Rooster Talk Episode 62 is all about why Chalice Mining Limited (ASX: CHN) chose those targets.
Venture Minerals Limited (ASX:VMS) has just received some interesting news on their Thor JV with Chalice Mining.
The Thor JV has been one of the company's assets with an active exploration program. It is an important part of the portfolio of assets which is worked by Chalice Mining. We have had a Coffee with Samso that was dedicated to that topic (Julimar's Twin Brother - The Thor Project - Venture Minerals Limited (ASX: VMS) - Episode 83) as there is a lot of interest riding on what Chalice is doing in the project.
To me, the recent announcement that was published on 13th July has something that is very interesting. The area that they have identified is at a place where I thought was a jog or an area where some extension may have happened. This is fairly observant from the magnetic image where this distinct bend is.
This is a very early stage target and I am not saying that there is an X on the ground to discover. What is nice to see is the coincidence with the geophysics. The subtle nature of the wording in the announcement is not consistent with my observation.
What I mean is that if they did not find anything geochemically at that spot, I would have been disappointed. I encourage viewers to watch and listen to Andrew Radonjic, Managing Director of Venture Minerals, as today´s conversation has some good points for investors to consider with the "tough" times currently on the market.
