Strong results from five out of 10 first drill holes have glowed fruitful mineralisation at an ideal depth for an in-situ mining operation at GTI Resource’s Thor project in Wyoming.
Five from ten drill holes proven shallow mineralisation ideal for in-situ recovery, particularly with the project’s water table lying a comfortable 100 feet above the uranium host sand.
Eyes will now turn the most prospective drill hole of the burgeoning programme and yielding intersects of 27 and a half feet of at 0.44 per cent Tri uranium octoxide with a dense 1.92-grade thickness.
Outcomes from the explorer have been highly predicted given the scale of projects across Utah, Colorado, and most importantly, its 900 hectares of historic uranium heartland in Wyoming’s Great Divide Basin.
While pockets of concern linger about uranium’s place in the world’s low-carbon energy future, it is undeniable the clean-burning energy source has a vital role in meeting emissions targets.
GTI has affirmed its commitment to transparency and carbon neutrality for the project, adopting an internationally recognised environmental, social and governance framework.
The company will have around 100 drill holes at 50,000 feet now planned, with expected results in the coming weeks.
