Vancouver, British Columbia - June 19, 2018 - Torq Resources Inc. (TSX-V: TORQ, OTCQX: TRBMF) (“Torq” or the “Company”) held its annual general meeting (the “Meeting”) on June 14, 2018 and is pleased to announce that the board of directors from the previous year will continue to hold their positions until the next Meeting.
A Message from Torq’s President and CEO:
Michael Kosowan stated, “One of Torq’s strongest assets is our team. They are the reason we have been able to stay well capitalized in a challenging market, which has positioned us to take advantage of low-cost but high-value acquisitions. Torq’s two new assets in Utah are a prime example. They demonstrate our ability to make accretive acquisitions while pursuing an aggressive exploration program in Newfoundland.”
In regards to the Company’s projects, Mr. Kosowan further stated, “Based on recent mapping and historic surface results, there appears to be a previously unrecognized gold system at our Speedway project in Utah. This system is considered similar to deposits found in Nevada because of the sediment-hosted style of gold mineralization. Likewise, at West Mercur we are seeing Carlin-style mineralization, and our crews are developing an exploration strategy, so watch for news in the coming weeks.”
“Newfoundland maintains great potential for a high-grade gold scenario in Canada. The high-grade vein sets we have seen in historic surface results at our Gander block remain largely under cover, but we are focusing our targeting efforts and will be trenching in the coming months.”
