TinOne Resources further strong tin intercepts and extends mineralization at depth at its Great Pyramid Tin Project, Tasmania, Australia


TinOne Resources Inc. (TSX.V: TORC) (OTCQB:TORCF) (\”TinOne\” or the \”Company\” – https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/tinone-resources-inc/) is pleased to provide further results from its Great Pyramid Tin (Sn) Project (“Great Pyramid” or the “Project”) located in the tier one mining jurisdiction of Tasmania, Australia. Drilling has now concluded, and data compilation and modelling are underway.  The program has been highly successful in continuing to define significant tin mineralization near surface and at depth below and adjacent to historical drilling.


Drillhole 22GPRC021 returned 14m@0.36% Sn from 128 metres and 17m@0.21% Sn from 181 metres

Drillhole 22GPRC014 returned 8m@ 0.14% Sn from 87 metres

“The diamond core extensions of drill holes 22GPRC014 and 22GPRC021 have delivered further encouraging results below the area of the historical resource at Great Pyramid,” commented Chris Donaldson, Executive Chairman. “These drill holes have continued to demonstrate the quality of the Great Pyramid system which remains open in all directions. With the completion of this Phase 1 drill program our team has gained significant insights into the distribution and controls on mineralization and is now undertaking detailed modelling to determine the most appropriate next steps. We look forward to keeping the market updated as we continue to advance the Project.”

Results reported here represent data from both the upper reverse circulation component and the lower diamond drill component of holes 22GPRC014 and 22GPRC021.  The reverse circulation components have been previously reported (see TinOne news releases September 6, 2022 and October 11, 2022) and in this release, the combined intersections are reported where the diamond drill data are contiguous with the previously reported RC data (ie 22GPRC014 from 87 metres and 22GPRC021 from 128).

Results have been received for 3,816 metres of the Companyâ€?s completed 4,687 metre drilling program at Great Pyramid. These results represent complete results for 18 RC reverse circulation drill holes, results from two diamond cored holes and partial results from one diamond cored hole, in addition to results from six diamond tails and partial results from one other diamond tail. 

About the Great Pyramid Tin Project

Geological Setting

The Great Pyramid deposit is located around a topographical feature known as Pyramid Hill and is hosted by Silurian to Devonian Mathinna Supergroup sandstones.  The mineralization is formed by closely spaced sheeted northeast trending cassiterite (SnO?) bearing veins associated with silicification and sericite-pyrite alteration. The deposit style and regional comparisons suggest that a tin-fertile granite exists at depth below the deposit, however this has not been encountered in drilling and the deposit is open at depth. Geological interpretation indicates that certain sedimentary units within the folded Mathinna Supergroup sediments are more favourable hosts and diamond drilling being undertaken by the Company during the current campaign, combined with numerical modelling, will assist in developing a deeper understanding of controls on grade for follow up drilling.

The deposit is currently known over a strike length of more than 500 metres with an average width of approximately 150 metres. The depth extent of the deposit is unknown with only nine historical drill holes greater than 150 metres deep. These rare deeper holes encountered encouraging tin mineralization to depths of approximately 300 metres below surface2.

Historic Resources and Drill Data1

A historical mineral resource estimate was completed on the Great Pyramid Project (the “Historical Estimate”) for TNT Mines Ltd.1,2,3,4,5 (Table 2).


Source: “Inferred Mineral Resource for the Great Pyramid Tin Deposit in Tasmania, Abbott, 2014” prepared by Jonathon Abbott of MPR for Niuminco Group Ltd. The effective date for the Historical Estimate is February 26, 2014.

The Historical Estimate was prepared using the 2012 Australasian Joint Ore Reserves Committee Code (JORC). The Historical Estimate was not completed using CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves and is not supported by a technical report completed in accordance with National Instrument 43-101.

The estimation of the Historical Estimate utilized close spaced historic percussion (~85%) and lesser diamond drill holes with drill spacing in the estimation area typically 15 x 30m and locally closer. The Inferred Resource was estimated using Multiple Indicator Kriging method of 1.5 metre down-hole composites within a mineralized domain interpreted from tin grade. Continuity of tin grades was characterised by indicator variograms at 14 indicator thresholds. The estimates are extrapolated a maximum of approximately 30 metres from drilling. Gemcom software was used for data compilation, domain wireframing, and coding of composite values, and GS3M was used for resource estimation. Resources were estimated into 15 by 30 by 3 m blocks (across strike, strike, vertical) aligned with the 067o trending drilling grid. Planview dimensions of the blocks approximate average drill hole spacing. For precise volume representation, resource estimates include the proportion of block volumes within the mineralised domain below surface. The modelling included a three-pass octant-based search strategy. Search ellipsoid radii (across strike, along strike, vertical) and minimum data requirements for these searches were: Search 1: 20 by 20 by 4 m (16 data), Search 2: 30 by 30 by 6 m (16 data), Search 3:30 by 30 by 6 (8 data). Model validation included visual comparison of model estimates and composite grades, and trend (swath) plots, along with comparison with estimates from alternative estimation methodologies and previous model estimates. The Historical Estimate is restricted to the area of close spaced drilling and 90% of the resource occurs within 40 metres of surface. Although the limited deeper drilling has encountered mineralized material this was not included in the Historical Estimate. The mineralised domain wireframe used to constrain the estimates was primarily interpreted on the basis of tin assay grades and restricts estimates to the volume tested by reasonably close spaced drilling. The wireframe was trimmed by the cross-cutting dyke and soil units interpreted from drill hole logging and geological mapping. Investigation of alternative interpretations included resource estimation with assumed dominant mineralisation controls varying from flat lying to steeply west dipping. These models did not give significantly different total estimates

The reader is cautioned that the Historical Estimate is considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. The reader is cautioned not to treat them, or any part of them, as current mineral resources or reserves. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimates as current resources and TinOne is not treating the Historical Estimates as current resources. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the Historical Estimates can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that any of the historical mineral resources, in whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.  Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category.

The Company has determined that the Historical Estimate is reliable, and relevant to be included here because it was estimated using close spaced drilling with modern geostatistical methods and software by an experienced resource geologist and provides a guide to the location of the Great Pyramid mineralised zone. This will be used to assist in targeting drilling to undertake testing of the extent and grade of the mineralised system.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

Drill core and RC samples were shipped to ALS Limited in Brisbane, Australia for sample preparation and for analysis. The ALS, Brisbane facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 certified. Tin and tungsten are analysed by ICP-MS following lithium borate fusion (ALS method ME-MS85), overlimit results are reanalysed by XRF (ALS method XRF15b).  Forty-eight element multi-element analyses are conducted by ICP-MS with a four-acid digestion (ALS method ME-MS61).

Control samples comprising certified reference samples, duplicates and blank samples were systematically inserted into the sample stream and analyzed as part of the Company�s quality assurance / quality control protocol.
