Torq Identifies Large-Scale Geophysical Anomalies at the Margarita Copper-Gold Project in Chile
VANCOUVER, BC / April 21, 2021 / Torq Resources Inc. (TSXV:TORQ)(OTCQX:TRBMF) ("Torq" or the "Company") is pleased to announce initial results from its ongoing exploration program at the Margarita Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold (IOCG) project located in northern Chile, approximately 65 kilometres (km) north of the city of Copiapo and within the prolific Coastal Cordillera belt that hosts the world-class Candelaria (Lundin Mining Corp.) and Manto Verde (Mantos Copper Holding) IOCG mines, and porphyry-skarn deposits such as Santo Domingo (Capstone Mining Corp.) and Inca de Oro (PanAust/Codelco). Torq's primary objective is to discover a large-scale copper sulphide source for the abundant copper oxide mineralization observed on the southern region of the property. Results from a ground-based induced polarization (IP) geophysical survey have outlined two north-northwest trending chargeability anomalies, approximately 3 km by 500 metres (m) in size, which Torq's technical team believes are associated with sulphide mineralization (Figure 1).
A Message from Michael Henrichsen, Chief Geologist:
"The initial IP chargeability results from Margarita confirm our belief that there is excellent potential to discover a large-scale copper sulphide system on the property. The strength of the anomalies is consistent with sulphide mineralization and we look forward to developing additional geological and geophysical exploration vectors to compliment the chargeability targets in the coming weeks, as we move to drill stage."
