83 gpt Au, 3.7 gpt Ag and 0.05% Cu)

El Limón West

Follow-up drilling at El Limón West, a zone of mineralization below the El Limón Sur pit and approximately 100 m west of the El Limón Sur Deep deposit, continues to highlight the potential for another new mining front within ELG Underground (Figure 5). Mineralization at El Limón West is controlled and hosted by a phreatomagmatic breccia pipe, which differs from the mineralization commonly associated with the El Limón Sur Trend. This indicates the potential of a second structural corridor and other styles of mineralization across the broader Morelos Property and will be explored further in the near future.

  • LS-207
    • 6.16 gpt AuEq over 16.01 m (4.92 gpt Au, 30.4 gpt Ag and 0.54% Cu)
  • LS-218
    • 8.83 gpt AuEq over 5.21 m (8.10 gpt Au, 25.1 gpt Ag and 0.26% Cu)
  • LS-169
    • 7.52 gpt AuEq over 4.41 m (6.25 gpt Au, 30.3 gpt Ag and 0.56% Cu)

EL LIMÓN GUAJES MINE COMPLEX GEOLOGY

The ELG Mine Complex, located in the central part of the Guerrero Gold Belt in southwest Mexico, is hosted in the Mesozoic carbonate-rich Morelos Platform, which has been intruded by Paleocene granodiorite stocks, sills, and dikes. Skarn-hosted gold mineralization is developed along the contacts of the intrusive rocks and the enclosing carbonate-rich sedimentary rocks of the Cuautla and Morelos formations as well as along the footwall contact of the Mezcala Formation.

Gold mineralization at ELG occurs in association with a skarn body that was developed along a 2-kilometre-long corridor following the northeast contact of the ELG granodiorite stock. The skarn zone that occurs at the marble stratigraphic level of the Morelos Formation is in contact with hornfels developed in the Mezcala Formation. At El Limón, skarn mineralization is also structurally controlled by NE-SW and WNW-ESE trending faults and fracture zones. Skarn alteration and mineralization at ELG are fairly typical of calcic gold-skarn systems. Zones of coarse, massive, garnet-dominant skarn appear within and along the stock margin, with fine-grained pyroxene-dominant skarn more common at greater distances from the contact with the stock. Significant gold mineralization at ELG is associated with the skarn, preferentially occurring in pyroxene-rich exoskarn but also hosted in garnet-rich endoskarn that has been affected by retrograde alteration.

Pre- and post-mineralization dykes and sills are found to crosscut the hornfels and marble, along the structural trends mentioned above, and are spatially associated with the skarn formation.

The style of mineralization at El Limón Sur Deep is like Sub-Sill and ELD, and is characterized by gold, with locally high silver and copper grades. Gold occurs in variably sulfidized, pyrrhotite-rich skarn, while silver and copper mineralization is controlled primarily by the degree of sulfidation of the host skarn. Mineralization is mainly associated with retrograde alteration characterized by the occurrence of phlogopite, amphibole, chlorite, calcite and lesser amounts of quartz and epidote, and local magnetite.

Notes to Table
1)   Intersections are core lengths and do not represent true thickness of mineralized zones.
2)   Core lengths subject to rounding.
3)   Torex is not aware of any drilling, sampling, recovery, or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data.
4)   Gold equivalent (“AuEq”) grades use the same metal prices ($1,550/oz gold (“Au”), $20/oz silver (“Ag”) and $3.50/lb copper (“Cu”)) and metallurgical recoveries (90% Au, 86% Ag and 93% Cu) used in the Mineral Resource estimate for ELG Underground (AuEq (gpt) = Au (g/t) + Ag (gpt) * 0.0123 + Cu (%) * 1.6000).
