Managing Director's Comments

"Thor is excited about commencing its maiden diamond drilling program at the Alford East Copper-Gold Project, where our geology team's new geological model strongly indicates weathering boundaries opening up copper oxide mineralisation potential at depth and along strike, and zones of potential higher grades adjacent to structural controls.

Geological logging and preliminary pXRF results from the initial drillholes are validating this model and allowing drill targeting to vector in on potential higher-grade zones associated with controlling structures. The step out of 21AED002 and confirmation of a wide indicative higher-grade copper intercept highlights the potential to increase the current Mineral Resource Estimate. We look forward to completing the drill program, [which remains] on time and on budget, with initial assays anticipated to come in over the next few weeks.

At a time when the copper price is at decade highs, Thor is fast tracking the exploration and In Situ Recovery ("ISR") development of the Alford East project, with hydrometallurgical samples being collected for laboratory testing for copper and gold recovery, as well as pump testing to characterise the saline ground water conditions and measure the porosity and permeability of the oxide weathered zones.

Thor has developed an educational, explanatory video on ISR and how it will be utilised at our Alford East Project. ISR is an environmentally sustainable technique which reduces the impact of mining activities on the land, as well as mining costs associated with the extraction of ore. Thor is delighted to be at the forefront of the industry with regards to the implementation of this innovative technology. The video can be found on the Thor website via this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG_1ZGD0WIw

At Ragged Range, the latest soil results are very promising with gold in soil anomalism supporting the stream sediment results, with gold clusters forming sub parallel trends in the Sterling Prospect adjacent to the regional mafic-ultramafic thrust faulted contact. This confirms the significant exploration potential for a quality gold discovery at Ragged Range.

An old track into the prospect area is currently being upgraded to allow for the exploration teams to work independently without having to rely on helicopter support. This will speed up Thor's field work and allow follow up current soil sampling to be completed quickly, as well as allowing access for a drilling rig.

We look forward to providing further updates on our continued progress."

Nicole Galloway Warland, Managing Director, Thor Mining Plc

RAGGED RANGE GOLD PROJECT

The Ragged Range Project, located in the prospective Eastern Pilbara Craton, Western Australia (Figure 1) is 100% owned by Thor Mining - (E46/1190, E46/1262, E46/1355, E46/1340) with the recent additional tenure surrounding the gold anomalous and copper-gold zones, E46/1393 (application).

A copy of the Project Map may be view via the following link:

www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/Maps/20-004-1a-ragged-range-location.jpg

Since acquisition, Thor has conducted several programs of stream sediment sampling and flown an airborne magnetics survey over the tenement area.

Details of the projects may be found on the Thor website via this link: www.thormining.com/projects/ragged-range-pilbara-project

Sterling Prospect - Soil results

As a follow-up to high-grade gold stream results reported from sampling in 2019 and 2020 (AIM:THR announcement 1/12/2020), Thor completed a 392-sample soil program, over two areas of the Sterling Prospect; Sterling Central and Sterling South.

https://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/pdf/asx-announcements/20201201-high-grade-gold-in-stream-sediment-ragged-range.pdf

The samples were collected from a thin residual soil overlying the Euro Basalt and extending westward over the ultramafic Dalton Suite contact. Samples were spaced at 50m along traverses spaced 200m apart. This spacing was designed as a first pass, with potential infill around areas of evaluated results.

At each sample site, two samples were collected, and both sieved to -2mm. The first sample of approximately 2kg was crushed at the Intertek lab in Perth and a sub-split assayed for Au by an aqua regia method AR25 and multi-element assaying by four acid digests with MS25 finish.

The 1kg Bulk Leach Extractable Gold (BLEG) sample was assayed by method CN1000 for gold only.

One orientation line was completed with an additional -80 mesh soil sample collected, duplicating one soil line. The -80 mesh results reported are consistent with the -2mm sampling method along the same line. Blanks and other representative standards were inserted for QA/QC. However, the BLEG samples have anomalous results that are nearly three times higher than both the AR25 and -80# anomalous samples.

The Au BLEG results report a background around 2- 3ppb Au with sample values up to a maximum of 114.23ppb Au. This range is very similar to the previous stream sediment sampling in the area. The BLEG results are shown for the; Sterling Central and Sterling South, in Figure 2. In Sterling Central, one zone of gold anomalism can be traced for 1.2km (over six lines). The strike of this anomalism is oblique to the Euro Basalt and Dalton Suite contact and suggests that gold mineralisation is controlled by minor faults and structures, in this area.

It should be noted that BLEG assaying is a partial digest method whereby gold is extracted, using cyanide over a 24-hour period. This is in contrast to a complete digest assaying method such as fire assaying where all the sample is digested and the total gold value is reported. BLEG values that report above background are considered significant and will show trends of surface gold anomalism. BLEG values that are over five times background (above 15ppb Au) are considered highly significant.

Nickel Gossan

Geological mapping of the nickel gossan which was previously sampled in mid-2020 (AIM: THR announcement 31/7/20) confirmed that the gossan extends over 1km and sits at the base of the Dalton Suite (ultramafic units), adjacent to the older Felsic Volcanics of the Wyman Formation (Figure 1). This position of the gossan at the base of the ultramafic contact is significant from a geological nickel-sulphide model perspective.

Prior to drill testing beneath the gossan, a ground electromagnetic (EM) survey will be undertaken. Thor is currently finalising this program.

E46/1393- Kelly/Ryan Copper- Gold Prospects

A new tenement application E46/1393 in the northeast covers a recently surrendered mining lease M46/171. This area covers several historic copper-gold and copper-base metals mines and prospects. The copper mineralization is associated with the dacite Boolina porphyry, close to the margin of the Corunna batholith, and intrudes the Kelly greenstone belt.

At Kelly's Mine, historic production between 1955-1970, although small, was of very high-grade - 610t of ore averaging 19.47% Cu.(1)

Exploration to date has been sporadic, with no systematic approach over the area. Thor will be targeting areas of mineralisation, zones of alteration, shears/faults and zones of brecciation.

Photos of the historic copper working at Kelly's prospect may be viewed on following link:

www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/maps/historic-workings-kelly-prospect.jpg

Next Steps

Infill soil sampling at a closer spacing of 100m x 25m will be used to finalise drill targets. Further reconnaissance soil sampling at 200m x 50m spacing will be continued along strike to cover the 7km strike length of the Sterling Prospect, where stream sediment sampling has reported anomalous gold values. An existing station track is currently being upgraded to allow for easier access.

Concurrent with the drilling program, regional gold targets including to the northwest and southeast of Sterling prospect, the granitoid contact in the north, plus the copper-gold area in the northeast (Kelly/Ryan Prospects) will be followed up with reconnaissance stream and soil geochemistry programs. Government and company geophysics are being used in conjunction with the geochemical data, to assist with structural and lithological targeting.

Thor Mining was awarded A$160,000 from the Western Australia Government under the EIS Co-funded grants program to drill test gold anomalies at the Sterling Prospect.

COPPER PROJECTS

Thor holds direct and indirect interests in over 400,000 tonnes of Inferred copper resources (Tables A, B, & C) in South Australia, via its 80% farm-in interest in the Alford East copper project and its 30% interest in EnviroCopper Ltd.

Each of these projects are considered by Thor directors to have significant growth potential, and each are being advanced towards development via low cost, environmentally friendly In Situ Recovery (ISR) techniques.

ALFORD EAST COPPER-GOLD PROJECT - SA

The Alford East Copper-Gold Project is located on EL6529, where Thor is earning up to 80% interest from unlisted Australian explorer Spencer Metals Pty Ltd, covering portions of EL6255 and EL6529 (AIM:THR 23 November 2020).

The Project covers the northern extension of the Alford Copper Belt, located on the Yorke Peninsula, SA. The Alford Copper Belt is a semi coherent zone of copper-gold oxide mineralisation, within a structurally controlled, north-south corridor consisting of deeply kaolinised and oxidised troughs within metamorphic units on the edge of the Tickera Granite, Gawler Craton, SA.

Utilising historic drill hole information, Thor completed an inferred Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE), with summaries in Table B (AIM:THR 26 January 2021), consisting of:

-- 125.6Mt @ 0.14% Cu containing 177,000t of contained copper

-- 71, 500oz of contained gold

Diamond Drilling Program

An initial 2000m diamond drilling program focussing on the northern portion of the Alford East copper gold deposit around the AE-5 and AE-8 mineralised domains commenced in June 2021, with two drillholes AED001 and AED002 completed during the quarter (AIM: THR Announcement 11/6/21 and 30/6/21).

http://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/banners/ae-5-drillhole-location-plan.jpg

Historic aircore drilling often stopped on blade refusal (silcrete horizon), with only a number of deeper diamond holes extending to fresh rock, hence this initial drilling program is designed to test the depth extent of the oxide mineralisation, adjacent to and along strike of these mineralised diamond holes.

-- The Company is not aware of any information or data which would materially affect this previously announced resource estimate, and all assumptions and technical parameters relevant to the estimate remain unchanged

A new geological model comprising trough and ridge style of faulting has developed from 3D modelling of geology. This modelling has identified new weathering boundaries and highlighted key structures controlling and offsetting mineralisation (figure 5). Planned holes are hence designed to expand potential weathered zones where the top of fresh rock has yet to be intersected in drilling and validate the controlling mineralised structures. Drilling will also target potential high-grade zones adjacent to these controlling structures.

The two initial drill holes (completed prior to June 30) and internal pXRF results have validated the new geological model, with c opper intercepts including:

-- 21AED001: 106.5m @ 0.14% Cu (pXRF) from 8m, including 33m @ 0.40% Cu (pXRF) from 81.5m

-- 21AED002: 55.5m @ 0.28% Cu (pXRF) from 28m

The validation of the geological model is vitally important for future drill targeting and geological resource modelling. The geological model predicts that the control on copper-gold mineralisation is a NE-SW fault that may join AE-5 to AE-8 (previously Netherleigh Park) mineralisation.

Core is currently being cut and prepared, with the first two holes at the laboratory with assays pending.

During the drilling program, groundwater analysis and core samples will be collected for hydrometallurgical and groundwater studies. The hydrometallurgical work will be undertaken by Mining and Process Solutions (MPS) Pty Ltd with water analysis by Groundwater Science Pty Ltd. The key objective of the initial metallurgical work is to develop the best lixiviant formulation for the oxide copper-gold mineralisation of Alford East deposit in the context of an ISR based approach. Understanding the ground water characteristics, especially pH and chemical composition is essential for the lixiviant trials and any potential ISR development.

In conjunction with the technical assessment, Thor will continue ongoing stakeholder and community engagement, and regulatory activities.

Based on the nature of the oxide mineralisation, the deposit is considered amenable to In Situ Recovery (ISR) techniques. For further information on ISR please refer to Thor's website via this link for an informative video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG_1ZGD0WIw

Funds from this grant are expected to cover the major portion of costs of the program scheduled for the balance of work in 2021.

The MRE for Kapunda, excluding any potential gold credits is summarised in Table C.

During the June 2019 quarter the Company advised of successful gold recovery from Kapunda core, in addition to copper recovery, using a CSIRO developed thiosulphate product, instead of, the more normal, cyanide. As reported ( www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/pdf/asx-announcements/20182019/20190403-isr-gold-recovery---proof-of-concept-kapunda-copper-project.pdf ), gold has been intersected in a number of holes at Kapunda, within the existing copper resource .

Project testwork

Testwork to date has demonstrated that both copper and gold are recoverable, using a range of lixiviants, from historical drill samples, and that the ground conditions will allow the flow of fluids necessary for ISR production.

The 2021 field program is dual purpose:

-- Additional drill testing, along with assay of historical samples, aimed at the confirmation and extension of the known gold mineralisation to allow inclusion of gold in the mineral resource estimate.

-- Site Environment Lixiviant Recovery (SELT) trials. This work (funded by the Australian Government grant) is aimed to be the final technical feasibility demonstration of ISR technology at Kapunda for copper and gold recovery, prior to commencement of commercial feasibility study processes.

ALFORD WEST

Based on substantial historic drilling, a Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) was completed in 2019 (ASX: THR15 August 2019) on several of the deposits at Alford West, totalling 66 .1 million tonnes (MT) grading 0.17% copper (Cu), containing 114,000 tonnes of contained copper, using a cut-off grade of 0.05%Cu (Table D) .

URANIUM AND VANADIUM PROJECTS

Thor holds a 100% interest in two US companies with mineral claims in Colorado and Utah, USA. The claims host uranium and vanadium mineralisation in an area known as the Uravan Mineral Belt, which has a history of high-grade uranium and vanadium production.

Within probable economic transport distance is a processing plant (Energy Fuels White Mesa Mill), which may be a low hurdle processing option for any production from these projects.

Details of the projects may be found on the Thor website via this link: www.thormining.com/projects/us-uranium-and-vanadium .

The uranium-vanadium deposits within the Uravan Mineral Belt, hosted mainly in the Salt Wash member of the Morrison Formation on the Colorado Plateau are classified by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as "Saltwash type" sandstone hosted uranium deposits. They are considered unique amongst the sandstone-hosted type of deposits in that they are predominantly vanadium (V(2) O(5) ) with accessory uranium (U(3) O(8) ). They occur as tabular bodies in reduced sequences of highly oxidised, feldspar-rich sandstones that have substantial fossilised plant material. High-grade uranium and vanadium occur together although vanadium has a much larger halo. Based on production figures the vanadium exceeds uranium in ratios ranging from 3:1 to 10:1 with the ratio increasing southward; averaging 5:1 in the Wedding Bell/Groundhog Project area.

Larger deposits are found in paleochannels (braided streams in the Jurassic period) where accumulations of plant material led to more reduced conditions being retained over time. The Salt Wash member consists of interbedded fluvial sandstone and floodplain-type mudstone. The Salt Wash member is gently folded into a shallow dome meaning it is often close to surface or exposed. The sandstone beds form cliffs or rims with the mudstone units forming slopes. The upper most sandstone contains the majority of the ore deposits.

High grade assay results from due diligence work completed by Thor (ASX:THR 10 September 2020), returning up to 1.25% U(3) O(8) and 3.47% V(2) O(5) , confirm uranium and vanadium mineralisation within the Salt Wash member of the Morrison Formation, which is consistent and typical of the historical production in the Wedding Bell, Radium Mountain area of the Uravan mineral belt.

https://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/pdf/asx-announcements/20200910-us-uranium-and-vanadium-completion-of-acquisition.pdf

Thor is currently working through the Colorado state and federal permitting process, with environmental including Raptor surveys completed. In conjunction, a geological evaluation of the Utah claims is underway.

TUNGSTEN PROJECTS

Tungsten & Molybdenum Price Trends

Tungsten and Molybdenum prices have started to rally over the last 3-6 months, with an increase in demand due to global economic stimulus and geopolitics impacting the supply chain. These price increases will have a significant flow through on the Molyhil project economics, with Thor monitoring this situation closely.

Tungsten - currently at US$292.5/mtu up from US$272.5 /mtu at the start of June quarter (US$205/mtu 12 months ago) (Graph 1)

Molybdenum - currently at US$18.5/lb up from US$11.1/lb at start of June quarter (US$7/lb 12 months ago) (Graph 1)

MOLYHIL TUNGSTEN / MOLYBDENUM PROJECT - NT (100% Thor)

The Molyhil tungsten-molybdenum-copper deposit is 100% owned by Thor Mining and is located 220 kilometres north-east of Alice Springs (320 km by road) within the prospective polymetallic province of the Proterozoic Eastern Arunta Block in the Northern Territory.

A copy of the Tenement and Prospect Location Plan may be viewed via the following link:

https://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/Maps/12-002-1b-molyhil-location.jpg

The deposit consists of two adjacent outcropping iron-rich skarn bodies, the northern 'Yacht Club' lode and the 'Southern' lode. Both lodes are marginal to a granite intrusion; both lodes contain scheelite (CaWO(4) ) and molybdenite (MoS(2) ) mineralisation (Figure 10). Both the outlines of the lodes and the banding within the lodes strike approximately north and dip steeply to the east.

A full background on the project is available on the Thor Mining website www.thormining.com/projects .

In April 2021, (AIM:THR announcement 8 April 2021) a revised Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) was completed comprising Measured, Indicated, and Inferred Mineral Resources, totalling 4.4 million tonnes at 0.27% WO(3) (Tungsten trioxide), 0.10% Mo (Molybdenum), and 0.05% Cu (Copper) using a 0.07% WO(3) cut-off (Table E). The estimation of WO(3) and Mo using Mixed Support Kriging was undertaken by Golder Associates ("Golder"), with the estimation of Fe and Cu by Ordinary Kriging was undertaken by Resource Evaluation Services ("RES")

-- To satisfy the criteria of reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction, the Mineral Resources have been reported down to 200 m RL which defines material that could be potentially extracted using open pit mining methods.

In conjunction with the Mineral Resource Estimate, 3D geological modelling identified two prominent structures - Yacht Club fault and South Offset fault. Based on the geological timing of these faults they may have a significant impact on mineralization, hence creating targets for potential extensions.

Modelling of the 3D magnetics and the position of the modelled South Offset Fault, strongly implies an offset of the magnetic material (magnetite skarn) host to the tungsten-molybdenum mineralisation, identifying a strong magnetic anomaly, south of the fault. Although there are a few drillholes to the south of the South Offset Fault, these have not intersected the magnetic body. The GDC funding will be used to drill test this magnetic target.

An image showing the magnetic drill target may be viewed via the following link:

http://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/maps/21_molyhil_magnetic-target.jpg

Thor Mining was awarded A$110,000 in June 2021 from the Northern Territory Government as part of the Resourcing the Territory, Geophysics and Drilling Collaborations (GDC) program. Th ese funds will go towards drill testing these recently identified magnetic targets adjacent to the mineralisation at the Molyhil tungsten-molybdenum deposit.

Full details of the Geophysics and Drilling Collaboration including successful applications and their project titles can be found on the NTGS website:

https://resourcingtheterritory.nt.gov.au/about/gdc

NEXT STEPS

To enhance the Project economics the following activities are to be undertaken:

   1.   Geotechnical drilling for pit slope optimisation: 

The pit walls are mostly within competent granite, and Thor have identified the potential via targeted geotechnical drilling to increase the pit slope angles from 48 degrees which, if successful, would ultimately reduce the waste to ore ratio and hence operating costs. This would reduce mining costs in the existing ore reserve model, and also allow economic mining, deeper in the open pit, plus reduce the footprint of the waste storage dump.

https://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/pdf/asx-announcements/20182019/20180823-asx-molyhil-dfs.pdf

   2.   Ore sorting review: 

X-Ray (XRT) ore sorting was at two sizes, initially set at -55 mm to +25 mm, and -25 mm to +10 mm; this technology has since been improved, allowing sorting with improved precision and also allowing sorting of finer particles, warranting further testing. Any improvement in ore sorting outcomes should reduce both capital and operating costs of the proposed Molyhil operation.

   3.   Depth Potential - MRE Classification: 

The Measured, Indicated and inferred Mineral Resource Estimate is currently based only on mineralisation above 200m RL; drilling at depth in conjunction with pit design and optimisation has the potential to grow the mineral resource estimate at depth.

Based on a Feasibility Study completed in 2018, the mineralised areas below the 200m RL appear economic for mechanised underground mining techniques however requires further geotechnical work to determine economic grade cut-offs below this level

https://www.thormining.com/sites/thormining/media/pdf/asx-announcements/20172018/20180115-asx-mh-ore-reserve-clarification.pdf

   4.   Drilling Targets: 

Drill test geological and magnetic anomalies identified within the area of mineralisation.

   5.   Regional Exploration: 

Follow up the priority regional magnetic targets with geochemical analysis.

   6.   Revise Feasibility Study based on the outcomes of the activities listed above. 

The Company is in discussion with several Australian Commonwealth government agencies each of which are mandated to assist companies with projects to develop and produce critical minerals, which includes tungsten. These agencies include Export Finance Australia, Defence Export Facility, Critical Minerals Facilitation Office and the North Australian Infrastructure Facility. Further announcements will be made as appropriate.

PILOT MOUNTAIN TUNGSTEN PROJECT - NEVADA USA (100% Thor)

Thor's Pilot Mountain Project, acquired in 2014, is located approximately 200 kilometres south of the city of Reno and 20 kilometres east of the town of Mina, located on US Highway 95.

The Pilot Mountain Project is comprised of four tungsten deposits: Desert Scheelite, Gunmetal, Garnet and Good Hope. All of these deposits are in close proximity (three kilometres) to each other and have been subjected to small-scale mining activities at various times during the 20th century.

A full background on the project is available on the Thor Mining website: www.thormining.com/projects .

The Pilot Mountain resource is substantial on a global scale, and has potential for significant growth, in particular from the discovery in the August 2017 drilling program of an additional parallel zone of scheelite mineralisation at the Desert Scheelite deposit.

The Desert Scheelite resource, which outcrops at surface at the western end for more than 400 metres, has potential to develop into a long-term open pit mining operation which, when supplemented by higher grade mineralisation from the other deposits at Pilot Mountain, has the potential for a longer-term profitable operation.

This significant tungsten resource is strategically located in the USA and tungsten was confirmed by the US Department of the Interior as a critical mineral in early 2018.

Locked cycle testwork on material from the Desert Scheelite deposit, was completed during the June 2019 quarter, resulting in production of a high grade scheelite concentrate grading 68% WO with recovery of 73.6%.
