Torian Resources Limited (ASX:TNR) Significant Arsenic Surface Anomaly at Tyrannus Prospect
Torian Resources Limited (ASX:TNR) is pleased to announce that surface pXRF and field work conducted over recent weeks has uncovered two new high priority targets at the Mt Stirling Gold Project.

Tyrannus is a new significant ~400m strike >10ppm As (arsenic pXRF surface soil anomaly) with a peak 46ppm As which has been discovered on the NNW Ursus Fault position.

The structural setting is significant as the Tyrannus discovery is situated on an inflection and splay junction of the Wonambi Shear termination onto the prolific Ursus Fault, ~400m east of Mt Stirling gold mineralisation.

Tyrannus position is along strike of Red5 Cerebus-Eclipse (2.8Mt @ 1.2g/t for 112k oz) and Centauri deposits (1.7Mt @ 1.5g/t for 81.3k oz) both located in similar positions to Ursus Fault.

Further pXRF infill surveys, along with structural and geological mapping, will help delineate and vector to potential gold mineralisation, AV and RC drill testing.

A further significant ~260m >100ppm As anomaly has also been discovered to the immediate west of Viserion mineralisation, on the Viserion Shear with a peak 1,244ppm As.

Although in close proximity to multiple drill sections of the recently drilled Mt Stirling Viserion lode, the surface position of this Viserion Shear target has not been tested, and has the potential to be sub-parallel mineralisation.

Hydra infill pXRF has delineated a ~340m strike >100ppm As with a peak 3,023ppm As surface anomaly situated on an inflection of the Viserion Shear ~ 1km NW and along strike of the Mt Stirling resource on the Viserion shear.

The Hydra target is ~500m to the NW of the Viserion Shear newly discovered target, and is likely to be linked, with the potential of >1km strike continuity prospectivity if so.

These anomalies were uncovered using the Company's pXRF machine to analyse soils samples from the Company's ongoing surface geochem surveys over prospective structural and conceptual targets.

Arsenic has previously correlated with gold in the region, and recently led to the discovery of the Viserion lode at Mt Stirling. The Company is planning RC drilling to test these high priority targets and is awaiting permitting.

Torian's Executive Director Mr Peretz Schapiro said "As a Company we are committed to continuing our systematic exploration of the Mt Stirling Gold Project. In addition to working on proving up further ounces at the open Mt Stirling Resource, we are continuing to uncover further high priority targets of which we are excited to further explore.

As is clear from today's announcement we are blessed that the Mt Stirling Gold Project is endowed with so many high priority and prospective targets. We are eager to recommence RC drilling at the project and look forward to keeping the market informed of our progress."
