Troy Resources Limited: Exceptional Channel Sample Results at Casposo Underground
PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 2, 2014) - Troy Resources Limited (ASX:TRY) (TSX:TRY) is pleased to advise that it has entered a zone of extraordinarily high grades in the INCA 1 ore body at its Casposo gold and silver mine in San Juan province, Argentina (table below).
Commenting on the results Troy CEO Paul Benson said; "We always knew we were developing down to the high grade zones within the INCA 1 ore body, but it is obviously very pleasing to get these exceptional results. At this level, the grades are improving with depth and at the current south-east leg of the 2285 level sill the ore body is averaging 41.65 g/t gold and 2,430.04 g/t silver or 82.11 g/t gold equivalent. As each level changes over from developing the sill to production stoping, an increasing proportion of high grade ore will enter the mill feed."

Au_Eq grade calculated using gold to silver ratio of 1:60. The gold: silver ratio is determined using metal price and recovery factors and determined according to the parameters below:
- Au Price US$1500/oz
- Ag Price US$28/oz
- Au processing recovery 90%
- Ag processing recovery 80%
- Metal prices approximate three year averages for each of gold and silver.
- Processing recoveries were determined from updated metallurgical testwork carried out by independent consultants on diamond drill core from Casposo
- It is the Company's opinion that all the elements included in the metal equivalents calculation have a reasonable potential to be recovered and sold.
|The equivalency factor is calculated by the formula:|
|Gold to Silver ratio||=||(gold price ÷ silver price) x (gold recovery ÷ silver recovery)|
|=||(1500 ÷ 28) x (.90 ÷ .80)|
