Adelaide, SA: Base metals explorer Mithril Resources Ltd (ASX: MTH) is pleased to advise that it has earned an 80% interest in the Illogwa IOCG Target Area tenements under the Sammy Joint Venture by completing expenditure of $2 million.

Illogwa is located on Mithril’s Huckitta Project, approximately 150 kilometres east of Alice Springs, Northern Territory (Figure 1) and lies within three tenements, two of which (ELs 25643 and 25653) are subject to a joint venture with Sammy Resources Pty Ltd (‘Sammy’), a wholly owned subsidiary of ASX-listed Cazaly Resources Ltd (ASX: CAZ).

Mithril has notified Sammy that the earn-in expenditure under the agreement has been completed and Sammy now has 60 days to elect to contribute pro-rata on expenditure going forward or revert to a 1.5% Net Smelter Returns royalty, leaving Mithril with a 100% interest in the project.

As previously announced (ASX Announcement dated 7 August 2012), Mithril has recently commenced a 3,800 metre program of air core, reverse circulation and diamond drilling as the first ever test of four priority drill targets, as well as multiple conceptual geophysical targets.

Each of the priority drill targets has significant outcropping copper mineralisation and associated alteration.

Illogwa represents a newly recognised Proterozoic copper–gold province characterised by a 50 kilometre long belt of structurally deformed granite and sedimentary sequences that contain variable amounts of quartz veining, strong iron and fluorite alteration, and outcropping copper - gold mineralisation.

First results from the drilling are expected by late August 2012 and the Company looks forward to informing the market as they come to hand.
