It said that it had funding throughout the period with a A$1m secured debt facility from a private investor and the group reported a resource upgrade at its Spring Hill gold project.

In its review of operations, the company stated: "The company has continued to make progress on its projects and whilst this has been slow and at times frustrating, the company remains well positioned in its discussions with third parties on potential off-take agreements for the Molyhil Tungsten project and the prospects for Spring Hill and Dundas continuing to improve.

"We reported a resource upgrade at the Spring Hill gold project and elevated levels of nickel and copper being found at Dundas. Importantly, the company has been able to attract additional funds to progress these projects and the directors were delighted to recently announce further funding after the period end."

Thor Mining's share price was down 2.08% to 0.47p at 13:43 on Friday.
