Torr Acquires All Crown Grants on the Latham Copper-Gold Project
May 13, 2022
Vancouver, British Columbia (BC) -- (May 13, 2022) – Torr Metals Inc. (“Torr” or the "Company") (TSX-V: TMET.V) is pleased to announce the completion of an assignment agreement for a 100% undivided interest (the “Acquisition”) of 13 undersurface crown grants covering ~2.3 km2 beneath the Company’s Dalvenie mineral occurrence (the “Dalvenie Zone”) located on Torr’s 100% owned Latham Copper-Gold Project (Figure 1). The Dalvenie Zone is ideally situated 30 kilometres (km) south of the town of Dease Lake in northwest BC and is road-accessible through ~2.0 km of gravel road leading west from Highway 37. The Dalvenie Zone is highly prospective for epithermal and porphyry-style mineralization as it parallels a regional copper-gold porphyry trend that includes the Company’s Gnat Pass copper porphyry deposit ~8 km to the north (Figure 1). Torr’s highway-accessible 689 km2 Latham Copper-Gold Project is located within the prolific Golden Triangle region of northern BC.
Malcolm Dorsey, President and CEO, commented, “The acquisition of the Dalvenie Zone crown grants provides a potential km-scale copper-gold-silver exploration target within the Latham Project that Torr plans to better define with the near-term completion of our historical data compilation. As at our Gnat Pass copper-porphyry deposit the Dalvenie Zone is ideally situated adjacent to Highway 37, providing unparalleled accessibility and substantial exploration upside to our upcoming 2022 field program.”

The Acquisition by the Company of certain crown granted undersurface rights (the “Crown Grants”) overlain by the Latham Project in northern British Columbia was completed through an assignment agreement (the “Assignment Agreement”) dated March 25, 2022 with Dr. Joyce Clearihue, an arm’s length third party.

The coincident overlying MTO surface mineral claims and mineral rights are 100% owned by Torr Metals Inc. Under the terms of the Assignment Agreement, the Company paid cash consideration in the amount of $25,000 plus the cost of transferring the title of the undersurface Crown Grants to the Company.
