Mt Monger Project
The Mt Monger project lies within the Gindalbie Terrane of the Eastern Goldfields Granite–Greenstone Terrane, a subdivision of the Norseman–Wiluna Greenstone Belt which is part of the Archaean Yilgarn Craton (Figure 1). The project area is underlain by the Bulong Anticline that is part of the Gindalbie Terrane bounded by the Mt Monger Fault to the west, the Emu Fault and Penny Dam Conglomerate to the east and the Randall Fault to the SE which is locally called the Bare Hill Shear. Historical exploration has located multiple gold trends within Torians Tenure (Figure 19) as well as some high-grade intersections that require further investigation (Figure 20).
The Mt Monger region has produced approximately 1.67m oz of Gold

Torian’s Mount Monger Project
Torian’s Mount Monger Project is comprised of two distinct areas “Wombola” and “Mount Dam” (Figure 2). The Mount Dam area is located approximately 11km to the southeast of Wombola area. Figure 7 shows Torian’s Mount Monger tenement outlines and current gold prospects (blue labelled boxes) and major mines and gold resources owned and developed by Silverlake Resources Limited Mount Monger Project – Daisy Complex (red dots with SLR’s mine/resource name and current JORC compliant resource in kilo-ounces or million-ounces gold).

Historical Drill Results
As of August 2020, Torian's geological team had uncovered 7,356 historical drill holes with up to 50,000 metres of drilling within Torian’s tenements. Work to interpret this data is ongoing. (August 2020)
An initial priority target has been identified with significant historical RC drilling and some diamond core drilling around the Providence Prospect of Torian’s Wombola tenement area (Figure 4). Providence is along strike from the adjacent historical Wombola Dam and Wombola open-cut mining pits to the northeast (Figure 3) and current Silver Lake’s Mineral Resources (ASX: SLR) announcement entitled "Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves Statement" dated 27 August 2019.
